EPCR Challenge Cup side Glasgow Warriors have been handed a welcomed boost as prop Zander Fagerson returns from injury to start for Scotland in their Six Nations game against Wales at BT Murrayfield on Saturday.

The 27-year-old is yet to appear in this season’s EPCR Challenge Cup and has missed the last two months with injury but will now look to put together a run of games before Glasgow host Dragons RFC in the Round of 16 on April 1.

Fagerson is one of six Glasgow representatives in the Scotland team, joining hooker George Turner, lock Richie Gray, wing Kyle Steyn and the midfield pairing of Huw Jones and Sione Tuipulotu.

Meanwhile, Cardiff Rugby’s Dillon Lewis and Scarlets’ Wyn Jones are two EPCR Challenge Cup talents coming into the front row for Wales.

Scarlets hooker Ken Owens retains his starting place, as does RC Toulon fly-half Dan Biggar, Dragons wing Rio Dyer, Cardiff scrum-half Tomos Williams, wing Josh Adams and full-back Liam Williams.

Cardiff No.8 Taulupe Faletau drops to the bench, joining clubmate Rhys Carre, Scarlets’ Rhys Patchell and Dragons’ Leon Brown.
