Eary bird and all that...

What: Glasgow vs Ulster
Where: Scotstoun Stadium
When: Friday night, 19:35 KO

With both teams suffering huge disappointment in Europe this weekend Friday night may very well be make or break time for both teams. With three games left this season, in playoff watch, the runners and riders are.
Conference A
Glasgow 66
Munster 63
Connacht 52
Cardiff 52
Ospreys 44

Conference B
Leinster 72
Ulster 54
Treviso 50
Edinburgh 47
Scarlets 45

Eyes will also be on other games as elsewhere Munster vs Cardiff at the same time as this one plus Edinburgh vs Scarlets on Saturday night.

I think with Munster now in a Heineken SF Glasgow have to be favourites to top the pool. Munster will lose at least one of the Cardiff or Treviso games imo. Personally I hope Ulster send over a full strength side and go hell for leather. Not because I dislike Glasgow or anything but a win here and a win against Leinster (I think they’ll send the kids) and we are sorted

If Glasgow could work out how to put a competent 80 minute performance together for this one that would be super! Hug

Hard to know how both sides are going to react to this one.

Ulster played brilliantly and suffered an agonising loss, Glasgow did not turn up and were pretty humiliated.

Both sides with plenty to prove this weekend and it might come down to which side has put themselves back together again, both mentally and physically.

I can assure you Ulster will most definitely be up for this

Best will be missing and almost certainly Cave but Herring and Marshall will not weaken the team.
As far as I am aware the rest of the team came through unscathed.
They will want to go full tilt for this one

These players have played very little in the last month - only Stockdale played in the last 6N game and many were rested against
Kings. With a break after Edinburgh no reason to be anything but full on for our two games in Scotland

Ulster can get a home QF so they've got plenty to play for. Conversly if they lose a few games they could find themselves scrapping for 3rd or 4th place.

Lots to play for in Conference B certainly.

If Ulster win they may well end up securing a play off spot depending on other results

I think Ulster be trying to maintain momentum and target this for a much needed win.
As many of saturday's 1stXV must be on the team sheet for this. Tails are up, lets keep it that way. A win in Glasgow could set us up nicely for a tilt at Edinburgh where even a losing bonus point would be a decent result.
The negative part of me fully realizes that the trips to Scotland over the next fortnight could end without a single point but you can't help but feel very positive after Saturday. Someone has to be on the receiving end of an Ulster backlash at some stage and with respect I do hope it's the Weegies at the weekend.

I think we’d like a backlash of our own if that’s okay since we just got pumped by Saracens.

Losses like the one against Leinster can go either way for a team. It could inspire them to greater things or they could have a bit of a come back down to earth, as they clearly emptied the tank and played way above what anyone thought they would do.

Glasgow will just be plain embarrassed by their performance, I am not even sure it took so much out of them physically, we were so far behind most of the game. They certainly owe their fans a performance after that, but once the wheels come off the wagon, it can be very hard to get them back on.

Lots of confidence coming from Ulster fans after their team's excellent performance at the weekend. That aside, we are still heavy favourites with the bookies, this is a home game and one we absolutely must win. We've not beaten Ulster in a couple attempts now and that's not even mentioning the battle for a home semi with Munster.

If we do conspire to lose this, I think our season may very well be over as I don't know how we manage to claw back any momentum before the play-offs start. If that is indeed transpires I think there will be a genuine move within our fanbase for terminating Dave Rennie's contract early.

Glasgow lost heavily against Saracens because their heads went down. When things started to unravel they lost their structure and Saracens aren't a merciful team.
Ulster lost narrowly to Leinster because there were World Cup statements to be made on top of the normal inter-pro rivalry on top of the big knock-out quarter final. If they had been away to Saracens they might have lost just as heavily as Warriors.
Glasgow will have a lot more left in the tank to cope with the six day turnaround and have a deeper squad anyway - is Swinson out? The game against Ulster is now a statement game for them, not just to their fans but also to Leinster who could be their hardest challengers. They will want to beat Ulster comfortably just to show their pedigree.
For Ulster the loss of experienced guys like Best, Coetzee and Cave is massive in the so-called championship minutes. Cave missing especially means that Ulster now have no experienced centre cover to call upon. Also while it is great to see the young guys getting the experience in Dublin, they do not have the same resilience as older hands to bounce back.
Glasgow 35, Ulster 19.

Swinson will definitely be out, looked like s bad one. Season ending I would say.

Cummings got confused as well, which leaves us z little light on locks. JG and Harley to start, maybe Tevita on the bench to cover second and back row.

I doubt Cummings will get back on a 6 day turnaround.

McCloskey and Marshall to start - who 'covers' them if they get injured?

McCloskey has already made 22 appearances (19 full games) and Marshall has had just 17 minutes to get match fit - three intense season defining League games to come is a big ask for both, all in the hope they can get at least one more meaningful game!

Whilst mccloskey has played a lot of rugby I agree he had three weeks without a game in March and we are going to have to hope he can manage the next two weeks before the next break. Not ideal I hear you. Depending on how long cave is out Marshall should be fine though. Moore may have to be thrown in and 15 is a worry. The good news is Henderson, Murphy and Coetzee havent had too many games recently. I think we are just going to have to overuse O’Sullivan, Moore, McCloskey etc and hope our luck holds on the injury front.

McCloskey has only played 2 games in 5 weeks he is fine.
Marshall showed he can hit the ground running.
We have a break between Edinburgh and Leinster
Some currently injured players may well return
Moore will cover centre

I have seen no indication Coetzee will not make Friday
Herring is currently Irelands third choice hooker, he will not and did not, on Saturday, let us down
Lowry starts at 15 with Nelson as cover, Gilroy could make the end of the season

Ulster fans, out of curiosity how many Glasgow players would you take on to consider them improvements to your first XV.

The reason I ask is that I would imagine it would not be too many, as Glasgow probably has the second best full squad in the league behind Leinster but probably not anywhere near the best first XV.

Not sure Glasgow. They’ve gone under the radar a bit this season albeit that’s mad given they are top of the conference and made the QFs. Jonny Gray obviously. You’re bound to have some decent backrowers I can’t name. Hastings looks bloody useful. I know that sounds like I’m not taking many but it’s more through my own ignorance in truth.

I'd agree with Gray but he's looked a bit off colour this season imo. I'd take Hogg in a heartbeat. And Hastings does look useful too.

Hastings actually was one of the few players for Glasgow to play a half decent game on saturday, he is not fast, but does seem to manage to glide into space. He definitely justified his selection over Pete Horne.

Hoggy owes us a game this weekend, he made to many mistakes, which cost us, despite making two of our tries.

I expect we will see a few changes for this game. It would be nice if Seymour got back. Probably to early for Jones and Wilson though.

Hastings reminds me of Carberry a few years ago, think he'll turn into a quality player he's still inconsistent but oozes confidence

Jonny Gray and maybe Ryan Wilson would be great additions for Ulster I think

Thinking about it more I can see what you're saying - Glasgow are top of the league in large part due to how well they have done in the international breaks. Conversely, Edinburgh for example are where they are becasue we've been rubbish without our first choice.

it is all relative I suppose - Glasgow's B team is better than most other teams' B teams, but your A team would be a few names further down the list (particularly in the pack). Ultimately come playoff time I think home advantage will make a big difference, and that's where Glasgow could really benefit (thanks to their B team).

I don't think it's a bold claim at all and its easily referenced. We have excellent depth and but it does mean there really isn't a lot between a first XV and a second XV It should be said that we are a bit light in the second row these days as we've let both Brian and Peterson go halfway through the season for reasons that still are beyond my understanding. We also saw fit to let international standard centre Alex Dunbar go down to Newcastle because our back-up centres are so good they were keeping him out the team.

It can also be seen in the higher quality of players going east on the M8 to bolster Edinburgh's squad than come the other way (Remember, Turner got better after he came to Glasgow). Perfectly serviceable club players like Weir, Pyrgos and Bennett into shadows of their former selves like some sort of reverse midas touch with salt and sauce on top.

Glasgow tweeted out their usual picture of the team training today for the Ulster game, which often gives a little hint about who might be playing.

Interestingly Huw Jones and Ryan Wilson were both featured in the photos and both looked like they were taking a full part, no non-contact bibs in situ.

That would be a fantastic pick up for us if we were to get the two of them back at this stage in the season. Two positions we are just a little bit light in.

Seymour was in such poor form and Hughes had a bit of a mare so would fancy seeing what Nairn can do starting on the wing. He has a chance to be the future on one wing for the next 8-10 seasons and it makes sense to give him a chance with the starters.

Could we see Sykes or Hodgson on the bench from the academy?

Has Ashe done something reprehensible on the pitch or gotten injured? M Fagerson with Ashe at 6 has been an effective combination and now he can't even get into the 23. Stewart as well did not bench and I don't think was on the injury report against Sarries. Is there an attitude issue or something? With Ashe at six, Wilson can bench and have 20-30 minutes on his comeback

Otherwise it is as solid as we can get. I would be tempted to put Thomson on the bench to cover 10/15 and have McDowall as the 23 with H Jones the wing cover, but ultimately P Horne is going to get the 22 spot.

Jonny Gray will play his 100th game for Glasgow this Friday as the Warriors welcome Ulster to a sold-out Scotstoun Stadium.

The 25-year-old made his debut back in December 2012 in a PRO12 victory over Edinburgh before signing his first professional contract the following summer.

He made his Scotland debut in November 2013 and has since gone on to surpass 50 test matches for his country.

The former club captain was instrumental in Glasgow’s 2014/15 PRO12 title-winning campaign and will be hoping to help his side take one step towards their first final since then, by marking his century with victory tomorrow night.

Tommy Seymour returns to the starting XV having recovered from a rib injury picked up playing for Scotland. He joins fellow centurions Stuart Hogg and Niko Matawalu in the back-three.

Kyle Steyn shifts from wing to centre to play alongside Sam Johnson in midfield. Ali Price and Adam Hastings once again start as half-backs.

Rob Harley partners Gray in the engine room. Adam Ashe and Chris Fusaro are promoted to the starting line up to play with Matt Fagerson in the back-row.

It is an unchanged front three for the third consecutive game. Oli Kebble and Zander Fagerson once again packing down either side of Fraser Brown.

USA international Tevita Tameilau is included amongst the replacements for the first time since scoring against Cardiff Blues in February and representing his country four times in the Americas Rugby Championship.

Tim Swinson sustained an ankle injury against Saracens last Saturday, although not as serious as first anticipated the second-row is still expected to miss the remainder on the season.

Glasgow Warriors Head Coach Dave Rennie said: “It’ll be a great occasion for Jonny and his family. To have played 100 games for your club and 50 for your country by the age of 25 is unheard of and a testament to Jonny and his work ethic.

“Historically these games have been tasty and it’s great that we’re going to have a packed, noisy stadium at our backs to carry us through. Everyone knows what’s at stake.

“It’s the business end of the season now and we’ve got ourselves in a pretty decent spot but the real fight starts now and the boys are certainly up for it.”

Clearly just a little bit to soon for Shuggy and RW, but still, not a bad team to get out.

Cummings makes it back to the bench after his concussion and Tommy Seymour comes back in. Rory Hughes predictably, pays for his poor game last weekend.

Probably about the best team we could get out, so should be reasonably happy.

Ulster are targeting this - other than Henderson that is very close to being as strong as it could be

Looks like it could be a cracking game then, both sides full on.

This is our season right here. Dave Rennie has named the strongest team we could possibly get on the park - lose this and I can't see us making the final, win and its game on.

You’re bound to have some decent backrowers I can’t name. Hastings looks bloody useful. I know that sounds like I’m not taking many but it’s more through my own ignorance in truth.

The reason you can't name them is because they don't exisit. The Glasgow backrow is average at best and even the God-like Ryan Wilson is a poor man's 6/8/7

In fairness I forgot Hogg ffs.

I’ve been looking at the Munster team and although they’ve gone strong this week if they rest guys ahead of the semi final they will lose in treviso so I think you’ve another bite at it.

From Ulster Rugby:
"John Andrew, Andy Warwick and Tom O’Toole will cover the front row on the bench, with Ian Nagle and Matthew Rea named as the additional forward replacements. David Shanahan, Darren Cave and Angus Kernohan will provide the backline options."

... but then they go an spoil it all by saying something stupid like 'Marcus' in their 1-23 lineup!

Eejit wrote:Ulster fans, out of curiosity how many Glasgow players would you take on to consider them improvements to your first XV.

The reason I ask is that I would imagine it would not be too many, as Glasgow probably has the second best full squad in the league behind Leinster but probably not anywhere near the best first XV.

Interesting question. Hogg over Lowry, Seymour over Lyttle, Gray over Treadwell, Brown over Herring. Possibly Hastings as well?

The Leinster game, I’ll say in all honestly, probably has me thinking some of our guys are better than they actually are. But Ulster players I would definitely take over their Glasgow counterparts – Stockdale, Cooney, McCloskey, Coetzee, Marshall, O’Sullivan.

Huge game for both sides.

I like the balance of the Glasgow team. On paper, the Ulster scrum is not devastating and Harley is much more effective at lock. The back row has a bigger carrier to support M Fagerson with two tackle monsters at lock. Losing Gibbins is a pain and guessing Brown or Fagerson will cover Fusaro.

Ulster's pack is looking much more effective than previous seasons. If Henderson was there instead of O'Connor, that back five would be pretty scary. The backline has always had class and McCloskey, to me, is unlucky not to have more caps for Ireland.

Had a peak on the Ulster forums. Good to see that its not just the Glasgow Warriors forum that is full of complete muppets. Honestly, you speak to people face-to-face and most are really friendly, but put people behind a computer and the inner Mr Winklechops really comes out.

Hah I didn’t notice that. The swear filter on this forum is completely ridiculous.
