The Glasgow Warriors have 13 top-100 players according to the United Rugby Championship. How Far can they go. Here's a look at the schedule and more

Highlights: Glasgow Warriors Vs. Munster

The Glasgow Warriors finished fourth in the United Rugby Championship in 2022-2023 with a record of 13-0-5, but their Grand Final run was dashed by the team that finished behind them. 

The Warriors hope to avoid that in 2023-2024. 

After losing to Munster in the quarterfinals 14-5, and watching the Red Army march to a URC championship a few weeks later, the Warriors look to remain in the top half of the league this season. The club relished playing in Glasgow, using the home field to fuel their record. 

Hopefully the magic is still there because Leinster comes to Glasgow in Week 1 on Oct. 22 as the URC season gets underway. 

Here’s what to know about the Glasgow Warriors.
