Well that's not necessarily true, is it?

Would you rather I phrased it:

If we beat Glasgow at home, then we are likely to beat most other teams in the in league at home (bar changes in form, flukes and one-off under/over performances which always happen) and since we just beat Munster away, we are likely to pick up some more away wins, at least against the Italian teams which we f'ed up last season and considering we appear to be continuing an improvement in performance since Christmas last year from which we have won the vast majority of our matches, then, assuming no dramatic changes in form (which seem unlikely with the current coaching set-up) or severe injury concerns, then the likelyhood of us being in contention for a top 4 play-off place during the last few weeks of the season compared to competing for a top 6 slot as we were last season is dramatically improved.

Personally I prefer the shorter version.

It is meant to rain on Friday so Toonie has gone for an up the jumper tactic and try to dominate the set piece. It will be an interesting battle.

This is the sort of game where Vernon, if he could stay healthy, would be perfect.

Slightly nervous looking at those line ups - a talented but very inexperienced Glasgow side.

The bench is clearly designed for a rescue plan if it's all going jubblies up at half time. Presumably Horne will move to 10 with Bennett slotting in at 12 and Hughes coming on if the Selkirk Pixie is getting squished by Alex Cuthbert. Jones must weight about the same as Cuthbert's right boot.

Solid front 5 - with Jeff/Oscar/Greg coming on if Tiny Tim proves to be too tiny. Wilson 'doing a job' at 7 worked well enough last season although he's up against 3 x opensides this time, so we could get turned over quite a bit. Superb to see the Mighty Beard back at 8. Strauss, Brown, Swinson and Gray will be our carrying options.

Absolutely no idea how our halfbacks are going to play or what Grigg will offer. I have hardly seen him play, but Toonie seems to rate him, so let's see he goes because it's going to be a tough first test for him.

Finn Russell is back playing for Ayr this weekend, and apparently will wear a headguard for the rest of the season

Glasgow Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend has confirmed Finn Russell will return to competitive action on Saturday playing for Ayr at Hawick.

The Scotland fly-half, 23, has been out since suffering a severe head injury in Warriors' Pro12 semi-final loss away to Connacht in May.

"Finn's now trained two weeks full contact," said Townsend.

"He's worked really hard and can't wait to get back playing so he's playing for Ayr, his allocated club team."

Townsend also revealed Russell will wear a scrum cap this season as a precaution, with his rehabilitation being monitored closely by the Warriors medical staff.

"That'll be great for him playing down at Mansfield Park and it'll be good to see him back playing and see how he gets on," added Townsend.

Cardiff Blues v Glasgow Warriors: team news

"If he gets through that game then I see him being in the selection mix for the Ulster game [on 23 September], but that will depend on how he reacts on contact and his match fitness - not what his form is like.

"To have him going into round four of the season is a real boost."

Not that a headguard would have been any use for his injury given that it was a blow to his eye socket...

Weather forecast is dry as a bone for Cardiff. We're hoping it drags a few of the casuals along to bump up the crowd numbers.

How is the weather forecast for Cardiff better than everywhere else? Opposite to normal.

Cardiff deserves bigger crowds the way they have played since New Year and the failure to develop crowds when the stadium is in the centre near the rail station and the main night out for the entire surrounding area is almost criminal.

Well, I am glad that Nick Williams isn't playing. The two back rows are almost polar opposites, Glasgow playing only no.8/Blindsides and Cardiff playing three 7's.

The Cardiff pack could be slightly lightweight, but I think the quality behind the scrum and the very mobile backrow will see them home. Horne/Grigg must be the smallest centre pairing in pro rugby.

Not really space for him the starting team I think.

Downs and Cook have been the lineout callers in the early season (and I assume Earles has as well)

Earles has been fantastic and is the power we need in the second row.

Then the other second row slot is between Down / Cook / Turnball / Hoeata

Turnball was our best player last season, even though he mostly played at 6, I can see the need to fit him in somewhere.

Cook has been a bit of a surprise this season. He was a lock at age-grade but then played mostly at 6, now he seems to have moved back into the boiler room. He has done pretty well so far, though don't know if it will have an impact against some big scrummagers.

Down was our primary lineout coordinator last year, and a bit of an unsung hero, but he seems to have dropped down the list - he may well come back when we start facing some forward orientated scrummaging teams.

Surprised Hoeata isn't on the bench at least, but I guess Wilson hasn't seen enough from him let to replace the in-form Cook.

He has been struggling with an injury, but seemed to be back fit at the start of the season. Hasn't he played a few full games for the rags now?

Today will be his second or third. I think he was on the bench for the Newport game and he started vs Merthyr.

Bookies have Cardiff as favourites for this game. Must be the first time in a while for this fixture which, given Glasgow's start to the season, really isn't a very big vote of confidence in Toonie's selection.

I have a bad feeling about this game from a Warriors point of view, but I really hope I'm proven wrong.

Toony has made no secret that he's really targeting Europe, so he's maybe wanting to ensure the squad are as fresh as possible for the first round of ECC games.

Glasgow have Ulster at home next week which he'll want his strongest team out for, then the Dragons and Zebre away following that before Leicester at home - a must win game.

Surely he could have kept the first team for tonight and Ulster to ensure 4 important victories, and then given them a week or two off against Dragons/Zebre to ensure their fitness for Leicester?

Reports that we should get Finn Russell back for the Ulster match, which I'm sure is good new for Notch and his brothers.

Russell may be back for Ulster to give Horne a break or they run Horne one more time and give Russell the Dragons and Zebre to build himself up to bench for Leicester. Horne, Hogg, Seymour, Gray, Harley, Reid and Brown could all do with at least a week or two off before Leicester.

Would think Dragons will get a line up with Russell, Murchie, Sarto, Petersen, Wynne, Djustice and Malcolm starting. Perhaps a Dunbar (or Johnson)/Bennett centre pairing outside Pyrgos and Russell at half-back. Think that line-up would have enough firepower.

Nick Grigg is a tiny fella (5"9), yet tackles anyone of any size like a beast. Hugely impressive for such a small guy... apart from that time when he knocked himself unconscious vs Harlequins.

Listening on radio Wales. Seems to have been a good start for the Blues, with Lee-Lo almost getting a try to go with the 2 penalties.

Sounds like the Blues are blowing some chances to improve their lead in this second half.

Blues have had 4 forward passes called against them in the second half. Really killing the momentum at the moment.

Blues halfbacks have smashed heads into each other. So we can assume they are on the same wavelength

Nick Williams is having a nightmare by the sounds of it.

Knocking on in key position, awful pass trying to get the ball away from a 5m defensive scrum and now gives away a cheap penalty when the Blues had finally cleared their line
