Scotland fly-half Ruaridh Jackson is set to make his return in Glasgow Warriors' RaboDirect PRO12 clash with Scarlets at Firhill on Thursday night.

Jackson has been included in the Warriors' 24-man squad for the game after recovering from an upper leg injury which followed a hamstring problem suffered during the Rugby World Cup.

The group may be supplemented by players from Scotland's RBS Six Nations squad.

Glasgow head coach Sean Lineen told www.glasgowwarriors.org: "It's great to have Ruaridh back in the mix.

"He's had a frustrating time of it since the World Cup, not being able to get up a head of steam or a run of games because of injury.

"But he's had a month away from the field since the last Scarlets game and he's raring to go. I'm really looking forward to seeing him back out there for us.

"We've been speaking to the Scotland coaches all week in terms of players that might be available to us, and we've got a good idea of where we're going selection-wise ahead of confirming our team tomorrow (Wednesday)."
