Top Three Battles: Glasgow v Ulster

Top Three Battles: Glasgow v Ulster

Matt Fagerson v Marcell Coetzee

The rampaging No. 8 has been a breath of fresh air for the Irish province this season following an injury free period which has allowed him to showcase his world class abilities on the European stage. His form has led to increased attention from back home as the Springbok selectors are allowed pick from Europe after a change in selection criteria. He faces the young 20-year-old Scotland back-rower in Matt Fagerson, who has also had a terrific season especially in the Champions Cup and his performances have led to him locking down the Eight shirt for the season.

Jonny Gray v Iain Henderson

The talismanic second row has endured a mixed campaign to date, after being dropped by Gregor Townsend in February for his national side, Gray has put that behind him to finish the season strongly. His most notable effort was in Dublin against Leinster when he completed a tally of 42 tackles without missing a single opponent. Up against the towering engine room dynamo is Ulster's very own powerhouse, Iain Henderson, who is playing some of his very best rugby just in time for Ireland's world cup charge.

Stuart Hogg v Michael Lowry

It will be a very emotional night for Stuart Hogg as he plays his final home game for Glasgow before his move to Devon and the Premiership Rugby. Hogg is without doubt the greatest Glasgow player to don the Warriors shirt and will join Exeter Chiefs in the summer after a nine-year spell. The Scotland full back will line up opposite Ulster's young talent, Michael Lowry, the utility back is enjoying a breakthrough season with his home province and after a couple of assured efforts in Europe, Lowry is sure to be excited to test his wits against one of the best in the business.
