World Cup Players Resume Against Llanelli

Glasgow will be fielding all of their six Rugby World Cup players in the team for the Celtic League match against Llanelli Scarlets at Hughenden on Friday evening.One of them, Cameron Mather, Glasgow's captain, returned as quickly as possible from RWC duty in time to play against Ulster in the Celtic Cup semi-final 10 days ago. However, he had not been an original selection for the World Cup, joining the Scotland squad for the last three games, and he was eager to resume his role in leading Glasgow from the blind-side flank in the cup-tie. He is now joined by Glenn Metcalfe at full back, Andrew Henderson at inside centre, Graeme Beveridge at scrum half, Jon Petrie at No.8, and Gordon Bulloch as hooker."It's great to have all of our World Cup players back in the team," Hugh Campbell, Glasgow's head coach, remarked.In all, 10 changes, three positional, have been made in the team who started in the cup semi-final that Glasgow lost to Ulster. Euan Murray and Calvin Howarth also return to the starting line-up, the latter resuming at stand-off in a completely recast back division.Beveridge and Howarth replace Sam Pinder and Daniel Parks as half-backs, and in the shuffle behind them Rory Kerr switches from full back to left wing, Sean Lamont from left to right wing, and Graeme Morrison from inside to outside centre. David Millard and Gareth Maclure drop out. In the pack Bulloch, Murray, and Petrie replace Scott Lawson, the unavailable Matt Proudfoot, and the injured Paul Dearlove.Friday's match will kick off at 7.30pm.
