Olly Morgan and Nick Wood were both named this week in the England 2009 summer tour squad and the Gloucester full back was understandably delighted when he spoke to the club website today.
Morgan, of course, was first capped against Scotland in the 2007 RBS Six Nations Championship and followed that up with a second appearance against Ireland.
Injury, however, has kept him out of the international reckoning since then but his fine club form for Gloucester in recent months has resulted in his inclusion this summer and he is certainly looking forward to the prospect.
"It's great news. I was obviously disappointed that injuries forced me out when I was just starting out on my international career. But, I'm back in the loop now and, hopefully, it'll go better this time around."
"There's great competition in the squad. I'll be vying for a place with the likes of Delon Armitage, Ben Foden and Mathew Tait but you expect that at this level and you just have to give your best and hope it's enough."
"The three games are interesting. The Barbarians is traditionally a great spectacle. I've been doing quite a bit of training with Balsh (Iain Balshaw) so it'd be interesting to come up against him!"
"And it's not often you get the chance to play home and away against Argentina particularly with the home game being at Old Trafford. It's not often you get the chance to play rugby there."
"Argentina are renowned for being quite a physical side but I think Woody (Nick Wood) will experience more of that than me!"
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.
After the disappointment of last weekend's performance at Leicester, Director of Rugby David Humphreys told GRTV that he expects a big response from Gloucester in Friday's Aviva Premiership fixture at home to Saracens (kick off 7:45pm).
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.
