Gloucester make a number of changes to the team that travels to NEC Harlequins for Saturday's Zurich Premiership game (Sat 5 Feb, Stoop, kick off 2pm).
Four Kingsholm forwards are involved in the England Vs Wales game in Cardiff on the same day, with Andy Hazell starting for England, James Forrester and Phil Vickery on the bench, and Mefin Davies lining up for Wales.
South African prop Christo Bezuidenhout comes in at loose-head for Gloucester, with Terry Sigley moving to the number three shirt. James Parkes replaces Mefin Davies at hooker, and Frenchman Noel Curnier is named on the bench.
Mark Cornwell starts in the second row alongside Alex Brown, and Peter Buxton starts at blind-side flanker, with captain Jake Boer moving to open-side in place of Hazell.
James Simpson-Daniel makes his return from injury and partners Seti Kiole on the wings. Marcel Garvey misses out due to mumps.
Andy Gomarsall and Henry Paul both returned from England training in the middle of the week and line-up in the Gloucester back line.
