There is an opportunity for plenty of Gloucester Rugby's first team squad to catch the eye as A League action returns to Kingsholm on Monday evening with Harlequins the visitors (kick off 7:45pm).
Several of the squad who travelled to Biarritz are involved in the form of Tim Molenaar, Freddie Burns, Adrian Duncan and Pierre Capdevielle whilst Henry Trinder was on Moseley duty at Bristol on Friday evening.
Elsewhere, Ben Phillips and Chris Brightwell are both hoping to impress having played for Birmingham and Solihull so far this season whilst named amongst the replacements is a certain Andy Deacon!

Speaking to the local media this week ahead of the Bath Rugby game, Head Coach Laurie Fisher stressed that the fundamental shape of Gloucester's game is in good shape but that the Cherry and Whites have to look after the ball better and make more of their scoring opportunities.
Skipper for the day Willi Heinz faced the cameras after the 13-18 home loss to Newcastle and expressed real frustration at not being able to back up last week's win at Sale, calling it a performance he and his team-mates are not proud of.
Speaking after the game, Charlie Sharples described it as 'the win that has eluded us.' The winger stressed that Gloucester had stayed positive after the first couple of weeks of the Aviva Premiership season and the 26-13 victory over Sale was a result of that focus.
Gloucester Rugby picked up their first win of the new Aviva Premiership season on Friday night, easing to a 26-13 win on the road at Sale Sharks. Director of Rugby David Humphreys was full of praise for his players on the night.
Greig Laidlaw is back to skipper Gloucester Rugby in Saturday's Aviva Premiership derby game against Bath Rugby at Kingsholm. James Hook will make his first start of the season at full-back and Billy Twelvetrees will make his 100th competitive appearance for the club.
Wednesday evening saw the launch of the Cherry and White Wednesday show on the Drivetime programme on BBC Radio Gloucestershire, with Henry Trinder live in the studio to kick off a regular weekly slot.
