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.

Speaking after the 15-3 Aviva Premiership defeat at Northampton, Director of Rugby David Humphreys couldn't criticise his team's effort in difficult conditions, but pinpointed the errors and indiscipline that allowed Stephen Myler to kick the home team to victory.
A handful of the Gloucester Rugby Mo-Bros visited Pride Hair Salon in Gloucester on Wednesday afternoon to have the final touches applied to their Movember efforts, and the team captain Jacob Rowan spoke to GRTV ahead of the final few days of the month.
Northampton away was the first Gloucester game under David Humphreys last season, but the Director of Rugby told the local media that the Cherry and Whites are a different proposition compared to 12 months ago and are looking forward to the challenge.
Having skippered Gloucester against the Barbarians last week, Nick Wood once again wore the captain's armband on Monday evening as Gloucester United kicked off their Aviva Premiership A League campaign with a bonus point win at Leicester.
Gloucester recorded a 32-20 win over La Rochelle on Thursday evening, and second row Jeremy Thrush was thrilled to pick up the victory on his first taste of a trip to France and the hostile atmosphere.
Gloucester were forced to battle for their 33-20 victory in La Rochelle on Thursday evening, something that centre Bill Meakes said that he and the squad were well prepared for as well as thanking the travelling support for the part they played.
