IT IS fully intended that tonight's Guinness Premiership match between Gloucester Rugby and Newcastle Falcons will go ahead. However, there will be a pitch inspection at 4.30pm by referee Rob Debney owing to the fog.
The inspection will take place with the floodlights on to try and best recreate match conditions in and around the stadium.
News of the inspection will be made as soon as possible after it has been conducted, and Gloucester Rugby apologise for any inconvenience or uncertainty in the meantime and ask supporters to keep in touch on the website at www.gloucesterrugby.co.uk and the local media for updates.
Henry Purdy scored two memorable tries against London Welsh at Kingsholm on Saturday, and attributed the first one to hard work on the training ground before describing how much he's enjoying playing his rugby alongside friends like Callum Braley.
Gloucester face London Welsh for the third time this season when they meet at Kingsholm in the Aviva Premiership on Saturday (kick off 3pm), but Director of Rugby David Humphreys insists his team are prepared for a tough game against the Exiles.
Billy Burns was a late call up to the Gloucester team that lost narrowly to the Leicester Tigers at Welford Road on Friday evening and, speaking to GRTV post match, was full of praise for his team-mates but admitted that defeat was tough to take.
Speaking after what he described as an 'arm wrestle' up front, skipper Tom Savage couldn't fault his side's effort and commitment on the night at Welford Road but insisted that his side will keep on battling, starting at home to London Welsh next weekend.
A number of the Gloucester Rugby squad this week benefitted from an initiative organised by Circle 2 Success (C2S) and the Rugby Players Association (RPA) to help players develop their business planning skills.
