Academy back rower Sam Underhill is readying to lead England Under 18s into battle for the final of the FIRA/AER European championships, and took time out of training to chat with the club website from their base in Poland.
It was announced last week that a hugely important deal had been struck regarding the future of European club rugby competition. Gloucester Rugby CEO Stephen Vaughan discussed the decision with the club website.
England Under 18s have named their side to face Wales in the semi-final of the FIRA/AER European Championship in Poznan tomorrow (kick-off 1.00pm BST) and have named an all-Gloucester Rugby Academy back row.
This game had so many twists and turns that no-one knew who would emerge triumphant until the very final minute, but referee Tim Wigglesworth took centre stage as multiple cards and a penalty try handed the win to Bath by 18 points to 17.
This weekend, Gloucester Rugby take on Bath Rugby in Round Nineteen of the Aviva Premiership (kick off 3:15pm) and there is plenty going on at Kingsholm alongside the action at the hotly-anticipated West Country Derby.
In what is arguably Gloucester Rugby's biggest Aviva Premiership fixture of the season, ADEY Magnaclean has teamed up with the club's Community Department to give a flag to every child attending the Bath game.
Premiership Rugby today commented on the confirmation by all parties that an exciting new set of European club competitions will start next season under the organisation of European Professional Club Rugby, a new association based in Switzerland.
