RaboDirect PRO12: Glasgow Warriors V Treviso preview
Glasgow Warriors take on Treviso at Scotstoun Stadium on Friday looking to make it three RaboDirect PRO12 wins in a row.
The Warriors go into this game - which was originally postponed on December 20 due to a waterlogged pitch - on the back of home victories over Scarlets and Ospreys.
After ending a six-game losing run at home to Edinburgh on Saturday, Treviso are now attempting to achieve back-to-back victories in the tournament for the first time since December 2012.
The Italians have won just once away from home in the PRO12 since then - 41-17 at the Scarlets last May.
Glasgow have won their last three encounters with Treviso whilst the Italians' only previous victory on Glasgow soil came at Firhill in September 2011.
As for team news, prop Geoff Cross is set to make his debut for Glasgow after recently joining the club from Edinburgh until the end of the season as injury cover.
He replaces Jon Welsh at tighthead, while Peter Horne has been named among the replacements and features in a Warriors squad for the first time this season after more than nine months out of action with an ACL injury sustained on Scotland's tour to South Africa last summer.
Peter Murchie continues at full-back, with Sean Maitland coming in for last week's try-scorer Tommy Seymour on the right wing and Niko Matawalu continuing on the left side.
After helping Scotland win the Bowl final at the Hong Kong Sevens last weekend, Mark Bennett comes in for Alex Dunbar at outside centre and forms a new midfield partnership with Finn Russell.
With Duncan Weir and Chris Cusiter both rested this week after featuring for Scotland during the Six Nations, Ruaridh Jackson comes in at fly-half and Henry Pyrgos has been named at scrum-half.
Gordon Reid continues at loosehead prop and Pat MacArthur keeps his place at hooker, alongside Cross in the front row.
Tim Swinson and captain Al Kellock both return from injury to line up in the second-row.
Rob Harley continues at blindside, Tyrone Holmes replaces Chris Fusaro at openside and Ryan Wilson comes in for Josh Strauss at number eight.
Kevin Bryce could make his second appearance for the Warriors from the bench after recently signing a new two-year deal with the club, while Lee Jones and James Eddie are also named among the replacements, after featuring for Scotland Sevens in Hong Kong last weekend.
Meanwhile, Treviso coach Marius Goosen has made seven changes to his run-on side after last Saturday's victory against Edinburgh.
Amongst the backs, there are two changes with Andrea Pratichetti and Christian Loamanu replacing Ludovico Nitoglia and Michele Campagnaro on the right wing and at outside centre respectively.
Up front, Marco Fuser takes over from Manoa Vosawai at blindside flanker while Paul Derbyshire starts on the openside in place of Marco Filippucci.
In the second row Valerio Bernaḅ is preferred to Corniel van Zyl while Ignacio Fernandez-Rouyet and Matteo Muccignat are the starting props with Lorenzo Cittadini and Alberto De Marchi dropping down to the bench.
