Freddie Burns is set to play for the first time since recent calf surgery as he has been named to start at fly half in the A League against Saracens at Kingsholm on Monday evening.
Also set to feature on Monday evening is Fijian international winger Semi Tadulala whilst there is plenty of first team experience in the pack particularly with a front row of Pierre Capdevielle, Darren Dawidiuk and Paul Doran-Jones and in a back row including Peter Buxton and Apo Satala.
Burns has made nine appearances in total this season but last featured at Harlequins in the Guinness Premiership at the end of November before undergoing surgery to alleviate problems with cramp.
The pitch at Kingsholm was covered as soon as the Guinness Premiership fixture against Worcester Warriors on Saturday was completed.
However, with bitterly cold conditions predicted for Gloucester over the next 24 hours, should there be any doubts over the fixture taking place then the club website will be updated first.
