It's not quite clear who is available (injuries and Wales players being rested), but Pivac hasn't said Foxy is getting a break, so it'll be something like:

15 McNicholl
14 Prydie
13 Foxy
12 Fonotia 
11 Steff
10 Patch
9  Hardy

8 Cassiem
7 Boyde
6 Rawlins
5 Cummins
4 Ball
3 Kruger
2 Elias
1 Rob Evans

16 Daf Hughes
17 Wyn Jones
18 Gardiner
19 Bulbring
20 Dan Davis
21 SHC
22 Dan Jones
23 Asquith

I'm assuming Kennedy is out after his HIA, and that Josh Macleod is still out as well as Marc Jones, Phil Price, Blade etc. - and that Cassiem is OK.
I share no-one's ideas. I have my own.

Injured last time out - I think 'it was said' he won't be fit for a while, but I could be wrong.

  Marc Jones was struggling to be fit for Ulster game but turned out and played really well there seemed no ill effects or reaction .

I'd pick
15. Johnny McNicholl
14. Ioan  nicholas
13. Kieran Fonotia
12. Paul Asquith
11. Steffan Evans
10. Rhys Patchell
9. Kieran Hardy
8. Uzair Cassiem
7. Wil Boyde
6. Lewis Rawlins
5. Steve Cummins
4. Jake Ball
3. Werner Kruger
2. Ryan Elias
1. Wyn Jones
16. Marc Jones
17. Rob Evans
18. Simon Gardiner
19. David Bullbring
20. Dan Davis
21. Sam Hidalgo Clyne
22. Dan Jones
23. Tom Prydie

My main worry would be lack of pace in the back row, with Dan Davis not yet quite ready to take over from one of the other 3.

Keep Foxy, Ball and Ken away from Glasgow's plastic pitch, don't want to risk our star players in a game we are unlikely to win.

I don’t know why you think they’re unlikely to win. Scarlets have a very good chance
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

We don't do well on plastic pitches and Glasgow are capable of giving anyone a hiding at home. We are no longer capable of doing the same. We may well be if we could field a settled team for a run of games but that is not likely to happen soon.

It always bothers me at the end of an International window that we need to give our senior players a weeks break, when we need them on the park to gel ready for our European games. Because if they suddenly came up with another international to play this weekend they would all be hoping to play in it.

Pivac has said we are only resting Ken, Hadleigh & Gareth so we will have everyone else (with the exception of Halfpenny) back for selection.

After opinion on selection for hooker on the bench? Has Marc Jones done more than Dafydd Hughes in the minutes they have played? Regardless of experience I think Dafydd Hughes looks the better player personally.

Don't understand your pessimism again. We've a fairly good record in Glasgow compared to others, last time out we won comfortably 28-13 and the time before 26-14. We are very capable of giving most teams a hiding on our day. Remember class is permanent and form is temporary my friend and we have a lot of class.

I do agree with not risking Foxy though.

I assume Glasgow will be in the same boat as us with Internationals returning etc. When we play them both sides fully loaded as in the semis of the pro 14 last season I am confident we can beat them as we tend to have the edge up front which is their achilles heel. As for this season I have my doubts as to whether we are firing on enough cylinders yet, particularly away,  to get that edge. I will probably go for a Glasgow win in the Baz predictions.

We don't do well on plastic pitches? Didn't we stuff them up there last season? Also beat the Blues on a plastic pitch.
