The draw was announced today for the first round of the Middlesex Sevens with Gloucester taking on London Irish.
The Middlesex Charity Sevens returns this year with all 12 Premier League teams participating in one of Europe's biggest club 7s events.
It's a full day of fun and running rugby with the Guinness Premiership sides joined by four invitation teams in a knock-out competition.
The team to beat last season was Harlequins who defeated The Army in a nail biting finale, with fine performances from all players. Teams will look to prevent Harlequins retaining the title, as the last time they won they went on to claim five successive titles.
The knock-out format of the day will see first round losers being entered into the Plate competition.
With a total of 22 games, 30,000 fans and fancy dress, the stage is set for an amazing day. This year proceeds are distributed to the PRA Benevolent fund and the RFU Injured Player's Foundation.
Speaking straight after the game, skipper Billy Twelvetrees told GRTV that losing at home to Bath, in front of a tremendous home support, was desperately disappointing and that the whole team were hurting in the dressing room.
Speaking to the local media this week, Richard Hibbard expressed his excitement ahead of the West Country derby and that there is an extra spring in the step of the Cherry and Whites ahead of the tough challenge.
With such a short turnaround between the two games, and Gloucester looking to reintegrate several players into the line-up after the Autumn international series, Tom Savage told GRTV that the Cherry and Whites will keep changes to a minimum for the European Rugby Challenge Cup game in Zebre on Saturday.
On a tough evening at Kingsholm, Gloucester could escape neither a suffocating Bath defence, nor the whistle of referee Greg Garner as six penalties and a penalty try paved the way to a 39-16 win for the visitors.
