Gloucester welcome back a number of players for Saturday's Zurich Premiership clash against Leeds Tykes at Kingsholm (Sat 9 April, kick off 3pm - Tickets AVAILABLE).
Duncan McRae returns to the number 10 shirt for the first time since the visit to NEC Harlequins at the beginning of February, after coming through 65 minutes of the second team win over Saracens on Monday.
James Simpson-Daniel starts at outside centre after missing the win over London Irish two weeks ago with a virus.
Welsh hooker Mefin Davies makes his first start for Gloucester since his successful Six Nations campaign after recovering from a leg injury.
The 32 year-old lines up alongside Gary Powell (tight-head) and Olivier Azam, who moves to loose-head.
The pack also welcomes back number eight James Forrester, who takes the place of Adam Balding.
25 year-old Balding misses out with a stomach muscle injury picked up against London Irish, and Jake Boer takes over the captaincy.
Boer starts at open-side with England international Andy Hazell ruled out after the knock to the head he picked up in the win at the Madejski Stadium two weeks ago. Peter Buxton completed the back-row at number six.
Alex Page continues at scrum-half, and Andy Gomarsall returns to the matchday squad on the bench, alongside Brad Davies and Mark Foster, who impressed in Monday's Zurich 'A' League win.
As well as Balding and Hazell ruled out, other players unavailable include Phil Vickery (arm), Henry Paul (knee), Chris Fortey (ankle), Mark Cornwell (neck) and James Parkes (wrist).

Fly-half Billy Burns was named Man of the Match after the 35-14 European Rugby Challenge Cup victory over Stade Rochelais on Thursday evening, and was full of praise for all his team mates for the win after a short turnaround.
Gloucester have been in good form in recent weeks, but Backs Coach Tim Taylor knows that the Cherry and Whites will have to be at their best on Thursday evening (kick off 7:45pm) against a Stade Rochelais side flying high this season.
Speaking to GRTV after the bonus point win over Bristol, back row Lewis Ludlow revealed that despite a tricky first half, Gloucester backed their skills to come through, a faith that was evident in a strong second half showing.
Willi Heinz scored Gloucester's second try as the Cherry and Whites overturned a disappointing first 40 minutes and 0-6 half time deficit, to earn a 26-18 Aviva Premiership victory over Bristol Rugby on Saturday.
Gloucester's much changed side had to overcome conceding an early try on Thursday evening, but responded in style to down Stade Rochelais by 35 points to 14 in the European Rugby Challenge Cup and set up a mouthwatering return fixture next weekend.
After taking 11 points from their last three games in the Aviva Premiership, including bonus point wins against Wasps and Bristol, Gloucester will be looking to continue their good form when they welcome La Rochelle to Kingsholm.
