Gloucester Rugby have teamed up with Lloyds TSB to help them celebrate the launch of their fantastic new premises in Eastgate Street.
Many will have noticed that the Lloyds TSB branch has recently been closed for some four weeks whilst undergoing major renovation work, showing its strong and continued commitment to the city and local community.
Recognising a shared vision of being pro-active in the community, Lloyds TSB approached Gloucester Rugby to put together a package to mark the official launch day on 10th December.
Although the bank will have been back open for business from the premises for several days, the focus is now firmly on launch day when several members of the Gloucester Rugby first team squad will be joining the staff to meet and greet customers old and new.
Hopefully you can join the players and staff during the late night opening festivities and, if you can, there will be a fantastic prize on offer for eight lucky people!
Yes, there are eight opportunities to win a pair of tickets for a VIP day out in a private box to see the LV= Cup clash when Gloucester take on local rivals Worcester at Kingsholm on 30th January.
Food and drink will be laid on and th ebest view in the house assured as you are hosted by Gloucester Rugby and staff from the Lloyds TSB branch.
In addition, there will be runners up prizes of a signed shirt and a luxury Christmas hamper.
Lloyds TSB also have a national competition running during this period details of which are available at the Eastgate Street branch.
Please do come along on 10th December to take a look at the new branch and meet the players. We look forward to seeing you there.
It's the first Gloucester-Bristol derby at Kingsholm in over eight years this Saturday (kick off 4:30pm) and, previewing the game with the local media this week, Defence Coach Jonny Bell stressed that, with both teams in the bottom half of the table, they both need the points.
Speaking to the local media this week, Gloucester front rower John Afoa knows the challenge ahead this week against Bristol, and calls on the Cherry and Whites to make the most of home advantage as a determined squad look to bounce back from a narrow loss to Saracens.
Tom Savage speaks to GRTV and the local media as Gloucester went down by 24-20 at Saracens on Sunday afternoon. The second row was disappointed with the result, despite a strong showing from the hosts.
Speaking immediately after the game, skipper Willi Heinz thought that Gloucester had executed their game plan reasonably well and competed hard against Saracens. However, it wasn't enough but the squad will have plenty to work on this week ahead of the derby match against Bristol.
Gloucester may be coming off their best win of the season, the 38-16 victory over Wasps last weekend, but Director of Rugby David Humphreys admits that Sunday's trip to Saracens is an even tougher test.
After a series of contract announcements last week, hooker Richard Hibbard is the latest Gloucester Rugby player to commit to a new contract at the club and told GRTV how much he enjoys playing in the Cherry and White of Gloucester.
A try scorer in the 36-18 Aviva Premiership win over Wasps at Kingsholm on Saturday, Charlie Sharples admitted that Gloucester would enjoy the moment but can't get too carried away. The team got what they deserved but the winger wants these performances to be more frequent.
England Head Coach Eddie Jones has made two changes to his side to play Australia in Saturday's final match of the Old Mutual Wealth Series at Twickenham Stadium (kick-off 2.30pm, live on Sky Sports 2). Jonny May lines up on the left wing.
