THE TEAMS are being finalised for Terry Fanolua's Farewell match at Kingsholm on Saturday - and will include some of the greats from Gloucester's past.
The game will take place this Saturday - June 3 at 3pm - and Gloucester supporters can see former stars Andy Deacon, Chris Fortey, Andy Gomarsall, Dave Sims, Mike Teague and Kevin Dunn all in action, who will turn out for the Gloucester centre.
Peter Buxton and Fanolua are also expected to parade the European Challenge Cup around Kingsholm before the game to set the afternoon off with a real celebration.
It should be the perfect way for Fanolua to end his Kingsholm career and tickets are priced at £8 for adults and £4 for juniors and are on sale now from the ticket office or from 0871 871 8781.
Fanolua will play for Brive next season and had the final game of Guinness Premiership season against Wasps dedicated to him.
Former Leicester and England prop Darren Garforth, ex-Gloucester coach Paul Turner, Graham Dawe will all line-up and so to will current Gloucester skipper Buxton and Freddy Tuilagi are also expected to team-up with the cream of local rugby talent to offer a thrilling end to rugby at Kingsholm this season.
Speaking straight after the game, skipper Billy Twelvetrees told GRTV that losing at home to Bath, in front of a tremendous home support, was desperately disappointing and that the whole team were hurting in the dressing room.
Speaking to the local media this week, Richard Hibbard expressed his excitement ahead of the West Country derby and that there is an extra spring in the step of the Cherry and Whites ahead of the tough challenge.
With such a short turnaround between the two games, and Gloucester looking to reintegrate several players into the line-up after the Autumn international series, Tom Savage told GRTV that the Cherry and Whites will keep changes to a minimum for the European Rugby Challenge Cup game in Zebre on Saturday.
On a tough evening at Kingsholm, Gloucester could escape neither a suffocating Bath defence, nor the whistle of referee Greg Garner as six penalties and a penalty try paved the way to a 39-16 win for the visitors.
