Brown is
once again flanked by Oli Kebble and Zander Fagerson in the front-row, the trio
having impressed in the loose as well as the set-piece last weekend.

Richie Gray
and Scott Cummings continue together in the second-row, following the Scotland
pair’s disruptive showing at the lineout last time out.

The only
change to the pack sees Tom Gordon promoted from the bench to start at
openside, a move that sees Matt Fagerson shift across to number eight and Ryan
Wilson named on the blindside.

Behind the
scrum, George Horne is handed the number nine jersey after coming off the bench
last Saturday, with Adam Hastings continuing at fly-half.

Nick Grigg
retains his spot at outside centre, whilst Stafford McDowall comes into the
side to start in the number 12 shirt.

back-three remains unchanged, as Ratu Tagive and Tommy Seymour start on either
side of full-back Huw Jones.

A brace of
props are in line to make their Glasgow Warriors debuts from the bench, as Charlie
Capps and summer arrival Enrique Pieretto are named in a matchday 23 for the
first time.

Turner continues as the replacement hooker, whilst Rob Harley and Chris Fusaro
bring the experience of over 400 combined appearances to cover the back-five of
the scrum.

Ali Price
rotates to the bench after starting last weekend, as does try-scorer Pete

Rounding out
the replacements is former Scotland U20 winger Robbie Nairn, who is named in a
Glasgow Warriors matchday squad for the first time since the first match of the
2019/20 season away to the Cheetahs.

Speaking to, Wilson said: “We wanted to give an opportunity to a few
boys we think deserve their shot based on their efforts in training over the
last couple of weeks.

“We’ve got
one eye on the start of the new season and we know that squad depth is going to
be tested more than ever, so it’s another chance for us to look at certain
players and combinations.

“At the same
time, though, it’s all about continuing to gel and grow as a squad, and we’re
looking to build some momentum before the beginning of next season.

excited to see how Stafford goes in the centre – he’s a young man with a highly
impressive skillset, and he’s a major asset to our squad.

“Tom and
George both come into the starting XV and they’re both keen to get going from
the first whistle this week.

worked on a few things we learned from last week, and we’re excited to get back
out at BT Murrayfield once again this weekend.”
