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."
Tom Marshall scored his first Gloucester try in the 31-23 win over Saracens on Friday evening and was named Man of the Match. Talking to GRTV, he praised the forwards for setting the tone on the night.
Matt Scott was on media duty this week, and the Scottish international spoke about the benefit of having a full week of training with his club mates and the determination to get back to performing well against Saracens this Friday evening.
After the disappointment of last weekend's performance at Leicester, Director of Rugby David Humphreys told GRTV that he expects a big response from Gloucester in Friday's Aviva Premiership fixture at home to Saracens (kick off 7:45pm).
