New signings Patrice Collazo, Ludovic Mercier and Haydn Thomas are all set to make their first appearances of pre-season for Gloucester Rugby in Sunday's final clash of the three day Issoire Tournament.
The fixture against Leeds (5pm kick off local time) also gives Henry Paul the chance to make his comeback following the knee injury that ruled him out of the final weeks of last season.
Collazo joins Mefin Davies and Terry Sigley in the front row for the all-English encounter. Adam Eustace partners Mark Cornwell, with Peter Buxton, Andy Hazell and James Forrester completing the back-row.
