Head coach Franco Smith told glasgowwarriors.org: “(Saturday) night will be a special moment for Jamie in particular, as he reaches his 100th appearance for the club; he is someone that gives his all every time he is selected for this club, and I know the crowd will show their appreciation.

“We’re also pleased to see Facundo and Ruaraidh pull on the jersey for the first time – both men have worked hard and will be looking to make an impact.”
