Thursday evening sees the return of live action to Kingsholm in the form of the Premiership Rugby 7s and the Cherry and Whites have named an exciting squad ready to take on Bath Rugby, Exeter Chiefs and London Irish in Pool B.
The squad, lead again by Olly Morgan and Simon Lane, sees two faces that helped lift the trophy at the last season's curtain-raiser return in Steph Reynolds and Rhodri McAtee, and they are joined by a sprinkling of talent from across the Gloucester Rugby Academy in a squad captained by new signing Aled Thomas.
Back-to-back Junior World Championship winners Callum Braley and Henry Purdy are set to make their bow in Cherry and White after summer moves to the club while England Under 18 Sam Underhill appears alongside centre Ollie Thorley, a first team debutant in February against Northampton Saints.
Young back rower Dan Thomas will be involved after a summer move from the Scarlets and Jacob Rowan will also have a first chance to impress at Kingsholm.
The experience in the squad will be provided by Sevens' World Cup winner Thomas, alongside McAtee who both starred in the Welsh victory in 2009, with Sam Showering of the Wailers' Sevens squad appearing in Cherry and White for the first time.

Gloucester's win in Treviso last week means that they need a bonus point win against Bayonne on Saturday evening to secure a home quarter-final (kick off 8pm), but Tim Taylor wants the team to focus on the performance first and foremost.
Billy Burns and Man of the Match Richard Hibbard spoke to GRTV after the 41-0 win in Treviso, on a day when preparations weren't ideal. They felt the team's attitude was key and also praised the travelling support.
Matt Scott was again in impressive try scoring form for the Cherry and Whites on Saturday, and the Scotsman laid praise on his fellow backs for their attacking skills in a big 55-19 win over Worcester Warriors
Jonny May spilled blood for the cause on Saturday, before going on to score the first try in the 55-19 Aviva Premiership victory over Worcester. He told GRTV that the win was a reward for the hard work the squad have been putting in.
The Gloucester Rugby Heroes are back this month, and the huge array of past stars of Cherry and White, with a sprinkling of sporting legends and TV stars will assemble to take on the South African Legends on Sunday 29th January at Kingsholm.
