Beirne set for Munster debut off bench as Taute returns for Glasgow trip

The 26-year-old joined Munster from the Scarlets this summer and, after sitting out last weekend’s win over the Cheetahs, is now set to make his bow at Scotstoun Stadium tomorrow.

Included on the Munster bench alongside Beirne is South African back Jaco Taute, who has been sidelined for close to a year with a knee injury. 

There is only one change to Johann van Graan’s starting team following the success against the Cheetahs, with Sammy Arnold coming in at outside centre.

James Cronin is included on the bench this week, as is second row Fineen Wycherley, which could mean that Beirne sees game time in the back row for Munster. 

Meanwhile, Glasgow boss Dave Rennie has named a strong XV as the Warriors look to back up last weekend’s win against Connacht in Glasgow.

The introductions of hooker Fraser Brown and number eight Adam Ashe are the only personnel changes to Glasgow’s starting team.
