The risk for Glasgow is that Tigers react like they did to the loss in TP, and come out swinging. I think Glasgow have the quality and pace to win this if they don't get drawn into a slugfest, but home advantage suggests that Leicester will be better, and it could be a tough evening.

All this. If it is a cold/near frozen surface, I think Glasgow have an evens chance. If it's a bog, forget it.

It's better (could hardly have been worse than the disgrace of earlier seasons) but I really meant if it tipped down with rain making it a tactical arm wrestle.

Now be fair. It isn't as flat or empty as East anglia but as I took a pay cut to leave and move to the southwest I'm probably not the best person to big up the Midlands.

BBC forecast for the next few days in Leicester is heavy cloud but little or no rain, so the pitch might be OK. Its still a heavier pitch than most grass pitches that they're used to playing on though, and won't do them Glasgow any favours.

Given the modern attrition of players to injury, Leicester should wrap up all the first squad in cotton wool and just throw out a bunch of kids to save the big guns for the domestic campaign.

For sure particularly after the spankings they took in Limerick and Paris. The points conceded numbers are starting to resemble their salary bill.

Gregor Townsend has named an unchanged starting XV for tomorrow’s final European Rugby Champions Cup pool match at Welford Road.Jonny Gray wil captain the side at Welford Road tomorrow

The Warriors know a win against Leicester would guarantee them a place in the quarter-finals of the tournament for the first time.

Stuart Hogg, Tommy Seymour and Lee Jones make up the back-three.

Mark Bennett and Alex Dunbar form the centre partnership, while Finn Russell and Ali Price once again combine at stand-off and scrum-half respectively.

Gordon Reid, Fraser Brown and Zander Fagerson will pack down in the front-row, while Tim Swinson and captain Jonny Gray are in the engine room.

Rob Harley is at blind-side flanker, with Ryan Wilson at open-side and Josh Strauss at Number 8.

On the bench Brian Alainu'uese returns from suspension and Henry Pyrgos has recovered from injury.

Glasgow Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend said: “Leicester have an excellent home record in this competition and we’re expecting a very tough 80 minutes at Welford Road.

“We have prepared really well for the game and our players returned to training this week full of energy and determination.

"It’s good that we’re able to name the same starting XV for this crucial game and we’re also boosted this week by the return of Brian (Alainu'uese) and Henry (Pyrgos) on the bench.”

Pleased to see Henry on the bench, calm head to guide the team home.

Also good to see a Alainu'uese back, means Gray could be allowed off if he's still carrying a calf injury (but only once the game is won).

Would have preferred Ashe on the bench ahead of Fusaro.

I'm expecting a reaction from Glasgow after last week.

Don't follow Aviva enough to know how strong a Leicester side that is, can anyone enlighten me?

Good to see Genge given a rest- been worked like a packhorse with Ayerza out. Nothing riding on this game fr Leicester other than pride- wish they would bench Cole too.

Very similar. Possibly slightly weaker in terms of personnel this time, with Toomua and Veianu missing. But that was Toomua's debut, so he probably was not up to speed and probably no better an option than Roberts is now.

It's about as strong as we've been able to put out this season, given that most of our top players have been only very intermittently available all season.

At least six of that 'Missing' list should be starting with a few on the bench. Instead, we've had Ayerza, Logo, Croft, Tuilagi, Toomua and Veianu starting a total of 30 games between them (5 each).

Been a(nother) shitter of a season for injuries.

Nothing to play for but pride for Leicester. But that home record is very imposing.

Similar to last week for Glasgow - with a fair drop off to the bench players if they want the victory then the game will need to be won before substitutions or fatigue really come into play. Really can't be doing with another Scottish sporting glorious failure...

I wonder if in the interest of the bigger picture we could strike up a deal with Leicester on this one.

If we promise that our big nasty forwards wont be nasty to their 9, would they try and make sure Fagerson comes through unscathed please.
