AUSTRALIAN hooker Jeremy Paul will be in action for Gloucester in the Guinness A League tonight against Wasps.
He will be one of a number of familiar first-team names in action at Moseley's Billesley Common this evening (7.30pm kick-off).
Alongside Paul in the forwards, Jack Forster will also be in action, while Mike Prendergast, Ali James, James Bailey and Mark Foster add flair to the backline.
Academy prospects Dan Williams (at No8), Mark Davies (fly-half) and Henry Trinder (centre) also make the starting line-up, with partner club Moseley supplementing the starting XV.
The match is free to Gloucester Rugby season ticket holders.
How to find Moseley: Since 2005 all first XV games, and all other teams, are based together at our new Billesley home, in the Kings Heath area, South of Birmingham City Centre and just a mile from our original home in Moseley. The main entrance to the ground is on the Yardley Wood Road, on the east side of Billesley Common.
Speaking to the local media this week ahead of the Bath Rugby game, Head Coach Laurie Fisher stressed that the fundamental shape of Gloucester's game is in good shape but that the Cherry and Whites have to look after the ball better and make more of their scoring opportunities.
Skipper for the day Willi Heinz faced the cameras after the 13-18 home loss to Newcastle and expressed real frustration at not being able to back up last week's win at Sale, calling it a performance he and his team-mates are not proud of.
Speaking after the game, Charlie Sharples described it as 'the win that has eluded us.' The winger stressed that Gloucester had stayed positive after the first couple of weeks of the Aviva Premiership season and the 26-13 victory over Sale was a result of that focus.
Gloucester Rugby picked up their first win of the new Aviva Premiership season on Friday night, easing to a 26-13 win on the road at Sale Sharks. Director of Rugby David Humphreys was full of praise for his players on the night.
Greig Laidlaw is back to skipper Gloucester Rugby in Saturday's Aviva Premiership derby game against Bath Rugby at Kingsholm. James Hook will make his first start of the season at full-back and Billy Twelvetrees will make his 100th competitive appearance for the club.
Wednesday evening saw the launch of the Cherry and White Wednesday show on the Drivetime programme on BBC Radio Gloucestershire, with Henry Trinder live in the studio to kick off a regular weekly slot.
