Glasgow to seal Parkhead date

223
Leinster's Jonathan Sexton

Glasgow Warriors will be dreaming of a ‘home’ Guinness Pro 14 final at Parkhead but first they will have to battle past Ulster in Friday night’s semi-final, while Leinster need to put their European disappointment behind them as they take on Munster.

Glasgow -8.5 handicap @ 50/57

Glasgow head coach Dave Rennie will have allowed no talk of the final in the week leading up to Friday’s showdown, in what will be a fiery atmosphere at Scotstoun.

The Warriors responded well to crashing out of the European Champions Cup at the hands of eventual winners Saracens, and now Glasgow are one of the in-form teams in the northern hemisphere.

Winger DTH van der Merwe has recovered early from shoulder surgery and slots into a backline brimming with talent.

Ulster have stars of their own returning in the form of Jacob Stockdale and Louis Ludik but with home advantage, and the chance to play at Parkhead on the cards, Glasgow should edge this one.

Leinster -7.5 handicap @ 50/57

After the disappointment of losing the Champions Cup final against Sarries last time out, Leinster will be determined to bounce back when they welcome Munster to Dublin on Saturday.

The men in blue lost the arm wrestle with Saracens in Newcastle but they can’t feel sorry for themselves for too long, especially with Munster looking to take advantage.

This could be a really close encounter, with two sides capable of going all the way to win the Pro 14 this season.

However, with Jonathan Sexton pulling the strings and a world-class pack, Leinster will fancy their chances of making it to Parkhead for the final.
