Cammy Mather Returns To Lead Glasgow In Semi-Final

Cammy Mather will be back in his accustomed role as Glasgow's captain tomorrow less than a week after he played for Scotland in the Rugby World Cup quarter-final against Australia. He will be leading Glasgow in the Celtic Cup semi-final against Ulster at Hughenden.Mather had been ever-present in the Glasgow team this season until he was called up to join the Scotland squad in Australia as an emergency replacement four weeks ago. Consequently, he has missed Glasgow's past four matches, but, adding to his four caps in 1999 and 2000, he played as open-side flanker in Scotland's World Cup matches against France, Fiji, and Australia. Tomorrow he will be in his usual Glasgow position at blind side.Mather's return, with Andrew Wilson stepping down, is among four changes from the team who started the Celtic League match that Glasgow lost to Celtic Warriors by 23-29 at Bridgend last Friday. Mather's fellow Scotland cap, Matt Proudfoot, who has had two weeks out with a leg injury, also resumes. So do Graeme Morrison, the Scotland Under-21 centre, who was rested last week, and Daniel Parks, the stand-off who played at Bridgend as a second-half replacement.Morrison takes over at inside centre from Alan Bulloch, Parks will be at stand-off for Calvin Howarth, and Proudfoot replaces Euan Murray as loose-head prop. Murray has a broken nose, and Andrew Kelly returns as back-up prop among the replacements. Simon Gunn, who, like Proudfoot, has missed the past two matches, has recovered from a leg injury, but he, too, will be on the bench, with Scott Lawson continuing as starting hooker.Tomorrow's cup-tie will kick off at 7.30pm.
