Duncan Weir partira’ titolare nei Warriors che domani pomeriggio – kick off 1pm – affronteranno gli Scarlets nella terza giornata di Champions Cup.

I Glaswegians, come i gallesi, sono ancora in cerca del primo successo europeo di questa stagione e, come accaduto in occasione del primo rinvio, anche stavolta Townsend conferma in blocco il gruppo che sarebbe dovuto scendere in campo la settimana precedente.

C’e’ un solo cambio nei 23, con Grayson Hart che in panchina prende il posto di Ali Price. “The Scarlets are doing very well in the PRO12 and will provide tough opposition this weekend” ha detto Townsend al sito ufficiale del club.
They have already beaten us at Scotstoun this season and it’s important that we learn from that game, as we look for our first victory in Europe this season.We’ve gone with the same starting XV which would have played last weekend, as those players deserve the opportunity and we’re looking forward to seeing James (Malcolm) make his first start for the club.

Come abbiamo gia’ detto in settimana, Wayne Pivac dovra’ fare a meno di numerosi elementi della sua rosa, tra cui i due ex di giornata, DTH van der Merwe e John Barclay.
