Brown is involved for the first time this season following his recovery from an ankle injury, while Tommy Seymour is back in the starting line-up after shaking off a knock he picked up in Cardiff and runs out at Scotstoun for the first time this season.

Stand-off Finn Russell, who was at the subject of speculation surrounding a potential move to Racing 92 earlier this week, is not involved in the 23, with Peter Horne taking the No 10 jersey.

Coach Dave Rennie has made nine changes from the side that beat Munster last week for the visit of an Italian side confident after recording back-to--back victories against Edinburgh and Ospreys.

Brandon Thomson is another to feature for the first time this year having signed from The Stormers permanently this summer and Niko Matawalu is in line to make his Scotstoun return.
