Glasgow Warriors winger, Hefin O"Hare, has been given another opportunity to impress this weekend as he is once again selected in the starting XV for Friday (23 November) night's Magners League clash against Cardiff Blues at Firhill Arena (kick-off 7:30pm).

With electrifying performances off the bench and a try scoring outing last Friday in the Heineken Cup against Viadana, O"Hare is given the nod ahead of new Samoan winger Lome Fa"atau who drops out of the 22 altogether.

Glasgow Warriors winger, Hefin O"Hare, has been given another opportunity to impress this weekend as he is once again selected in the starting XV for Friday (23 November) night's Magners League clash against Cardiff Blues at Firhill Arena (kick-off 7:30pm).

With electrifying performances off the bench and a try scoring outing last Friday in the Heineken Cup against Viadana, O"Hare is given the nod ahead of new Samoan winger Lome Fa"atau who drops out of the 22 altogether.

Elsewhere in the back-line, Andrew Henderson and Daryl Gibson return in the centres whilst Thom Evans is re-instated on the left wing having recovered from injury.

The only change in the forwards pack sees the only member of the Warriors" squad to have lifted both the Celtic League (now Magners League) trophy and the Heineken Cup, Andy Newman, back into the fray.

On O'Hare being handed the wing berth in place of Lome Fa'atau,_Warriors_assistant coach, Shade Munro, said: "Hefin is the form player at the moment. Lome hasn't performed to his full potential yet because_I think he's just taking time to settle in. However,_he has taken the news positively and he's trained very well all week."

Warriors defence coach, Gary Mercer, added: "We've got real pride in our home record, so we need to_keep Cardiff out."
