Gloucester make a number of changes to the starting line-up for Friday's Zurich Premiership clash at Sale.
Andy Hazell (head), Phil Vickery (arm), Marcel Garvey (elbow) and Terry Fanolua (back) are all missing, along with long term injured Henry Paul (knee), Chris Fortey (ankle) and Mark Cornwell (neck).
Mark Foster starts on the wing in place of Marcel Garvey, who injured his elbow against Leeds. The 21 year-old started at inside centre against the Tykes last weekend, and completes a back three of Seti Kiole and Jon Goodridge for the game at the Sharks.
Nathan Mauger comes in to the centres to partner James Simpson-Daniel, with Terry Fanolua still ruled out with a back injury.
Former England U21 fly-half Brad Davies partners Andy Gomarsall at half-back, with Duncan McRae starting from the bench (Gloucester have two overseas players - McRae and Mauger - and regulations state only one can be on the field at one time).
Nick Wood returns to the side in the front row alongside Mefin Davies and Gary Powell, and Adam Eustace and Alex Brown continuing in the second row.
Andy Hazell hasn't recovered from the knock to the head he took in the win over London Irish three weeks ago, and Academy product Luke Narraway wears the number seven shirt. Jake Boer moves from open-side to blind-side.
Captain Adam Balding is also back after missing last weekend against Leeds, with Peter Buxton and James Forrester named on the bench.
The replacements bench is completed with Olivier Azam, Terry Sigley, Alex Page, Duncan McRae and Olly Morgan.

Henry Purdy, a first half replacement for Charlie Sharples, was amongst the try scorers in the 64-19 victory over Aviron Bayonnais on Saturday evening and told GRTV that it was a professional performance, one the team are happy with.
Gloucester's win in Treviso last week means that they need a bonus point win against Bayonne on Saturday evening to secure a home quarter-final (kick off 8pm), but Tim Taylor wants the team to focus on the performance first and foremost.
Billy Burns and Man of the Match Richard Hibbard spoke to GRTV after the 41-0 win in Treviso, on a day when preparations weren't ideal. They felt the team's attitude was key and also praised the travelling support.
Following the conclusion of the Stade Francais vs Harlequins game today, round six is complete and the quarter-finalists in the European Rugby Challenge Cup are now known with Gloucester set to welcome the Cardiff Blues to Kingsholm.
Knowing a bonus point win would secure a home quarter-final, Gloucester completed their European mission in some style on Saturday evening, sweeping aside a spirited but outgunned Aviron Bayonnais scoring 10 tries on their way to a 64-19 victory.
