Glasgow Warriors arrive to Dublin in a sparkling run of form in the PRO14 with six consecutive victories since the January 5 loss to Benetton in Treviso.

Despite a heavy defeat to Saracens in the Champions Cup quarter-final, confidence is high and they continue to receive boosts.

The most recent one came earlier this week when head coach Dave Rennie extended his contract by a year, taking him up to at least 2020.

This comes on the back of a thumping 30-7 victory against Ulster in Scotstoun last Friday.

"I've really enjoyed my first two years in Glasgow. It's a different challenge for me and there are really good people at the club, so it was an easy decision to stay," Rennie said of his choice to sign the contract extension.

"We didn't quite get to where we wanted last season, but we've got a better side this season and I think the squad we're building will be even better next season and I'm really keen to be a part of that."

Rennie will be hoping that the first phase of that progression begins with a win at the RDS and booking a spot in the semi-finals of the PRO14.
