Glasgow coach Scott Lineen will start new boys scrum-half Chris Cusiter, centre Peter Murchie and wing Rob Dewey against Munster for Friday's Magners League opener at Firhill.

Lineen said: "Chris has made a huge impact since he arrived here over the summer. I can't wait to see him perform in the Magners League.

"Rob has shown his scoring potential already and you can see the quality left out of the team as a result, with Hefin O'Hare and DTH van der Merwe challenging for a starting place.

"Peter Murchie is a classic case of a guy taking his chance. He is still learning but his work ethic is first-class and I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do against Munster."

GLASGOW (v Munster):

15 Bernardo Stortoni; 14 Rob Dewey, 13 Peter Murchie, 12 Graeme Morrison, 11 Thom Evans; 10 Dan Parks, 9 Chris Cusiter; 8 Johnnie Beattie, 7 John Barclay, 6 Kelly Brown, 5 Alastair Kellock (c), 4 Tim Barker, 3 Moray Low, 2 Dougie Hall, 1 Jon Welsh.
