Rory Mckay'S First Glasgow Start This Season

Rory McKay will make his first start for Glasgow for nearly a year when the Celtic League campaign continues with the match against Munster tomorrow at Hughenden.His last starting appearance was in the 23-10 win against The Borders in the final match of last season. In the interim, though, he has had six games as a replacement, scoring a try in the league match against Leinster at Hughenden on October. The most recent of those six appearances was when Glasgow beat Saracens 33-8 at Hughenden in January in the return leg of the Parker Pen Challenge Cup second-round tieAlan Bulloch and Andrew Wilson also return to Glasgow's starting XV against the league champions. However, both of them played as replacements in the 15-11 win against The Borders on Glasgow's last outing, two weeks ago at Netherdale, Bulloch scoring the first of his team's two tries.Bulloch and McKay are needed at inside centre and No.8 respectively because Andrew Henderson and Jon Petrie are back on Scotland duty. Wilson will be at blind side in place of Roland Reid, who has had to go home to South Africa because of a family illness.Glenn Metcalfe, who was replaced by Bulloch before half-time in the Netherdale match, has recovered from a dead leg and will resume at full back. He also takes over again as captain in the absence of two Scotland squad members, Cammie Mather and Petrie.Mark Sitch, Glasgow Hawks" No.8, makes his first appearance in the Glasgow squad with selection as back-row cover among the replacements. He is needed as Glasgow will be without the injured Paul Dearlove as well as Mather, Petrie, and Reid.Glasgow have been unbeaten in their past four matches. A home win against Ulster by 27-25 last month was followed by a 28-all draw away to Connacht, and they then had their best score of the season, beating Gwent Dragons by 48-20 at Hughenden. After that, two weeks ago, they went to Gala and snatched a narrow win.That set of results included Hughenden wins against the then league leaders, Ulster and Dragons. It is Glasgow's best run since they started last season with four successive Celtic League victories.Tomorrow's match will kick off at 7.35pm, five minutes later than the norm to accommodate TG4, the Irish television channel.Glasgow's team:15 Glenn Metcalfe (captain)14 Rory Kerr13 Graeme Morrison12 Alan Bulloch11 Sean Lamont10 Calvin Howarth9 Sam Pinder1 Andrew Kelly2 Simon Gunn3 Euan Murray4 Joe Beardshaw5 Nathan Ross6 Andrew Wilson7 Donnie Macfadyen8 Rory McKayReplacement:16 Scott Lawson17 Matthew Proudfoot18 Andrew Hall19 Mark Sitch20 Graeme Beveridge21 Gareth Maclure22 Stuart MoffatRory McKay will make his first start for Glasgow for nearly a year when the Celtic League campaign continues with the match against Munster tomorrow at Hughenden.His last starting appearance was in the 23-10 win against The Borders in the final match of last season.
