Cusiter, who will start at the Stadio Monigo in the Magners League clash, has been out of action with a knee injury for 11 months and last featured for Scotland in their 23-20 Six Nations win in Ireland in March 2010.
The former Perpignan man now faces a race against time to make the World Cup in New Zealand with just three league games remaining this season.
“Having Chris back is massive not only for us, but for him,” said Warriors Head Coach Sean Lineen. “It’s been a hard 11 months for Chris but he’s always kept his head high and we’ve always supported him.
“He’s a world class player and has been buzzing around the field all week. The whole squad has been buoyed by his return.
“The medical staff have been excellent and shown real patience as he has. It’s all about getting him on the field now and giving him every opportunity of being involved at the World Cup.”
Johnnie Beattie also returns to the starting line-up for Glasgow as he continues his gradual return to full fitness.
The No. 8 was rushed back into the Scotland side for their Six Nations defeat to Ireland but failed to impress.
But after being dropped by club and country, Beattie now has his chance to stake his claims for Andy Robinson’s final squad for the trip to New Zealand.
