Warriors change two

Glasgow have made two changes to their starting XV for this weekend's return Heineken Cup tie against reigning champions Toulouse.

Both changes for Saturday`s game at the Stade Ernest Wallon are in the backs where the scrum-halves and wings swap places with their respective replacements.

Hefin O'Hare is selected in front of Federico Aramburu, while Colin Gregor is preferred to Henry Pyrgos in a bid to bolster the experience in the starting line-up.

Glasgow head coach Sean Lineen said: "We just a little more leadership and experience.

"We had a good team out last weekend but it's now about putting our performance right in such a massive game.

"There aren't many bigger games than Toulouse away in the Heineken Cup."

Last weekend saw Toulouse run in three tries to one against Glasgow as the home side lost 16-28 at Firhill.

"We can't take much confidence from the weekend because we didn't play that well," Lineen added.

"Our set piece wasn't good but we never gave up and that's hugely encouraging. We can't give them that much ball or that much respect this weekend."

Lineen added: "I'm confident well do a lot better. It's a fantastic stadium to play at, but the guys just need to focus and make sure we get the performance we need."
