Glasgow Warriors head coach, Sean Lineen, today described Friday night’s Magners League showdown with Leinster (8 January, kick-off 8pm) at the RDS as a "big test" for his squad as they seek to continue their occupation at the top of the Magners League table.

Lineen said: "This is a big test for us. We are away from home against the European champions but the players are really up for it.

"We know what Leinster are about and we know they have a great pitch will attract a massive crowd."

The Warriors have been forced to make just one change for Friday night’s clash.

The change comes in the back-row where Johnnie Beattie comes in at no.8 for Richie Vernon who is suffering from a flu bug.
