Scotland trio cleared to play in Glasgow game
The trio have been part of Gregor Townsend’s pool for the Guinness Six Nations, but will play no part against Wales in Cardiff on Saturday after they were named in the Warriors line-up for their United Rugby Championship showdown at Scotstoun.
Johnson is the most notable of the Scotland contingent to be listed in the Glasgow side as he started in the 20-17 win over England last weekend.
Attack coach Nigel Carolan will take charge of the team after head coach Danny Wilson tested positive for coronavirus.
He is looking forward to an exciting meeting between two sides currently in the top four of the URC.
“We were really pleased with our performance against Connacht two weeks ago,” he told the club’s website. “We played in the right areas of the pitch and created a lot of scoring opportunities.
“There’s a lot of history between us and Munster. They are a quality side and we’ll need to bring the same defensive energy and attacking intent.
“It’s great to be back at Scotstoun on a Friday night and we’re looking forward to the challenge of Munster.”
There are four changes to the side that won 42-20 at Connacht the weekend before last. Centre Robbie Fergusson will make his first appearance of the season.
