Jon Petrie And Andrew Henderson Return Against Borders

Jon Petrie and Andrew Henderson have been released from the Scotland squad to play for Glasgow in the Celtic League match against The Borders at Netherdale tomorrow. However, another of Glasgow's caps, Dan Parks, has been rested from action this week at the request of the Scotland team management.Petrie and Henderson played only as replacements for the last few minutes of the Rome international in which Scotland lost to Italy last week. Obviously, they have more need of match practice than Parks, who played all but two minutes of the Celtic League match in which Glasgow beat the table-topping Gwent Dragons by 48-20 at Hughenden last Friday. Parks scored 18 points in that match with a try, five conversions, and a penalty goal.Glasgow's score against Dragons was their highest since they demolished Pontypridd 59-14 at Hughenden in August 2001. After that it is hardly surprising that Glasgow have kept their changes to the minimum to accommodate the return of Petrie and Henderson and cover the absence of Parks. Henderson and Calvin Howarth replace Alan Bulloch and Parks, respectively at inside centre and stand-off, whereas Petrie returns at No.8, with Roland Reid switching to blind side in place of Andrew Wilson. Petrie also resumes the captaincy from Glenn Metcalfe.Friday's Netherdale contestants are level on points at the foot of the league table. Glasgow, however, have the edge on points-difference, and victory would be crucial in easing ahead in the contest to be one of the two Scottish teams to qualify for next season's Heineken Cup.The Netherdale kick-off will be 7.30pm.
