Glasgow v Leinster
BBC Alba, 7.35pm Friday
Leinster beat Glasgow 34-18 at Scotstoun in the Champions Cup two weeks ago, but back the Warriors to give up a small handicap in gaining Pro14 revenge.
The Warriors top Conference A with seven wins out of seven and they have claimed the four-try bonus point on five occasions too, including at the Cheetahs where Leinster lost 38-19.
That Bloemfontein defeat is Leinster’s sole reverse of the season but Saturday’s excellent win at Ulster was a forthright inter-provincial clash. By contrast, Glasgow sauntered home against Conference B basement boys the Southern Kings last Friday.
The Warriors bring back 11 international-quality players into their starting team, whereas Conor O’Brien makes his debut in the Leinster midfield and there is a whole new away front-row.
Conference B leaders Scarlets are clearly not expected to ease off the gas against Treviso and full-back Johnny McNicholl looks a great price for a try.
Kiwi McNicholl was prolific for the Crusaders and Canterbury before his switch to Parc y Scarlets, since which he has ten tries in 27 outings.
The Benetton boys get a 22-point start in west Wales, while Munster give up 23 points to the Dragons in Cork.
In Yokohoma tomorrow, Japan get a 28-point start from Australia.The Wallabies are reshuffled from last week’s win over the All Blacks but the Brave Blossoms have lost six of their last seven Tests.
