New Season Could Be Too Soon For Glasgow

Glasgow have had to pull out of the pre-season tournament they won in France last year due to a lack of fit players – apparently they cannot field a full squad of 22 able to play. Compounding this is the news that Johnnie Beattie and James Eddie both face sizeable layoffs after shoulder surgery. Couple with the loss of seasoned heads like Dan Parks and Kelly Brown in the off-season, one hopes that their season-opening run of home games does not prove disappointing to the growing Firhill faithful. Before that of course they have a number of friendly warm-ups. Here’s hoping they are injury free…

Ayr at Millbrae on Saturday 7 August (kick-off 3pm)
Sale Sharks at Firhill on Friday 20 August (7.30pm)
Wasps at Adams Park on Saturday 28 August (3pm)
