Gloucester's fourth Festival of Rugby kicks off on the 29th August, in time for the new season, and runs until the 13th September.
To get another year's rugby off to a great start and mark the fact Gloucester will host a game in the 2015 Rugby World Cup, the City Museum and Art Gallery is running an exhibition throughout the Festival including memorabilia from the 1991 game.
Organisers are asking for memorabilia from the auspicious occasion on the 8th October 1991 or any other interesting rugby items to be donated for the exhibition.
Festival organisers say there are already some special exhibits lined up for this year's display, but are urging fans to come forward to make sure the exhibition is the best yet.
Paul James, leader of Gloucester City Council said: "In common with the rest of the Festival events, we want to make this year's memorabilia exhibition the biggest and best yet. Exhibits can be related to Gloucester Rugby Club or any other local club - programmes, shirts, letters. Everything will be welcomed and credit given."
Any memorabilia loaned will be catalogued by Museum staff and returned at the end of the two-week exhibition. Admission is free and the museum is open 10am-5pm, Tuesday-Saturday.
Items for the Festival can be taken directly to the City Museum and Art Gallery. For more information contact Michael Hunt on 01452 396374 or visit www.gloucester.gov.uk/rugby.
Motu Matu'u is looking to make up for lost time this week as the Cherry and Whites head to Basque Country to take on Bayonne in the European Rugby Challenge Cup opener. The Samoan hooker made his first appearance in the jersey last weekend, and is hoping to contribute to the team this weekend.
Gloucester's attentions turn to Europe this weekend as they travel to Bayonne for their opening fixture of this season's European Rugby Challenge Cup. Forwards Coach Trevor Woodman told GRTV that the Cherry and Whites will be aiming to top their pool as they've done for the past two seasons, but is well aware of how tough it is to win in France.
Although understandably disappointed at seeing victory slip away at the last minute, Ben Morgan said after the game at Exeter that there were plenty of positives that Gloucester could take from the game.
Speaking after a last-gasp try from Exeter earned the Chiefs a 27-27 draw at Sandy Park on Saturday, Charlie Sharples admitted to mixed feelings. The game saw him score a try on his 200th competitive appearance for the club, but the frustration from not closing out the win was clear.
David Humphreys was minutes away from a winning interview on Saturday afternoon, but a late try from Exeter Chiefs meant the points were shared at Sandy Park. Humphreys spoke with the local media after the 27-27 draw.
Speaking to the media ahead of Saturday's Aviva Premiership fixture away at Exeter Chiefs, Director of Rugby David Humphreys reiterated that there are elements of Gloucester's game that are in good shape at present, that the performance against Bath was a step forward from Newcastle but that individual errors are costing the Cherry and Whites dear.
Lesley Vainikolo was a welcome visitor to Kingsholm this week, reminiscing as he wandered around the stadium. The big winger is back in Gloucester to take part in Sunday's Mitsubishi Motors UK Hybrid Cup (kick off 3pm).
Centre Matt Scott, a try-scorer in Bayonne last weekend, insists that Gloucester are taking nothing for granted when they welcome Benetton Treviso to Kingsholm on Saturday in the European Rugby Challenge Cup (kick off 3pm).
