Jon Petrie Equals Glasgow Record

Jon Petrie will equal Alan Bulloch's record of 124 appearances for Glasgow when he leads the team in the Celtic League's inter-city duel against Edinburgh at Meadowbank tomorrow evening. The outright record will surely follow a week later in Glasgow's final league match of the season, the Hughenden game against Neath/Swansea Ospreys.Petrie missed the defeat by Llanelli Scarlets at Wrexham last Saturday, but the Scotland forward now returns as captain at No.8, with Paul Dearlove switching to the blind-side flank in place of Andrew Wilson. Petrie's fellow cap, Dan Parks, deputised as captain in the Wrexham game in which Glasgow matched Llanelli's four tries in taking a bonus point from a 26-36 loss.Graeme Morrison also returns, taking over at outside centre from David Millard, who scored Glasgow's vital fourth try last week. But three of Glasgow's four props - Euan Murray, Andrew Kelly, and Lee Harrison - are unavailable for the Meadowbank game because of injuries. Kelly was the most recent casualty with a deep gash below his right knee during the second half of the Wrexham match.Glasgow have called up two props from club rugby. Ben Prescott, the Aberdeen Grammar School FP prop who played as a replacement last week, will be at loose head in place of Kelly, and Glasgow Hawks" Eric Milligan will be the back-up on the bench. Prescott will be making his first start for Glasgow, though he has appeared four times as a replacement since 2001, and Milligan was in Glasgow's nominated European squad for the Parker Pen Challenge Cup competition, though not required for any of the four matches. It is hoped that Murray, who has a thigh injury, and Kelly will be fit for the match against Ospreys next week.Rory Kerr is not available for the Meadowbank match because of a head knock early in the Wrexham match. His replacement there, Glenn Metcalfe, remains on the right wing.Tomorrow's match will kick off at 7.30pm.
