Glasgow head coach Sean Lineen is looking forward to the Welsh double which will get the Warriors season underway.
When the Celtic League fixtures for the 2008/09 season were announced, they paired Glasgow with Newport-Gwent Dragons in the opening round.
The Warriors will travel to Rodney Parade on the first weekend in September as they try to improve on their fifth-place finish last year - the club's best ever placing.
In their second match Glasgow will play the star-studded Ospreys as their home season gets underway at Firhill.
Lineen's men also face the the Dragons in the European Cup and Lineen knows they are in for a challenging start to the campaign.
He told Glasgow's website: "It's a challenge to start our season away from home against the Dragons but it'll be the first time since I've been involved with Glasgow that we'll bring the curtain down on our domestic campaign at home.
"The Dragons were responsible for cutting short our year long unbeaten home run by a week so it's going to be interesting with us playing them in both the Celtic League and in Europe.
"Our first home game will also be a massive one against the Ospreys and will give us a perfect opportunity to gauge our progress at an early stage as we prepare to better our fifth place finish last year."
As head coach Stuart Lancaster polishes the axe he will soon wield over his World Cup training squad, Exeter Chiefs coach Rob Baxter has backed Jack Nowell, Henry Slade and Luke Cowan-Dickie to be given a stay of execution.
Italy Under-20s held off a late Samoa blitz to retain their place in the World Rugby U20 Championship on Saturday and head coach Alessandro Troncon believes the experience will have served as a valuable lesson for his young troops.
