The official website rounds up the European Challenge Cup pool draw that was made by ERC on Wednesday.
Gloucester will be up against two French sides and a Romanian outfit in this season's European tournament.
The West Country side have been drawn alongside French sides Toulon, Bayonne and Romanian side Bucuresti.

Pool 2 - Agen, London Irish, Parma, Pau
Pool 3 - Gloucester, Bayonne, Bucuresti, Toulon
Pool 4 - Borders, Brive, Newcastle Falcons, l'Aquila
