Neil Herron is unavailable so the experienced winger Tom Steven comes into the side. The props continue their rotation with Strain and Cullinane starting in what is an otherwise unchanged starting lineup and bench.
Last week's quarter-final cup success against Ayr certainly gave the club a real boost. The BT Premiership is the main event, of course, and so this is correctly labelled a huge match as victory or loss will have significant implications for either club. We had an excellent and highly-competitive training session on Tuesday night and it's safe to say our players are up for it. Should be a good game too; the new pitch at Old Anniesland provides a great surface for attractive rugby.
