READERS’ FORUM: Welcome to our live coverage of the United Rugby Championship Round Three match between Glasgow Warriors and the Lions at the Scotstoun Stadium.

The Warriors have won their last five matches at Scotstoun and their only two previous defeats in nine matches against South African opponents have come away from home.

The Lions have never faced Scottish opposition in a competitive fixture before and will be looking for a return to winning ways after following up their victory against Zebre in Round One – with a defeat to the Scarlets last time out.
