Glasgow to be without Parks

Glasgow will be without out-half Dan Parks when they become the first club to test out the newly removated Thomond Park for their Magners League clash with Munster on Saturday.

Glasgow will be without out-half Dan Parks when they become the first club to test out the newly removated Thomond Park for their Magners League clash with Munster on Saturday.

Parks is sidelined with a knee injury, meaning Colin Gregor will play at 10. Andrew Henderson comes in for Graeme Morrison at inside centre in an international-for-international swap.

"It's always interesting to see how both sets of players and the referee react when the crowd get the noise levels up - it's going to be a full house, it's going to be unbelievably noisy, so they have got to make sure they're switched on," said coach Sean Lineen.

"If Munster get some momentum they are very difficult to beat, they have quality players and they are very strong so we have to make sure we look after the ball, tackle hard and make sure we're not intimidated."

GLASGOW (v Munster): Bernardo Stortoni; Lome Fa'atau, Max Evans, Andrew Henderson, Thom Evans; Colin Gregor, Mark McMillan; Justin Va'a, Dougie Hall, Moray Low; Opeta Palepoi, Alastair Kellock (capt); Kelly Brown, John Barclay, John Beattie.

Replacements: Kevin Tkachuk, Ed Kalman, Tim Barker, Stevie Swindall, Ruaridh Jackson, Graeme Morrison, Hefin O'Hare.
