Upfront, Springbok loose forward Arno Botha returns to the starting line-up in place of Cyle Brink, who will start on the bench this weekend.

There are a few changes at the back too - James Verity-Amm earns a place in the starting XV at wing, with Canan Moodie starting at fullback in place of Kurt-Lee Arendse, who has been ruled out with a thumb injury.

The Vodacom Bulls will also start with a new halfback pairing in Zak Burger and Morne Steyn, with Embrose Papier and Chris Smith on the bench, where they are joined by Harold Vorster, who returns from injury.

“We have a tough task ahead of us this Friday,” said Vodacom Bulls Director of Rugby, Jake White.

“Despite their defeat to the DHL Stormers last week, Glasgow Warriors are a formidable side that we expect will bring a huge challenge for us. They are a well-coached group with a number of highly talented internationals in their squad. We will need to be alert and be at our best for the entire 80 minutes.”

The match kicks off at 19h00 and will be broadcast live on SuperSport.
