Danny Wilson’s men depart from Glasgow Airport on Monday 18 ahead of Friday’s clash with the Stormers at Newlands in Cape Town, before facing the Bulls at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria a week later.

It will be the first time Glasgow Warriors have faced either franchise, having earned victories over the Sharks and Lions at Scotstoun earlier this season.

In total, 17 Scotland internationals will board the plane to South Africa, including the Player of the Match from Friday’s win over Newcastle Falcons in the form of Kyle Steyn.

Further international experience is provided in the form of Jack Dempsey and Domingo Miotti, as well as Scotland 7s veterans Robbie Fergusson and Ally Miller.

Scottish Rugby Academy second-rower Max Williamson also travels with the squad, and would make his Glasgow Warriors debut if called onto the field in either of the two fixtures.

Co-captains Ryan Wilson and Fraser Brown lead the travelling party, with a win in either match guaranteeing Glasgow’s place in the URC knockout stages.
