Luke Narraway comes into the back row for Gloucester's Zurich Wild Card semi-final against Newcastle at Kingsholm on Sunday (Sun 8 May, Kingsholm, kick off 3.15pm - Tickets AVAILABLE).
The 21 year-old flanker replaces the injured Andy Hazell, who misses out after taking a knock to the head against Saracens last weekend.
Narraway started Gloucester's last clash with the Falcons at the end of February at Kingston Park and scored the team's fourth try in the 27-27 draw.
Seti Kiole returns to the wing after missing last Saturday's game through injury. He joins a reshuffled back three.
Jon Goodridge misses his first competitive fixture of the season with a shoulder injury that saw him go off after half an hour against Saracens, and Marcel Garvey is still absent with an elbow injury.
19 year-old England U21 Olly Morgan starts at full-back, with James Bailey staying on the wing after an impressive performance in last week's final league clash.
Director of rugby Nigel Melville and coach Dean Ryan have the final team run through on Saturday morning, when a few of the players will look to come through after a number of niggles caused disruption this week.
Jon Goodridge and Marcel Garvey are joined on the sidelines by Phil Vickery (broken arm), Mark Cornwell (neck), Chris Fortey (ankle), James Parkes (wrist) and Henry Paul (knee).

Speaking to GRTV after the game, Backs Coach Tim Taylor was happy with the squad as they cruised to victory over Treviso. The result wasn't in doubt, but the Cherry and Whites laboured to secure a crucial try bonus point.
Speaking to the local media this week, Gloucester Rugby centre Matt Scott is excited to take the field again as the Cherry and Whites look to build on the win in Bayonne when Treviso come to Kingsholm this Saturday.
Defence Coach Jonny Bell admitted this week that the European Rugby Challenge Cup victory in Bayonne was a welcome one, stressed that Benetton Treviso will pose a tough test on Saturday at Kingsholm but that Gloucester are determined to deliver in front of their own fans.
Motu Matu'u is looking to make up for lost time this week as the Cherry and Whites head to Basque Country to take on Bayonne in the European Rugby Challenge Cup opener. The Samoan hooker made his first appearance in the jersey last weekend, and is hoping to contribute to the team this weekend.
Gloucester's attentions turn to Europe this weekend as they travel to Bayonne for their opening fixture of this season's European Rugby Challenge Cup. Forwards Coach Trevor Woodman told GRTV that the Cherry and Whites will be aiming to top their pool as they've done for the past two seasons, but is well aware of how tough it is to win in France.
Although understandably disappointed at seeing victory slip away at the last minute, Ben Morgan said after the game at Exeter that there were plenty of positives that Gloucester could take from the game.
Speaking after a last-gasp try from Exeter earned the Chiefs a 27-27 draw at Sandy Park on Saturday, Charlie Sharples admitted to mixed feelings. The game saw him score a try on his 200th competitive appearance for the club, but the frustration from not closing out the win was clear.
Gloucester made it two wins from two outings in this season's European Rugby Challenge Cup as they outplayed Benetton Treviso at Kingsholm to win by 37 points to 8, the bonus point try coming with the final play of the game.
