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!"
Brighton is the venue of choice for England this week as the squad have reported for a training camp to prepare for the upcoming international against Wales. GRTV caught up with Gloucester's Matt Kvesic after the first day's training.
Speaking to GRTV after the game, Gloucester Rugby number eight Ben Morgan reflected on the loss to Northampton Saints, and spoke about what he and the team need to do for the new season when the team return after the summer break.
In only his second Aviva Premiership outing, Lloyd Evans scored his first senior try for Gloucester against Northampton Saints on Saturday and told GRTV afterwards that he enjoyed the experience despite finishing on the losing side.
Gloucester will round off their Aviva Premiership campaign on Saturday with a tough finale against Northampton Saints. Director of Rugby David Humphreys told the local media this week that he's pleased with the team's attitude over the past two games and is looking for more of the same.
Speaking to GRTV after the 12-11 Aviva Premiership victory at Sale Sharks on Friday evening, Matt Kvesic described it as a real team effort with several players having to play out of position due to illness and injury in the ranks.
Despite he and a number of his team mates playing out of position, Greig Laidlaw's four penalties were enough to help Gloucester to a 12-11 Aviva Premiership win at Sale on Friday evening. The skipper told GRTV after the game that everyone had played their part, especially the younger players.
