Scotland internationals return for Glasgow

Stuart Hogg's try helped Scotland to a comeback win
Glasgow Warriors welcome back a further six Scotland internationals to their squad as they take on the reigning Champions Scarlets in the Guinness PRO14 tomorrow afternoon, live on Sky Sports.

Glasgow ran in ten tries in their last outing against Zebre with four players who played for Scotland in their final NatWest 6 Nations against Italy featuring at Scotstoun.

Head Coach Dave Rennie has selected six more internationals knowing that victory will guarantee his side top spot in Conference A and a home semi-final.

Stuart Hogg and Tommy Seymour rerun to the back three, joining DTH Van Der Merwe who scored two tries against Zebre, his first game since re-joining the club from Newcastle.

Ali Price and Finn Russell are the starting half backs, while Sam Johnson and Nick Grigg combine in midfield.

Captain Ryan Wilson starts alongside Callum Gibbins and Robert Harley in the back-row.

In front of them, Jonny Gray partners with Tim Swinson and Oli Kebble and Zander Fagerson pack down either side of George Turner.

Dave Rennie said: "We've had a good week training. It has been great to have the rest of the Scotland boys back in refreshed following a positive 6 Nations.

"Scarlets lead the comp in turnover tries so we know how dangerous they can be. Ball security will be key.
