The RPA have been championing the return of the moustache this month as partners of 'Movember', the charity initiative that aims to change the face of men's health. The Gloucester Rugby squad have been participating - with varying degrees of success!
The phenomenon that is Movember involves men, or 'Mo Bros', with support from 'Mo Sistas', grooming and growing a mo throughout the month formerly known as November to raise money for The Prostate Cancer Charity.
As partners of Movember, the RPA (Rugby Players Association) Benevolent Fund will also receive 20% of all rugby related donations made to the TPCC for Movember throughout the month.
Over 200 players across the Premiership, Championship and beyond have signed up to become citizens of Movember and are now into the final week of their mo growing month showcasing a range of mo styles for all to see.
With the end of the month in sight, the race is on amongst the players to raise the most money for Movember.
The Gloucester Rugby Mo Bros would love your support to help them challenge for that top of the Prem position.
To sponsor a player or a team, and support two great charities, visit Movember.com and search for your chosen player to sponsor him on line.
You can sponsor the whole team by clicking on the team icon next to any player's Movember profile.
NB. Don't leave it too late, but you can continue to sponsor your favourite Mo Bros into December and beyond at http://uk.movember.com
Speaking to the local media this week, back row flanker Jacob Rowan said that he is excited for the challenge at the Ricoh Arena this Sunday, and added that the players know the responsibility is theirs to deliver against the league leaders.
Ben Morgan was on media duty this week, and as Gloucester prepare for Sunday's trip to Wasps, the number eight is looking forward to see Gloucester go toe-to-toe with another of the Aviva Premiership's front runners.
Tom Marshall scored his first Gloucester try in the 31-23 win over Saracens on Friday evening and was named Man of the Match. Talking to GRTV, he praised the forwards for setting the tone on the night.
Matt Scott was on media duty this week, and the Scottish international spoke about the benefit of having a full week of training with his club mates and the determination to get back to performing well against Saracens this Friday evening.
Last Friday night saw Gloucester Rugby Head of Community Adam Balding present a cheque for £7082.82 to the Royal British Legion as a result of a series of fundraising during the Remembrance Period in November.
Gloucester battled bravely against Wasps on Sunday, but it was a case of taking chances at the Ricoh Arena. Gloucester didn't make the most of theirs while Wasps did, and that proved to be the difference.
Gloucester were competitive for long periods at the Ricoh Arena on Sunday afternoon, but were left to rue a host of missed scoring opportunities throughout as Wasps hit back to earn a 35-22 Aviva Premiership win.
Gloucester's Ciaran Knight made his first start at tighthead prop, Henry Walker made his first appearance as a second half replacement and Alex Seville also featured as England U20s might it three from three in the U20s Six Nations with a 46-0 win over Italy in Darlington on Friday night.
