Warriors in Premiership action

Tjiuee Uanivi returns to action with Glasgow Hawks
Eight Glasgow Warriors players will feature in the BT Premiership this weekend as the hunt to reach the play-offs and avoid relegation continues.

Nambian international Tjiuee Uanivi makes his return from injury following five months on the side-lines having injued his shoulder playing for the Warriors against Ulster in September.

He lines up for Glasgow Hawks in their top of the table clash at home to Ayr, with fellow Warriors Junior Bulumakau and Matt Smith also involved for the Old Anniesland side.

Hagen Schulte could also feature for Hawks, subject to game time on Friday night and the same goes for James Malcolm who could face off against his Warriors teammates, pulling on the pink and black.

An Ayr victory would cement them a home semi-final, however should the Hawks make the most of their home advantage they will make significant ground on their rivals with just one game to play.

Warriors fans can get a glimpse of new short term signing Brandon Thomson this weekend as Stirling County travel to Watsonians.

Having arrived from Super Rugby side the Stormers this week, Brandon will get his first taste of the Scottish game alongside Fiji international Nemia Kenatale.

With fourth placed Heriotís hosting league leaders Melrose, there could be an opportunity for fifth placed Currie to jump into the play-off places with a win.

Ratu Tagive is included in their side to face Boroughmuir.
