Gloucester Rugby travel to London Irish for their latest A League fixture on Monday evening with Henry Trinder (pictured) continuing his comeback from injury with his third start in 11 days.
Trinder started for Moseley in the Championship at Bristol a week last Friday before starting in the A League at Kingsholm against Harlequins last Monday.
Elsewhere, it's a side that relies heavily upon the Academy with the lineup benefitting from only a handful of first team appearances.
Tongiht's game will be a big test against an Irish side featuring Mike Catt and Peter Richards at half back and a number of others boasting significant first team experience.
Stefan Hawley; Reuben Haile, Henry Trinder, Jonny May, Charlie Simpson-Daniel; Freddie Burns, Jordi Pasqualin; Yann Thomas, Ben Phillips, Jack Steadman; Danny Wright, Ed King; Stuart Ebrall, Marcus Brown, Mike Panaho
Adrian Duncan, Levi Smith, Oliver Day, Josh Bennett, Joe Hart, Sam Arnott, Mike Wilcox, Jack Hayes
