NEXT Monday, August 14 and Tuesday 15 Gloucester Rugby are installing a new server and phone system at Kingsholm.
This will mean that our normal email and internet service will be at best intermittent and will only be run on a priority basis.
No emails will be lost but they will arrive over the next 48 hours. It means that online or over the phone ticket service will not be in operation. All supporters wishing to purchase tickets for upcoming matches will need to come to stadium in person.
All emails will be answered but it will take time, so the club ask all supporters to be patient during this time.
There will be engineers on site on Monday and Tuesday, whom will be installing the IP phone system and replacing our current phone system and software.
Gloucester Rugby hope this disruption will be short and the benefits it will bring will be significant, so please be patient.
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.
Gloucester travel to Italy this weekend to take on Zebre in Round Four of the European Rugby Challenge Cup. The Cherry and Whites defeated the Italian side 35-10 last Sunday, but Director of Rugby David Humphreys is looking for an improved performance in the return fixture.
Skipper Billy Twelvetrees, speaking to GRTV after the 35-10 over Zebre, was happy with the bonus point win over the Italian side but admitted Gloucester will need to tighten up for the return fixture in Parma.
Gloucester Rugby welcome Sione Kalamafoni, Greig Laidlaw and Tom Palmer back to the starting line up and feature David Halaifonua in a matchday squad for the first time, as they resume Aviva Premiership action against Bath Rugby at Kingsholm on Saturday (kick off 5:30pm).
