Glasgow and Newport-Gwent Dragons face off on Sunday with only pride at stake as their Heineken Cup campaigns draw to a close.
Glasgow boss Sean Lineen will want to continue the momentum attained with last week's win over Toulouse, and makes just one change to his back-line. Ruaridh Jackson, newly selected by Scotland, slots in at fly-half in place of Dan Parks.
"It's been quite a hectic, but very enjoyable, week," said Jackson. "It was a bit of a shock to get a call-up to the Scotland training camp and now I've been given my second start for Glasgow in the Heineken Cup.
"I loved every minute of the Bath game and I can't wait to be involved again from the start this weekend."
Up front, Calum Forrester and Johnnie Beattie return to the back-row, with Kelly Brown moving tom openside. Lineen keeps faith in the same front-five that powered past Toulouse.
Glasgow Warriors: Bernardo Stortoni, Jose Maria Nunez Piossek, Max Evans, Graeme Morrison, Thom Evans, Ruaridh Jackson, Colin Gregor, Justin Va'a, Dougie Hall, Moray Low, Dan Turner, Alastair Kellock (capt), Calum Forrester, Kelly Brown, Johnnie Beattie
Replacements: Eric Milligan, Ed Kalman, Opeta Palepoi, Stevie Swindall, Mark McMillan, Hefin O'Hare, Colin Shaw
