SCOTLAND winger Tommy Seymour is back for Glasgow Warriors’ final European Champions Cup Pool 3 match against Racing 92 at Kilmarnock’s Rugby Park tomorrow.

Seymour has been out with a combined knee/hamstring injury but returns to the starting XV for a match which is almost certainly Glasgow’s last in Europe this season after last week’s 19-15 loss at Northampton effectively ending their hopes of progressing.

Racing 92 have already won the pool and secured a home quarter-final ahead of the match, which has been switched to the home of Kilmarnock FC due to concerns the Scotstoun pitch would not be playable.

With Racing 92 already completing the job it is little surprise that they won’t be risking star players such as Dan Carter and Mike Phillips in this one and they have named scrum-half Maxime Machenaud, who will captain the side, and Remi Tales as half-backs.

For Glasgow, Duncan Weir could make his 100th appearance for the club from the bench,

Glasgow Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend said: “We’re determined to deliver a winning performance for our supporters, who will travel to Kilmarnock for this home fixture. Rugby Park has a quality playing surface and we’re expecting a large crowd, so it should be fantastic occasion.

“Racing 92 are packed with quality players and are in great form. This will be a good challenge for our players against one of the leading teams in Europe.

“Duncan [Weir] continues to work harder than ever, is really committed and brings energy to his performances. I’m sure that he will get a great reception from our supporters if he’s able to make his 100th appearance for the club tomorrow night.”

More than 8,500 tickets have been sold for tomorrow evening’s game but tickets are still available from and from the ticket office until 5pm this evening on 0844 800 3490. Tickets will also be available from Rugby Park from noon tomorrow.
