Three Gloucester Rugby players - Alasdair Dickinson, Rory Lawson and Scott Lawson - have been named in the Scotland matchday 22 as they kick off their RBS Six Nations campaign against France on Saturday.
Talking to the local media this week, Gloucester Rugby Head Coach Bryan Redpath paid tribute to all three particularly Dickinson.
"He's had some big performances for us and it's good for him. I think they (Scotland) want to find out where he is in the whole picture. He is an impact player coming off the bench but, ultimately, you want to find out if it's a 60 minutes rather than a 20 minutes."
"They've got Jacobsen as well but I'm chuffed for Dicko, it's great for him."
A fourth Gloucester Rugby player, flanker Alasdair Strokosch is ruled out due to injury, but Redpath was also pleased for Rory and Scott Lawson.
"They've got British Lions in front of them in (Chris) Cusiter and (Ross) Ford but I'm sure they'll play a part in the game and they deserve it."
"Scotty's had a very good season and Rory is so consistent and steady and it's always good to rely on that."
"I've always said that if you play well for your club then you'll get the rewards. But use your club to play well first and not the other way round. If you play well for your club then you'll get recognition."
"But I wish all the Scottish lads well, good luck to them on Saturday."

Gloucester Rugby face their second tough Aviva Premiership fixture in six days when they take on Worcester Warriors at Kingsholm on Saturday (kick off 3pm). Head Coach Laurie Fisher is expecting a massive challenge from one of Gloucester's local rivals.
It was a frustrated and bitterly disappointed Willi Heinz who spoke to GRTV following the 12-13 reverse to Northampton Saints on New Year's Day. The skipper thanked the fans for their incredible support on a day when Gloucester couldn't quite get the job done.
A postponement, a rescheduling and a 3-hour wait on the tarmac threatened to disrupt Gloucester's trip to Treviso, but a short relocation and delay did nothing to prevent a six-try thumping over Treviso on Saturday afternoon.
It was a case of triumph over adversity for Gloucester in Italy this weekend, their pre-match preparations ruined by a relocation of the game. However, it was a job well done for the Cherry and Whites who defeated Benetton Treviso 41-0 in freezing conditions in Italy to top pool one.
