The old cliché of 'the must win game' for Glasgow. Though not strictly true it would be very hard to imagine us winning away in both Montpellier and Dublin, so you would have to say we need to win this to progress.

In that though, nothing much has changed, as this was a game we were always going to have to win and it is undoubtedly winnable, Leinster as a side don't seem to have fired on all cylinders yet either and have also got their injury issues.

I would expect a few gentle changes to the side for this weekend. It has been strongly hinted that Hoggy will be back and it would not surprise me to see Sarto playing as well, he was the unlucky one to miss out last time. Niko's mistake may have played him off the bench though. The centre combos did not quite seem right either and Grigg did not have his best day ball in hand, maybe Johnson starts this time at 13.

Up front you would imagine Brown is out, so Turner will start and McArthur to bench. Otherwise, baring injuries, I don't see to many changes, maybe Fagerson to bench for a bit of x factor laster on in the game.

I was wondering if we'll see Big Brian replace Swinson for extra grunt in the pack - Swinson has played most games this season too so it would freshen things up a bit.

There is indeed. How many of your walking wounded are we likely to see back for this one?

There are reports of SOB, Sexton, Isa and Fardy being available for this weekend. Hopefully that's true, they're badly needed

For a moment I thought Facundo Isa had signed for you!

What sort of team are Leinster expected to put out? Is Isa in the starting 15?

He has been starting at 12 this season and has been very good there but has spent most of this season injured.

With everyone available I'd like to see:
1. McGrath
2. Cronin
3. Furlong
4. Toner
5. Fardy
6. SOB
7. Van De Flier
8. Conan
9. McGrath
10. Sexton
11. Daly
12. Nacewa
13. Henshaw
14. Byrne
15. Carbery

That pack is scary. The back row in particular. The backs are good but I would back Glasgow to have an advantage there.

What happened to the young 12 (Reid?)? Has he not kicked on?

Reid is liability in defense.

Leinster have some serious talent right now though, there is a real youthfulness about their team.

Looks like the weather may well have a say in this game, rain and wind forecast all afternoon in Glasgow.

Not the conditions Glasgow would have preferred, but it won't make it easy for either side.

BBC has it dry with light rain starting at 9pm, getting heavier throughout the night.

Being Glasgow though anything could happen and it will probably change several times between now and kickoff!

To be fair, other than Sexton, Henshaw and perhaps Carbery you couldn't say that the backline was overly deadly, with the wingers not nearly as good as Glasgow's options.

Glasgow are going to have a real examination in the set piece though and (as always) that is likely where the game will be won and lost.

Glasgow should pray for good weather, they could really go after that Leinster backline

Leinster need another centre back from injury. Reid at 12 is worrying. Himself and Carberry are weak links defensively. Not much fear of the wingers. Mcfadden is better than he is given credit for and Daly is allegedly the quickest player in the country.

He'll have his hands full with Henshaw. Our back three is superb, with Lee Jones waiting to come on too. Very Happy
We need 5 points though, and an Exeter win. That would make me happy.

The usual non late hits from Glasgow. Looks like Leinster have decided to adopt Glasgow’s motto - Whatever It Takes - and respond in kind.

A few more handbags in the second half and a card for someone I’m going to guess.

Impressive try from Glasgow - went through a lot of phases there and gradually worked their way up the pitch.

Game on?

Easy missed tackle from Sexton but excellent commitment to track back, make the tackle and force the knock on.

I swear that Sexton will dislocate his shoulder one day. The way he throws his arms in the air appealing for everything must take its toll one day...

Consistently getting tackled without he ball week in week out takes its toll too.
