Scotland quartet drafted in as Glasgow take on Munster

Sean Lamont, Gordon Reid, Tim Swinson and Duncan Weir have been drafted into Glasgow's team to face Munster after being recalled from Scotland duty.

A fifth Scotland squad member, Zander Fagerson, is on the bench for Friday's Rugby Park clash.

Winger Taqele Naiyaravoro comes in along with number eight Josh Strauss, while hooker James Malcolm is set to make his first Guinness Pro12 start.

Another hooker, Cammy Fenton, could make his debut from the bench.

Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend said: "It's our first home game for a few weeks, against one of our contenders for a play-off spot so it's an important match for us.

"Munster are one of the top teams in the league, so we're well aware of the challenge we face at Rugby Park.

"It's great to include Cammy Fenton in a matchday squad for the first time, while we've been boosted by the return of some of our Scotland players.

"The whole occasion at Rugby Park last time was great and we're looking forward to playing there again."
