Scarlets big guns back for Glasgow
THE Scarlets wheel out the big guns this evening (7.35) as they look to build on an impressive opening salvo in the RaboDirect Pro12.
Grand Slam winners Jonathan Davies, Rhys Priestland and Matthew Rees return to a starting line-up that also boasts George North and Scott Williams as the West Walians look to spoil Glasgow's moving-in party at the city's Scotstoun Stadium.
A 5,000 sell-out crowd is expected for the Warriors' first match at their new home, but the hosts will find the Scarlets — buoyed by their 45-20 mauling of Leinster last weekend — in determined mood to make it two wins from two.
Head coach Simon Easterby has made five changes in all to his starting XV. Davies comes in for Gareth Maule in midfield, while Priestland replaces Aled Thomas at fly-half. Up front British Lions hooker Rees is preferred to Ken Owens, while Johnathan Edwards gets the nod at openside flanker in place of Josh Turnbull.

"It is all about building depth in the squad," said forwards coach Danny Wilson. "To do that you have to make a few adjustments. It is not a reflection of performance, but our ability to create a squad not a team.
"We have had a good look at the Warriors this week and they are a dogged team, who are tough to beat. A lot of sides come unstuck up there and we know they'll be sharp tonight in their first game at their new stadium.
"What is important for us is that we back up the performance of last weekend."
