The Kingsholm Supporters Mutual (KSM) continues its annual evening with the Gloucester and District Society of Rugby Union Referees on Thursday evening (21 April, 7.30pm) at Kingsholm.
The first event was organised by GRSA (Gloucester Rugby Supporter's Association) six years ago and the meetings are always an enjoyable evening, with previous guest speakers including Ed Morrison, Tony Spreadbury, and Chris White.
This year the KSM is pleased to be able to announce that the guest speaker will be Wayne Barnes, a young referee and barrister who has just been appointed to the RFU's elite panel of referees at the age of 25!
The meeting starts at 7.30pm at Kingsholm on Thursday 21 April. Everybody is welcome to attend.
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.
Skipper Billy Twelvetrees, speaking to GRTV after the 35-10 over Zebre, was happy with the bonus point win over the Italian side but admitted Gloucester will need to tighten up for the return fixture in Parma.
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).
