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.

Gloucester dominated for long periods against Wasps at the Ricoh Stadium on Sunday afternoon but were made to pay the price for defensive lapses and a number of key refereeing decisions not going their way in a 32-21 defeat.
