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.
