Glasgow all fit for Leinster clash
January 7, 2000
Glasgow Caledonians will be at full strength for tonight's Heineken Cup clash with Leinster at Donnybrook.
Reds coach Richie Dixon delayed selection because a number of his players were struggling to shrug off a flu virus.
But all confirmed their fitness at a team meeting this morning and Dixon was able to name his strongest side for a match which could give the Scottish Super District a decisive advantage in their quest to reach the knock-out stages.
The Reds coach even had the luxury of naming international fly-half Craig Chalmers on the bench after the Melrose man's recent recovery from injury.
All four teams in Pool One, which includes Leicester and Stade Francais, have won two of their four matches and as yet none have recorded an away win.
The Reds complete their qualifying programme with a home clash against Stade Francais on January 14 and Dixon knows successive victories will almost certainly see his side through to the last eight.
