French hooker Olivier Azam returns to the Gloucester starting line-up for Saturday's Zurich Premiership encounter away at London Irish (Sat 26 Mar, kick off 5pm).
30 year-old Azam, who has been a replacement in the last few games, makes his first start since late October after a shoulder injury.
The French front row man starts ahead of Mefin Davies, who was ruled out late in the week with a dead leg after taking a knock to it during last weekend's Wales game. Azam's fellow hooker and countryman Noel Curnier backs-up from the bench.
Brad Davies and Alex Page form the half-back partnership for the Irish clash, with Andy Gomarsall missing out on the matchday 22. England Sevens captain Simon Amor provides cover from the bench.
James Simpson-Daniel moves back to the wing, and Kiwi centre Nathan Mauger starts in midfield alongside Terry Fanolua.
England open-side Andy Hazell returns to the starting line-up after international duties, and partners captain Adam Balding and Peter Buxton in the back-row.
The Kingsholm Supporters Mutual-organised coaches for supporters leave Kingsholm at 1pm for the match that kicks off at 5pm.
The Clubhouse bar at Kingsholm will open at 1pm on Saturday for the England football match and for the Gloucester game at 5pm.
