Scannell to make first start of the season for Munster's trip to Glasgow

Rassie Erasmus has made one change to his team for tomorrow night’s game against the Scottish outfit.

FRESH FROM MAKING his Ireland debut during the summer tour of the USA and Japan, Rory Scannell will start for Munster tomorrow night for the first time this season.

In the only change made by director of rugby Rassie Erasmus from last weekend’s win at the Ospreys, Scannell replaces Jaco Taute at centre for Friday’s trip to Scotstoun to face Glasgow Warriors [KO 7.35pm, TG4] in the Guinness Pro14.

As Munster aim to stay on top of Conference A with a fourth win from as many games, prop Dave Kilcoyne has been deemed fit enough to be named among the replacements after recovering from the knee injury he sustained against the Cheetahs a fortnight ago.
