It’s The Return of the Jedi as Glasgow favourite James Eddie makes his first appearance since the start of October
This season has been a tough one for the Warriors and their fans. To paraphrase Toulon’s owner, Mourad Boudjellal – it’s difficult to go from Lorne sausage to chipolatas. One more chance then to keep the European campaign on track.
The Warriors are drinking at the last chance saloon in the Champions Cup. Here’s how they could still progress.
It’s a very different Glasgow line-up that takes on Racing compared to the side named back in November. Only 6 players take up the same positions with a 7th (Finn Russell) shuffled out from stand-off to inside centre.
Gregor Townsend changes 6 of the starting XV and makes 3 positional switches from last week’s record Champions Cup win. Wayne Pivac tops the master though with 9 new faces and 2 positional alterations in the Scarlets side as they look to get some revenge for the previous round’s hammering.
Josh Strauss is the only returning starter for Glasgow as they seek revenge for the loss to Scarlets in the season opener at Scotstoun.
