Gloucester supporters are getting right behind the team for their three home games in January, starting with Sunday's massive Heineken Cup clash against Stade Francais.
The Kingsholm club has only 700 tickets remaining for this weekend's (Sun 16 Jan, KO 3pm) knock-out clash against the French side, with Gloucester aiming for quarter-final qualification.
Bristol Shoguns travel north up the M5 the following week (Sat 22 Jan, KO 2.45pm) for the quarter-final of the Powergen Cup, and there are only 350 tickets (including 100 seats in the main grandstand) remaining before the 13,000 capacity stadium is sold out.
The local derby atmosphere will continue when Worcester travel south down the M5 for the Zurich Premiership fixture on Saturday 29 January (KO 3pm). This game is now a 13,000 sell-out.
Gloucester's next home game after Worcester, is against Bath at Kingsholm on Saturday 19 February (KO 3pm), and this game has also SOLD OUT.
Supporters can purchase the remaining tickets for the Stade Francais and Bristol Shoguns games on-line at www.gloucesterrugbyclub.com or from the ticket hotline on 0871 871 8781.
The Club is advising supporters to purchase tickets for the team's other remaining Premiership home games in advance to avoid disappointment. The other fixtures are Northampton (Sat 12 Mar), Leeds Tykes (Sat 9 April) and Saracens (Sat 30 April).
Speaking to the local media this week, Richard Hibbard expressed his excitement ahead of the West Country derby and that there is an extra spring in the step of the Cherry and Whites ahead of the tough challenge.
With such a short turnaround between the two games, and Gloucester looking to reintegrate several players into the line-up after the Autumn international series, Tom Savage told GRTV that the Cherry and Whites will keep changes to a minimum for the European Rugby Challenge Cup game in Zebre on Saturday.
Gloucester travel to Italy this weekend to take on Zebre in Round Four of the European Rugby Challenge Cup. The Cherry and Whites defeated the Italian side 35-10 last Sunday, but Director of Rugby David Humphreys is looking for an improved performance in the return fixture.
On a tough evening at Kingsholm, Gloucester could escape neither a suffocating Bath defence, nor the whistle of referee Greg Garner as six penalties and a penalty try paved the way to a 39-16 win for the visitors.
Gloucester Rugby welcome Sione Kalamafoni, Greig Laidlaw and Tom Palmer back to the starting line up and feature David Halaifonua in a matchday squad for the first time, as they resume Aviva Premiership action against Bath Rugby at Kingsholm on Saturday (kick off 5:30pm).
