Nigel Melville makes four changes to the Gloucester starting line-up for Saturday's 13,000 capacity Powergen Cup quarter-final against Bristol Shoguns at Kingsholm (kick off 2.45pm).
Loose-head prop Terry Sigley and Welsh international hooker Mefin Davies come into the front row alongside Phil Vickery. Both James Parkes and Christo Bezuidenhout move to the bench.
32 year-old Davies missed the last two European games as he signed for Gloucester after the Heineken Cup registration deadline.
Adam Balding starts at number eight in place of James Forrester, and Seti Kiole comes in on the left wing after James Simpson-Daniel was ruled out earlier in the week.
Jon Goodridge and Marcel Garvey continue a superb sequence of appearances that has seen both of them start every single one of Gloucester's 21 games (including this weekend) this season.
Mark Foster comes on to the bench, alongside Nathan Mauger and Alex Page as cover for the backs.
The game is a 13,000 sell-out and tickets sold out two weeks ago. The game will be shown live on BBC1 in the West and West Midlands regions. Supporters outside of these two regions can also watch the match through Sky digital.

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).
