GLOUCESTER will go in search of their second successive Heineken Cup victory on Sunday with an unchanged team to face Cardiff at the Millennium Stadium (3pm).
Head coach Dean Ryan has kept faith with the entire 22 that got off to a victorious start with a 22-10 win over Biarritz last Saturday.
There is no place for Nick Wood, who has not recovered from a groin strain, Matthew Watkins or Andy Titterrell as Ryan names an unchanged side for the first time this season.
Olivier Azam, the Heineken Cup man of the match last weekend, will be partnered in the front row by props Alasdair Dickinson and Carlos Nieto.
Marco Bortolami and Alex Brown share the second row positions for the fifth successive match, while the back row is made up of Peter Buxton, Alasdair Strokosch and Luke Narraway.
"I think we know and understand we can play better than we did last weekend but at the same time our approach was first class," Ryan said.
"We know our game will get better from the foundation we produced against Biarritz but it was vital we had that against top quality opposition and we will need that again on Sunday.
"It is about getting the balance right. Sometimes, in big games, perhaps we have been guilty of over-playing at times but are striving to get it right. We have exposed ourselves to too much risk - it's about playing but in the right areas.
"We did a lot of things right at the weekend and hopefully that can make us play more - we want to build on that performance this weekend."
In the three-quarters, Ryan is able to name scrum-half Gareth Cooper and stand-off Ryan Lamb as his half-backs.
Mike Tindall will skipper the side from the number 13 position, while Olly Barkley will wear 12 for the second successive game and fourth time in total this season.
The back three of Olly Morgan, Iain Balshaw and James Simpson-Daniel is also intact. Simpson-Daniel scored Gloucester's only try last Saturday and now has 18 in the Heineken Cup.
The bench once again has a four-three forward split. The front row options are hooker Scott Lawson and prop Jack Forster. Adam Eustace and Andy Hazell complete the options.
Rory Lawson, Willie Walker and Lesley Vainikolo are the three-quarter options at Ryan's disposal.
GLOUCESTER (v Cardiff, Sunday, 3pm): Olly Morgan; Iain Balshaw, Mike Tindall (capt), Olly Barkley, James Simpson-Daniel; Ryan Lamb, Gareth Cooper; Alasdair Dickinson, Olivier Azam, Carlos Nieto, Marco Bortolami, Alex Brown, Peter Buxton, Alasdair Strokosch, Luke Narraway. Reps: Scott Lawson, Jack Forster, Adam Eustace, Andy Hazell, Rory Lawson, Willie Walker, Lesley Vainikolo.
