Jake Boer will have his ankle injury assessed this week
JAKE BOER and Marcel Garvey will have x-rays on the ankle injuries they sustained against London Irish this week.
Boer, who was replaced after only 11 minutes during Gloucester's 25-10 defeat, will have an x-ray to assess the damage to his right ankle, while Garvey has damaged his left one.
The flanker was making his return from a toe injury he sustained against Northampton earlier in the season while Garvey was selected on the wing for a Guinness Premiership match for the first time this season.
Patrice Collazo, who was also withdrawn at the Madejski Stadium with a back injury, will be assessed this week by Gloucester's medical staff.
Speaking to the local media this week ahead of the Bath Rugby game, Head Coach Laurie Fisher stressed that the fundamental shape of Gloucester's game is in good shape but that the Cherry and Whites have to look after the ball better and make more of their scoring opportunities.
Skipper for the day Willi Heinz faced the cameras after the 13-18 home loss to Newcastle and expressed real frustration at not being able to back up last week's win at Sale, calling it a performance he and his team-mates are not proud of.
Speaking after the game, Charlie Sharples described it as 'the win that has eluded us.' The winger stressed that Gloucester had stayed positive after the first couple of weeks of the Aviva Premiership season and the 26-13 victory over Sale was a result of that focus.
Gloucester Rugby picked up their first win of the new Aviva Premiership season on Friday night, easing to a 26-13 win on the road at Sale Sharks. Director of Rugby David Humphreys was full of praise for his players on the night.
Greig Laidlaw is back to skipper Gloucester Rugby in Saturday's Aviva Premiership derby game against Bath Rugby at Kingsholm. James Hook will make his first start of the season at full-back and Billy Twelvetrees will make his 100th competitive appearance for the club.
Wednesday evening saw the launch of the Cherry and White Wednesday show on the Drivetime programme on BBC Radio Gloucestershire, with Henry Trinder live in the studio to kick off a regular weekly slot.
