The BKT United Rugby Championship has reached the play-off stage and the final quarter-final of the weekend sees Glasgow Warriors take on the DHL Stormers.

Both sides favour attacking rugby and Glasgow will look to their strong scrum to build a platform. Their scrum is ranked third best in the league this season while the Stormers’ is ranked 14th with just an 88 per cent success rate.

Glasgow led the league as recently as last month but go into the quarter-final on the back of consecutive defeats against Bulls and Lions and an unconvincing victory over bottom-of-the-table Zebre. The Stormers won their final four games of the regular season but Glasgow came out on top 20-9 when the sides met in the league at Scotstoun in November.

The winners of the tie will meet either Munster or the Ospreys in the semi-final.

Team news

Warrick Gelant and Paul de Wet make their return to DHL Stormers match-day squad but there is no place for their influential back-rower Evan Roos, who has been ruled out with concussion. Glasgow have made five changes to their starting line-up following the laboured win over Zebre. Josh McKay replaces Kyle Rowe at full-back; club captain Kyle Steyn has recovered from a knee infection and starts on the wing, with Facundo Cordero missing out; Tom Jordan takes over at stand-off from Duncan Weir; George Horne starts at scrum-half, with Jamie Dobie dropping to the bench and Scott Cummings starts in the second row as Max Williamson joins Dobie among the replacements. George Turner has recovered from the foot injury that has kept him out since the Six Nations and is set for 100th appearance for Glasgow Warriors if called upon from the bench. It could also be his last as he is leaving the club in the summer.
