Hooker Ben Phillips and back row forward Rob Connolly, both former club captains, have both made welcome returns to the playing staff at Birmingham & Solihull Bees.
Phillips, who joined Gloucester earlier in the season, has been made available to the Bees by the Kingsholm coaching staff on a loan basis until the end of the season.
Phillips joined Gloucester at a time when Olivier Azam was suspended and Scott Lawson was set to be absent on Scotland international duty potentially leaving Darren Dawidiuk as the only hooker at the club.
His first appearance in Gloucester colours was a memorable one as he came off the bench in the historic fixture against the Qantas Wallabies in early November before starting the LV=Cup tie against London Wasps.
Bees Director of Rugby Russell Earnshaw is delighted to welcome back Phillips and Connolly.
"We've got a real fight on our hands to stay in the Championship this year and it is a massive boost for the whole squad to see the return of two highly experienced and seasoned campaigners like Bumps and Rob."
Both players will be available for selection for this weekend's fixture against Cornish Pirates.

Ben was one of a number of players who spoke at a press conference following the squad announcement.
