Flanker James Eddie and winger Lome Fa’atau will return to the Glasgow Warriors starting line-up for Friday night’s Magners League clash with Munster at Firhill (kick-off 7:45pm).

Samoan flyer Fa’atau has made a return to full training this week having recovered sufficiently from a shin bone injury which has ruled him out of front-line action for three and a half months.

Warriors coach, Sean Lineen, said: “There’s no better game to focus the mind than facing the current Magners League leaders and the European champions at home.

“It’s a massive opportunity to get back to winning ways at home and the supporters will play a huge part in helping them achieve that.”
