Glasgow Warriors Head Coach Franco Smith said“We’re looking forward to being back at home tomorrow night, as we celebrate all of the clubs from Glasgow, Scotland and beyond that helped to shape our Warriors. Tomorrow 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 tomorrow night. 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 tomorrow"
