This has proved to be one of the hardest to predict seasons in the history of the Pro 12 – but that won’t stop OTOTM from trying!
With 6 players returning from Scotland duty and another 4 available again after injury, Glasgow are able to put out a much stronger side than expected for their match-up with the Dragons.
The unpredictable nature of the 2015/16 season lends itself perfectly to the return of the rugby nerd’s favourite – it’s 7 Surprising Stats!
Only 9 of the 30 players who kicked off the Pro 12 Grand Final last May are named in their sides respective starting line-ups for Friday night’s league clash.
Just 4 players return for Glasgow from the last time these 2 clubs met – the Pro 12 playoff semi-final – with Ryan Grant the only Warriors’ player to start both fixtures. The home team can call on 14 of the 23 who lost out in dramatic fashion at Scotstoun in May as they look to maintain their position at the top of the league.
Severe restrictions on Toony Tombola this week but Glasgow still field a side with plenty of experience.
