Terry Fanolua is to make his Kingsholm return on Saturday as a number of Gloucester Rugby legends turn out in an exhibition game to raise money for the Samoan Tsunami Appeal.
One of Gloucester's favourite sons of recent history will be part of Junior Paramore's XV which will take on the Cherry Pickers selected by Dave Spencer and Kevin Dunn after the Gloucester versus Newcastle Falcons Guinness Premiership fixture.
Gloucester's community manager Gary Little said:
"Junior has been doing a lot to help the appeal and he is putting together a side featuring some of Gloucester's former Samoans and other contacts of his.
"Terry Fanolua will be here to play against the Cherry Pickers, who I understand are trying to get Mike Teague to make an appearance."
Members of Paramore's extended family were killed in the Tsunami, which engulfed Samoa in September.
The former Kingsholm number eight has since been trying to raise money for the appeal.
There will be a bucket collection at half time of the Gloucester vs Newcastle fixture, during which the launch of the new Gloucester Rugby heritage website will be marked with a parade of legends.
Topping the bill is the Reverend Phillips, who at 99 is thought to be the oldest living Gloucester player.
Other giant names of the Gloucester past who will be present include Phil Blakeway, Malcolm Preedy, Mike Teague, Don Rutherford and Peter Butler, with more recent faces like Trevor Woodman and Phil Vickery also putting in an appearance.
