Dozens of pupils from Mossvale and St James's primaries in Paisley formed a guard of honour at Glasgow Airport for the Glasgow Warriors squad.

The Warriors take on defending champions Leinster in the RaboDirect Pro12 final at the RDS Arena in Dublin.

An airport spokesman said: "The pupils created a fantastic atmosphere in the terminal for the Warriors and hopefully it will inspire the players to return with the trophy."

Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend talked up the travelling support who will be in Dublin to cheer on his side.

He said: "The squad have trained really well this week and everyone associated with the club can't wait to see the players perform in the final.

"It is fantastic that so many Glasgow supporters will be travelling to Dublin to get behind the team.

"We have had incredible support all season and our supporters will once again have a big role to play."

"We will give everything we have got tomorrow in our quest to achieve something which no Scottish side has done before."
