A big XVIth Warrior welcome back to everyone after what feels like a very long time since we last visited Scotstoun! Don't feel deprived though, as today is the first of a long sixteen games in a row for the Glasgow Warriors! A special welcome also to our friends visiting from Wales and beyond to support the Dragons today!
We'd like to extend a Glasgow welcome to Taqele Naiyaravoro, Greg Peterson, Sila Puafisi and Simone Favaro who are joining us for the first time since their international duties. Congratulations to all of our players who have been on international duty for their respective countries in the Rugby World Cup, some of whom we will be welcoming back to Scotstoun shortly after the end of the pool stages. You've made us proud! Good luck to all of our players still competing and representing Scotland this weekend in the RWC quarter finals against Australia on Sunday, and a special congratulations to Ritchie Gray and Sean Lamont on reaching landmark caps for the national team.
We would like to thank everyone who has bought XVIth Warrior champions merchandise, we will be in contact with those who still need to collect their orders. A date will shortly be announced for the annual XVIth Warrior pub quiz, so keep your eyes peeled!
We look forward to seeing everyone again tonight, and at our next home game against Ospreys on November 1st. It's our Halloween game, so get your spookiest costumes on!
