Jake Boer will have the honour of leading Gloucester Rugby into action against the Wallabies at Kingsholm on Tuesday evening (kick off 7:45pm).
It will be Boer's first appearance at Kingsholm since his return to the club from South Africa and he is sure to get a great reaction.
He heads up a reasonably experienced pack which features wise heads in Pierre Capdevielle, Will James and Adam Eustace.
In contrast, it's a reasonably young backline with four of the starters having come through the Gloucester Rugby Academy although there is considerable experience provided by Carlos Spencer, Tom Voyce and Tim Molenaar.
New signing Ben Phillips is named on the bench whilst summer signing Rupert Harden is named in the first team matchday squad for the first time.
There are still a few tickets remaining for the game which are available from the Gloucester Rugby ticket office but please note that the Shed is sold out.
Freddie Burns; Charlie Sharples, Henry Trinder, Tim Molenaar, Tom Voyce; Carlos Spencer, Dave Lewis; Paul Doran-Jones, Darren Dawiduik, Pierre Capdevielle; Will James, Adam Eustace; Jake Boer (captain), Akapusi Qera, Dan Williams
Ben Phillips, Rupert Harden, Dave Attwood, Apo Satala, Jordi Pasqualin, Jonny May, James Simpson-Daniel
