Carlos Spencer and Charlie Sharples are added to the replacements bench.
Revised Gloucester Rugby line up:
Olly Morgan; Tom Voyce, Henry Trinder, Tim Molenaar, Lesley Vainikolo; Freddie Burns, Dave Lewis; Nick Wood, Darren Dawiduik, Greg Somerville; Will James, Dave Attwood; Peter Buxton, Jake Boer, Gareth Delve (capt)

Speaking to the local media this week, David Humphreys insisted that Gloucester are looking forward to kicking off the new European Rugby Challenge Cup against Brive on Thursday evening, although an unfamiliar opponent and a five day turnaround will pose a challenge.
Director of Rugby David Humphreys felt that his Gloucester side put themselves in a position to put Saracens under real pressure at Allianz Park on Saturday, praising his team's commitment and defence, while admitting that a lack of accuracy hit their chances in the second half.
Speaking to the local media at Allianz Park, Tom Savage was disappointed after the defeat at Saracens, but claimed Gloucester did plenty of good things and could've taken more than a losing bonus point.
In case you missed it, there was plenty of activity on the official Gloucester Rugby website following the 55-0 European Rugby Challenge Cup win over CA Brive, including a number of post match video interviews.
The Cherry and Whites ran in seven tries in beating CA Brive 55-0 on Thursday night. An emphatic second half performance saw the hosts run in five tries to get the European campaign off to a flying start.
