The official Gloucester website rounds up the latest on player fitness after last weekend's completion of the Premiership season.
Phil Vickery and Mike Tindall will both sit out this summer's England and Lions schedule after recent injuries.
Tindall, who joins Gloucester from Bath this summer, underwent a non-urgent, but necessary operation on a shoulder injury this week.
The 26 year-old centre, who missed the final few months of the season with a foot injury, had hoped to return to first team action for the end of season run-in and then possibly the Lions tour.
Once Tindall was ruled out of Bath's remaining fixtures and the Lions campaign it was decided he would have the shoulder operation, that will see the recent Kingsholm recruit return to action fully fit during Gloucester's pre-season.
Gloucester's players are set to start pre-season activities at the end of June, and Tindall will very much be part of the build-up whilst he continues rehabilitation on his shoulder, with the aim to have him available for pre-season games in mid-August.
Phil Vickery was also ruled out of both the Lions and England's Churchill Cup tour through a broken arm that he sustained against Bath in February.
The 29 year-old is continuing his recovery from the fracture, and is also scheduled for a return to full training at the end of June.
Marcel Garvey missed the final run-in of matches with an elbow injury, which he continues to have treatment on.
Henry Paul, who has also been unavailable for the last few weeks of the season, is continuing the rehab work on his knee injury, and should be back to full fitness within the next three to four weeks.
James Parkes injured a wrist earlier in the year and was ruled out of the last few months of the season. The young hooker is also targeting a pre-season return.
Jon Goodridge (shoulder), Jake Boer (broken hand), Terry Fanolua (back), Andy Hazell (head), Simon Amor (hip) and Olly Morgan (hamstring) will all continue their rehab work over the next few weeks in order to be fully fit for the start of pre-season.
Both Morgan and Amor also have international duties, with England U21s and England Sevens respectively, over the summer.
Lloyd Evans will assume a senior role in the Gloucester Rugby squad as they head to Franklin's Gardens for the Singha Premiership Rugby 7s on Friday evening. The exciting Academy fly half spoke to GRTV this week ahead of the season curtain-raiser.
Summer signing Matt Scott met with the local media for the first time this week and said that he's settling in well at Gloucester, that hopes are high for the forthcoming season and that skipper Greig Laidlaw had done a good sales pitch when it came to him signing!
Olly Morgan is heading up Gloucester's Singha Premiership 7s once again this summer and, with the start of the tournament just around the corner, he's looking for some of the club's younger players to make the most of the playing time and the exposure it offers.
The Cherry & Whites are now in their second full week of preseason ahead of the new season, and GRTV caught up with the new Head of Strength & Conditioning Dan Tobin to chat about what is in store, and his first impressions of the club.
Speaking exclusively to GRTV before Wales set off for Twickenham on Friday afternoon, Ross Moriarty chatted about the prospect of taking on England on Sunday as well as the challenge of the subsequent tour to New Zealand.
Brighton is the venue of choice for England this week as the squad have reported for a training camp to prepare for the upcoming international against Wales. GRTV caught up with Gloucester's Matt Kvesic after the first day's training.
Speaking to GRTV after the game, Gloucester Rugby number eight Ben Morgan reflected on the loss to Northampton Saints, and spoke about what he and the team need to do for the new season when the team return after the summer break.
