Canada international Taylor Paris will make his full debut for Glasgow in Friday's RaboDirect PRO12 clash with the Newport Gwent Dragons at Scotstoun Stadium.

The Warriors show seven changes to the side that defeated Treviso last Saturday and will be captained back-rower Chris Fusaro.

In the pack Gordon Reid lines up at loosehead prop, Tim Swinson forms a second-row alliance with Tom Ryder, while Josh Strauss comes into the back-row at number eight.

In the three-quarters, Troy Nathan makes a first start of the season at inside centre, while Paris' selection on the wing sees Niko Matawalu switch to scrum-half where he will join forces with number 10 Scott Wight.

"Considering we've had 13 players away with Scotland this week, we've been able to name another very strong side to tackle the Dragons," stated Glasgow coach Gregor Townsend.

The Dragons make two changes to the side that was well beaten by Ulster last time out.

Adam Jones starts at lock in place of Ian Nimmo, who is on the bench, while in the back row Jevon Groves get the nod to replace last week's captain Lewis Evans who is out with a groin injury.

Glasgow: 15 Peter Murchie, 14 Tommy Seymour, 13 Alex Dunbar, 12 Troy Nathan, 11 Taylor Paris, 10 Scott Wight, 9 Niko Matawalu, 8 Josh Strauss, 7 Chris Fusaro (capt), 6 Rob Harley, 5 Tim Swinson, 4 Tom Ryder, 3 Mike Cusack, 2 Dougie Hall, 1 Gordon Reid.

Replacements: 16 Finlay Gillies, 17 Ofa Fainga'anuku, 18 German Araoz, 19 James Eddie, 20 John Barclay, 21 Ryan Wilson, 22 Sean Kennedy, 23 Peter Horne

Dragons: 15 Tom Prydie, 14 Will Harries, 13 Adam Hughes, 12 Andy Tuilagi, 11 Tonderai Chavhanga, 10 Lewis Robling, 9 Jonathan Evans, 8 Toby Faletau, 7 Jevon Groves, 6 Tom Brown, 5 Rob Sidoli, 4 Adam Jones, 3 Nathan Buck, 2 Steve Jones (c), 1 Owen Evans.

Replacements: 16 Sam Parry, 17 Nathan Williams, 18 Dan Way, 19 Ian Nimmo, 20 Nic Cudd, 21 Liam Davies, 22 Steffan Jones, 23 Pat Leach
