Glasgow Warriors captain Kyle Steyn has been passed fit to start their United Rugby Championship quarter-final against the Stormers at Scotstoun. 

The winger missed the visit of Zebre last week, but returns as one of five changes made by head coach Franco Smith from the win over the Italian side. 

The other alterations see Scott Cummings replace Max Williamson at lock, with Williamson dropping to the bench, while George Horne and Tom Jordan form an all-new half-back pairing.

Josh McKay also returns at fullback having sat out the win over Zebre last week.

Meanwhile, Glasgow also welcome back Scotland hooker George Turner, who is named among the replacements and he could make his 100th appearance for the club if called upon.

It is also likely to be his Scotstoun farewell with the hooker set to move to Japan, and the same applies for fellow substitutes Oli Kebble and Ross Thompson.

An unchanged front row sees Johnny Matthews pack down between Jamie Bhatti and Zander Fagerson, while Cummings joins Richie Gray in the second row. 

Rory Darge continues at openside after a Player of the Match display last weekend, as Matt Fagerson and Jack Dempsey make it an all-international starting pack for Franco Smith’s side.

Behind the scrum, Horne and Jordan are both promoted from the replacements bench to start, while Sione Tuipulotu and Huw Jones - who made his injury comeback last week - link up again in midfield.

McKay and Steyn are joined in the back three by Argentinian international Sebastian Cancelliere, meaning there is no place for Kyle Rowe in the matchday 23 despite an excellent showing against Zebre. 

Turner joins Nathan McBeth and  Kebble in providing front row cover, while Williamson is joined on the bench by Euan Ferrie and Henco Venter to complete the forward replacements in a 6/2 split. 

Jamie Dobie and Thompson cover the back line, the Edinburgh-bound fly-half set to make his 50th appearance for the club this weekend.

Smith said: “The Stormers have a proud record in the URC playoffs, and we know they will be coming to Scotstoun intent on continuing that record tomorrow night.

“They have some brilliant individuals who have the ability to hurt you from anywhere on the field, in addition to being a physical unit with and without the ball.

“We’re looking forward to the challenge and we know the Warrior Nation will make themselves known as they get behind us tomorrow night.”
