Glasgow Warriors – Scarlets Match Prediction | 05-10-2019 14:35

Theyve picked up try BPs in all bar two of those fixtures. So far under Dave Rennie, Glasgow have played 14 PRO14 regular season matches at home. There was a dog of a game v Edinburgh (only enlivened by a mid-match fire alarm) with just a single late try for Lee Jones; and a fixture earlier this season when they scored 3 tries in the first half against Munster but couldnt complete the job in the 2nd period.

Were really looking forward to it. It makes for a good match-up. Both teams like to play, use the width of the field, and with that type of play it could be a great game. We have a lot of respect for Glasgow, they have a good coaching group, some great players and theyve got a very strong home record.

5 penalties conceded (to 11 by the Cheetahs) was a strong effort. There was still another yellow for Alex Dunbar but it was definitely a step in the right direction. After a hammering at the hands of the former Connacht scrum half when the Warriors played...er Connacht at the end of last season (15 pens, 2 sin bins and a penalty try in a pear tree) Glasgow got on much better with Mr Murphy earlier in the current campaign.

Inside centre Sam Johnson missed Glasgows last match against Edinburgh but returns for this one next to Nick Grigg in midfield, with Tommy Seymour also returning to the wing. Jonny Gray and Tim Swinson are in the engine room whilst Ryan Wilson captains the side from No.8. Team news (Glasgow Warriors): Racing 92-bound Finn Russell will start his last match for the Warriors at Scotstoun and will aim to make it the perfect goodbye alongside George Horne in the half-backs.

However Scarlets are the only side in the PRO14 against whom Glasgow have never picked up a try BP at Scotstoun. In fact 2008 is the last time the Warriors managed 4 tries (or more) at home against the men from Llanelli. The visitors arent averse to a try or two themselves but theyve also shown theyre capable of rolling up their sleeves and grinding it out when required. Conditions could well dictate which versions of these sides play on Saturday.

Team news (Scarlets): Scarlets supporters will be delighted to see the return of one of their key playmakers as Johnny McNicholl comes back from a shoulder injury and straight into a huge match. The Kiwi replaces the injured Leigh Halfpenny at full-back, whilst in the pack Aaron Shingler comes in at blindside flanker, Tadhg Beirne returns to lock to partner Steve Cummins and Lewis Rawlins moves to the bench.

Many of Scarlets tries this campaign have resulted from turnovers and there is no-one better at delivering them than Tadhg Beirne. The versatile forward has claimed 37 turnovers this season and Gray will have to be at his best to disrupt Beirnes huge influence. Gray seems to be a central figure whether he represents Scotland or Glasgow, captaining his club side on many occasions despite being just 24, and is usually seen in the higher echelons of the tackle count in any game. Gray suffered a shoulder injury a month ago but comes into the Warriors squad fresh and ready for the steep challenge that Scarlets present.
