The Ireland international has shaken off a hamstring injury to start at full-back at Glasgow tomorrow in what will be his first game since April.

Louis Ludik is also fit to start on the wing with Rory Best skippering the side from hooker.

Flanker Nick Timoney wins his 50th cap while Darren Cave will join Andrew Trimble as the northern province's highest appearance maker if brought off the bench.
