The preseason friendly between Gloucester Rugby and Ospreys, originally scheduled to take place at the Liberty Stadium over Bank Holiday weekend in August, has now been switched to Kingsholm.
The provisional fixture date was Saturday August 29th but, when Swansea City's fixtures were announced last week, they were scheduled to play at the Liberty Stadium on the same day.
