Glasgow v Munster live stream: How to watch from anywhere
An unusual preparation for Munster, who fly in and out on the day for tonight’s Guinness Pro14 match away to Glasgow (8.15pm). When they did likewise in 2016, they lost 27-24. But the Irish province are in a good place, leading Conference B with five wins out of five.
Munster make four changes to the side that beat Ospreys 38-22 eight days ago. Billy Holland captains the side as he joins Jean Kleyn in the second row. Fineen Wycherley switches to the back row, with Jack O’Sullivan starting on the openside for the first time. Gavin Coombes, a hat-trick scorer against Ospreys, continues at No 8.
Ben Healy returns to the ten jersey while Calvin Nash starts on the wing. JJ Hanrahan is on the bench and will make his 100th Pro14 appearance if introduced. And hooker Rhys Marshall is also a replacement after recovering from a recent thigh injury.
Asked about the form of fly-halves Healy and Hanrahan, senior coach Stephen Larkham told the Munster website: “I’m very happy with the way they are controlling the game. They’ve both got a really good skill-set.
“We’re definitely moving towards a system where they’re taking full control of the team once you’re on the field. I think Ben and JJ do a really good job at that. Ben’s still growing, he’s still young. But his understanding of how we want to play has gone through the roof.”
Glasgow head coach Danny Wilson is able to call upon the services of Nick Grigg for the match following the centre’s release from Scotland’s Autumn Nations Cup squad. Robbie Fergusson shifts across to inside-centre.
Lock Lewis Bean, who made his club debut in Ulster last time out, will make his first start for the Warriors. And Sean Kennedy will make his first start at Scotstoun since November 2012, the scrum-half lining up alongside Pete Horne at half-back.
Tommy Seymour and Robbie Nairn come into the back three after missing the match in Belfast, and scrum-half Caleb Korteweg is set to make his first home appearance for Glasgow after being named amongst the replacements.
Glasgow have lost four of their first five matches this season, not ideal preparation against last season’s semi-finalists. “Munster are a good side and a tough challenge, but we know we have the players to be able to go out there and execute,” Wilson told glasgowwarriors.org.
“It’s nice to welcome Nick back into the squad. Although he’ll be disappointed to have been released by Scotland, this is a chance for him to get game time and he’s keen to make an impact in the midfield.”
The teams’ previous meeting was a humdinger back in October 2018. George Horne finished two brilliant team tries by the Warriors but Rory Scannell’s long-range penalty clinched a 25-24 Munster home win with the last kick of the match. Watch highlights of that here.
Glasgow: Glenn Bryce; Tommy Seymour, Nick Grigg, Robbie Fergusson, Robbie Nairn; Pete Horne, Sean Kennedy; Aki Seiuli, Grant Stewart, Enrique Pieretto, Lewis Bean, Rob Harley, Ryan Wilson (capt), Tom Gordon, TJ Ioane.
Replacements: 16 Johnny Matthews, 17 Alex Allan, 18 D’arcy Rae, 19 Hamish Bain, 20 Fotu Lokotui, 21 Caleb Korteweg, 22 Brandon Thomson, 23 Niko Matawalu.
Munster: Mike Haley; Calvin Nash, Rory Scannell, Damian de Allende, Matt Gallagher; Ben Healy, Craig Casey; James Cronin, Kevin O’Byrne, Stephen Archer; Jean Kleyn, Billy Holland (capt), Fineen Wycherley, Jack O’Sullivan, Gavin Coombes.
Replacements: 16 Rhys Marshall, 17 Josh Wycherley, 18 Keynan Knox, 19 Jack O’Donoghue, 20 Tommy O’Donnell, 21 Nick McCarthy, 22 JJ Hanrahan, 23 Dan Goggin.
