Price starts against Cheetahs in Bloemfontein

Ali Price starts for Glasgow Warriors as they name another settled side to face the Toyota Cheetahs.

Live on FreeSports, the Warriors will be looking to replicate their Bloemfontein performance from last season, taking all five points from their Conference A rivals in a thrilling 29-26 victory.

Scrum-half Price starts for the first time this season, as do Alex Dunbar and Ruaridh Jackson. All three are brought into the starting XV.

Adam Hastings starts at fly-half following his Man of the Match performance against Munster at Scotsotun last Friday.

Pete Horne is Dunbar’s partner in midfield and DTH van der Merwe and Tommy Seymour complete the back-three.

There is just one change to the pack that played so well against Munster, Scott Cummings starting in the engine room with Rob Harley moving to the blindside flank.

Oli Kebble starts in the country of his birth, with Fraser Brown and Zander Fagerson joining him in the front-row.

Jonny Gray is Cummings’ partner in the second-row while Callum Gibbins and Adam Ashe complete the pack.

On the bench, Huw Jones is fit to play and named in a Glasgow 23 for the first time since April.

Glasgow Warriors Head Coach Dave Rennie said: “We’ve trained well and adjusted to the altitude this week.

“What we know is the Cheetahs are a different proposition at home as everyone in the Guinness PRO14 found out last season.

“Franco Smith is an experienced and innovative coach and we’re looking forward to testing ourselves against his side tomorrow.”
