DTH wants to make his mark

DTH van der Merwe is on the bench for Glasgow's trip to Cardiff
DTH van der Merwe is hoping he can fly under the Cardiff Blues radar to mark his Glasgow Warriors debut with a try in Wales tomorrow.

DTH has been sidelined after suffering successive dead legs and the flu, but will be on the Glasgow bench at the Cardiff Stadium as he looks to help Glasgow end a two game losing streak.

DTH told the Evening Times: "I can't wait to make my debut as it has been so frustrating sitting in the stands since I got here. With a bit of luck the fact I have a deceptive running style because my centre of gravity is so low will help me fly under the Blues' radar and hopefully I can deliver a try on my first appearance in a Glasgow shirt.

"But there is more to my game than pace. I love the contact and that has maybe been a problem in the backs for us on a couple of occasions this season so hopefully I can make a difference offensively and defensively. But I can't wait to get started."
