ROMAN HAT-TRICK HERO Craig Gilroy will have another chance to impress Joe Schmidt in Ulster’s Pro12 meeting with Glasgow Warriors [Ravenhill, Saturday 3pm, Sky Sports].

Gilroy is joined in the starting XV by two more of Schmidt’s fringe internationals — Tommy Bowe, who came off the bench in last week’s win over Edinburgh, and Luke Marshall.

Les Kiss also welcomes back Ruan Pienaar who has recovered from a knee injury and makes his first start of 2017.

There are a further four changes in the pack with Callum Black, Pete Browne, Franco van der Merwe and Sean Reidy all starting.
