Glasgow team for PRO14 Final

Callum Gibbins will lead Glasgow into Saturday's PRO14 Final
Dave Rennie has named an unchanged starting XV for the Guinness PRO14 Final at Celtic Park.

Over 43,000 tickets have already been sold for tomorrow's game and sales are closing in on the PRO14 record of 46,092.

Rennie has stuck with the side that beat Ulster 50-20 at Scotstoun in the semi-final last Friday, the inclusion of Siua Halanukonuka on the bench the only change to the matchday 23.

Stuart Hogg will play his last game for the club, starting in a back-three with DTH van der Merwe who has scored in his two previous appearances in PRO14 finals and Tommy Seymour who scored a brace of tries against Ulster seven days ago.

Sam Johnson and Kyle Steyn start outside of Ali Price and Adam Hastings, Steyn and Price also both crossed the whitewash last Friday.

It's a full Scotland international front-row, Jamie Bhatti and Zander Fagerson starting either side of Fraser Brown.

Scott Cummings and Jonny Gray pack down together again in the second-row, while in the back-row Robert Harley and Matt Fagerson start alongside captain Callum Gibbins.

Peter Horne's inclusion on the bench makes it eight players in the squad who featured in Glasgow's successful 2015 Final in Belfast.

Head Coach Rennie, said: "We're excited to represent our City and our families at what is going to be an amazing occasion for Glasgow.

"The noise that 10,000 people make in Scotstoun is deafening, so to play in front of more than 40,000 of our supporters is going to be a special experience.

"Leinster are a world class side with hardened finals experience, so we're going to have to play better than we have all season to lift the trophy."
