Scotland centre Sam Johnson returns for Glasgow Warriors in the first instalment of their 1872 Cup derby with Edinburgh in the Pro14.

Ruaridh Jackson starts at full-back and George Horne at scrum-half, while Rob Harley replaces the suspended Matt Fagerson in the back row.

Edinburgh head coach Richard Cockerill only retains five of the side that beat Wasps 9-7 in the Challenge Cup.

Wing Duhan van der Merwe returns to make his 50th club appearance.

Also recalled are Scotland backs Blair Kinghorn, Mark Bennett and Henry Pyrgos, with international colleagues Stuart McInally, Grant Gilchrist, Ben Toolis and Magnus Bradbury among the forwards.

  • Three-week ban for Glasgow’s Fagerson
  • Glasgow ‘clearly better than us’ – McInally
  • Glasgow ‘desperate’ for derby win

Glasgow go into Saturday’s game sitting fourth in Conference A, six points behind
