Barrow Returns After Four Months' Absence

Scott Barrow returns to Glasgow's team tomorrow evening after nearly four months" absence. Glasgow have recalled him at inside centre in a recast threequarter line for the Celtic League match against Neath Swansea Ospreys at Hughenden.Ironically, Barrow's last match for Glasgow was against Ospreys. But in the midweek after that game in early October he suffered shoulder damage in training, an injury that subsequently required surgery.Hugh Campbell, Glasgow's head coach, welcomed Barrow's return. "He's a quality player," the coach commented. "It's a great opportunity to get him involved in a game like this against Ospreys, who are at the top of the league."Barrow's return is timely as another of Glasgow's centres, Andy Craig, is among five players not available tomorrow because of Scotland's opening RBS Six Nations Championship match against France in Paris a week tomorrow. The four others resting before Paris duty are Sean Lamont, Dan Parks, Gordon Bulloch, Scotland's captain, and Jon Petrie.In all, five changes, one positional, have been made in the team who started the Rodney Parade match that Glasgow lost to Newport Gwent Dragons last Saturday. Two of the personnel changes are in the threequarters. Graeme Morrison, promoted from the replacements" bench, returns as outside centre, and Kenny Logan switches from full back to wing in place of David Millard. Glasgow Hawks" Colin Shaw returns at full back.Calvin Howarth, who missed the Newport match because of a back strain, takes over from Parks at stand-off, and Scott Lawson replaces Bulloch as hooker. Lawson's recall is the only change in the pack, with Shaw's fellow Hawk, Steve Swindall, remaining at blind side. Lawson and Shaw played against Dragons as replacements last week.Cammy Mather, Glasgow's captain last season, will lead the team in the absence of Petrie and Bulloch.Andy Hall, a replacement for Glasgow tomorrow, is on the verge of reaching the previously unattained milestone of 50 Celtic League games. His substitute appearance against Dragons was his forty-ninth league match. But he looks like being only second to the half-century as another Andrew, Millward, who also had had 49 league appearances, will be starting for Ospreys in the Hughenden match.Because of international calls and injuries Glasgow have had to draw on four club players. As well as Shaw and Swindall in the starting XV, Ben Prescott, the Aberdeen prop, is on the bench, as is A J McFarlane, GHA's Scotland under-21 scrum half.Tomorrow's match will kick off at 7.45pm.
