Rennie insists Glasgow won't change a thing for final clash

Last Friday's 50-20 win over Ulster extended Glasgow Warriors' winning run in the Guinness PRO14 to nine games, including a 39-24 victory at the RDS over their final opponents.

For that reason, head coach Dave Rennie is insistent that nothing will change in his side's preparation ahead of the game.

"It's a lot about intensity, we've had a good clarity session," he said.

"We'll keep doing what we've been doing though, won't over-train.

"We'll do what we need to do and also have a bit of fun.

"That eighth day (between the semi-final and final) is really important.

"The boys have shown up in really good nick - the start of the week is about reviewing and clarifying, then we bring in the intensity.

"We've got a couple of guys to manage because of bumps and bruises, but we're in a good spot."

Glasgow's back-three have been key to their current run and Tommy Seymour's first of two tries set them on their way against Ulster after just three minutes.

Alongside DTH van der Merwe and the departing Stuart Hogg, Seymour is a player that the Glasgow Warriors fans will be hoping can have a major impact on the game.
