Glasgow wary of Munster backlash

Richard McKnight of Hawks has been called into the Glasgow squad for Friday's match.
Glasgow are preparing to play Munster in a Celtic Cup quarter-final match at Hughenden on Friday night (ko 7.30pm).

Team facilitator Dougie Mills admits the Irishmen will be in a determined mood after two straight losses to Welsh opposition.

"I haven't seen the Ospreys match yet, but you could say they haven't done us any favours at all," he said. "They're going to be very tough opposition, but I'm sure the boys will be put through their paces this week and they're looking forward to it.

"We're looking quite good as far as injuries are concerned, so we'll go into the match at full-strength, apart from the Cup players."

Glasgow are coming off a disappointing home loss to Connacht, and Mills admitted the performance will have to be raised several levels to compete with the likes of Munster.

"We didn't perform well at all," he said. "Now it's matter of regrouping and moving on to the next game."

Scrum half Richard McKnight of Glasgow Hawks has been called into the Glasgow squad for the match with Munster on Friday.

Following a European Rugby Cup meeting in Dublin this week the Montpellier v Glasgow game was confirmed for 6 December at Stade Sabathé. The kick-off will be at 7.30pm French time.

Glasgow and Montpellier will meet again in the return match at Hughenden six days later on Friday 12 December. That game, too, will kick off at 7.30.

A change has been made to the date for Glasgow's Celtic League match against Celtic Warriors next month at Brewery Field, Bridgend. The game will now be played on Friday 7 November (ko 7.15pm) instead of the following afternoon, as had originally been arranged.
