Gloucester's Welsh contingent is back in action this weekend, with Mefin Davies at hooker for the national side, and James Merriman in the U21s set-up.
32 year-old Davies retains his place in the front row for Mike Ruddock's side after some impressive performances as Wales seek to maintain their 100 per cent Six Nations record against the French.
James Merriman, who was on the bench for Gloucester last Saturday, captains Wales U21s, as they also look to continue their bid for a Grandslam, having beaten England and Italy so far.
