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.

Skipper for the day Aled Thomas praised his Gloucester team mates, especially the younger ones, for the way they took on a tough Ospreys outfit and emerged victorious in the LV= Cup on Saturday afternoon.
Gloucester will field a reshuffled side against the Ospreys in the LV= Cup this weekend, but Backs & Attack Coach Nick Walshe stressed that it's a great opportunity for everyone on duty on Saturday and that maintaining the recent winning run is very important.
Skipper Billy Twelvetrees told GRTV after the win in Brive that the game could have been a tough one to get up for, but that his Gloucester team mates did themselves proud on the night and got a big result.
Reflecting on the 31-20 victory in Brive on Thursday evening, Director of Rugby David Humphreys said that clinching a home European Rugby Challenge Cup quarter-final was the overall aim and duly achieved.
Gloucester Rugby and the Ospreys shared seven tries and 57 points in the LV= Cup at Kingsholm on Saturday. The Cherry and Whites came out on top and the club photographer captured the best of the action.
