Anthony Allen could be back in the Gloucester A team side tonight.
GLOUCESTER'S Guinness A League team is back in action against Wasps tonight at Dry Leas (7.30pm).
And the Kingsholm side hope to welcome back England Under-21 centre Anthony Allen in a strong side that contains plenty of Premiership experience.
He could be joined by fellow England Under-21 star Ryan Lamb, Rob Thirlby, Mark Cornwell and Quinton Davids.
Gloucester are top of their A League conference and beat Wasps 52-12 at Kingsholm earlier in the season. Gloucester have won five of their seven games and will face a Wasps side who are bottom of the table with only two wins.
Brad Davies will start at stand-off and Jack Forster will get another run at tighthead prop.
"This is obviously another highly important game and we have named a strong and experienced squad," said coach Carl Douglas. "We are going well in the Guinness A League and we are desperate to continue that form."
Gloucester's next home game in the A League is against Saracens on Monday, February 27 (7.30pm) and again the club is offering the incentive of a 'quid a kid' scheme for Under-16s.
Speaking to the local media this week, back row flanker Jacob Rowan said that he is excited for the challenge at the Ricoh Arena this Sunday, and added that the players know the responsibility is theirs to deliver against the league leaders.
Ben Morgan was on media duty this week, and as Gloucester prepare for Sunday's trip to Wasps, the number eight is looking forward to see Gloucester go toe-to-toe with another of the Aviva Premiership's front runners.
Tom Marshall scored his first Gloucester try in the 31-23 win over Saracens on Friday evening and was named Man of the Match. Talking to GRTV, he praised the forwards for setting the tone on the night.
Matt Scott was on media duty this week, and the Scottish international spoke about the benefit of having a full week of training with his club mates and the determination to get back to performing well against Saracens this Friday evening.
After the disappointment of last weekend's performance at Leicester, Director of Rugby David Humphreys told GRTV that he expects a big response from Gloucester in Friday's Aviva Premiership fixture at home to Saracens (kick off 7:45pm).
Gloucester battled bravely against Wasps on Sunday, but it was a case of taking chances at the Ricoh Arena. Gloucester didn't make the most of theirs while Wasps did, and that proved to be the difference.
Gloucester were competitive for long periods at the Ricoh Arena on Sunday afternoon, but were left to rue a host of missed scoring opportunities throughout as Wasps hit back to earn a 35-22 Aviva Premiership win.
Gloucester's Ciaran Knight made his first start at tighthead prop, Henry Walker made his first appearance as a second half replacement and Alex Seville also featured as England U20s might it three from three in the U20s Six Nations with a 46-0 win over Italy in Darlington on Friday night.
