Glasgow Warriors have confirmed their team to play Leinster in the final home game of the regular Magners League season tomorrow night (Friday 23 April, kick-off 8pm).

The Warriors have made two changes, one enforced, to the team that defeated Ulster last weekend.

Scotland captain Chris Cusiter is given the nod at scrum-half, moving Mark McMillan to the bench, whilst Hefin O’Hare takes his place on the wing as DTH van der Merwe is unavailable due to a dead leg.

Speaking ahead of tomorrow’s game, Cusiter said: "It’s a huge game for the club. We need to get the four points to keep moving up the table.

"There are just two games to go and we know that if we don’t take advantage of this opportunity then the season could come to a pretty quick end.

"The teams that win and do well are the teams that perform at their best at this time of year.

"We need to produce our best rugby to secure a place in the play-offs and the boys are feeling fresh so I think we’re in a good place to do that."

New signing for next season, National Academy stand-off Duncan Weir, is named on the bench alongside Rob Dewey who is back fit following a season plagued by injury.
