Ahead of Saturday afternoon's home fixture against Sale Sharks (Kingsholm, kick off 3pm), the new replica away shirt will be on sale in the club shop.
The shirt has already been worn by the first team in the JP Morgan 7s, World Club 7s and in the preseason friendlies against Munster and Plymouth Albion.
The brand new design, which features pink and blue hoops, already seems to be a winner based on supporter feedback.
There will be limited numbers available, and they will be sold on a first come, first served basis. Adult shirts cost £50 (sizes Small to XXXL) and children's shirts cost £35 (sizes Small Boy to Youth).
The brand new home replica shirt will be on general sale next week.
Skipper Billy Twelvetrees admitted that the Gloucester squad were disappointed and frustrated after losing at home to Exeter, regretting that Gloucester's own errors had given the Chiefs the upper hand.
David Humphreys spoke to the local press after the Gloucester Rugby team to face Exeter Chiefs on Friday was announced. Henry Purdy is making his Premiership debut for Gloucester and thoroughly deserves his chance says Humphreys.
Dan Murphy was part of a Gloucester pack which took a grip as the Sale game progressed and, ultimately, were rewarded with a late penalty try. The loose head prop says the team's improved scrummaging is down to a lot of hard work over the summer.
Gloucester clinched their first Aviva Premiership win of the season on Saturday, 34-27 over Sale Sharks, and scrum half Greig Laidlaw felt that the Kingsholm crowd played a massive part as they spurred the team on.
David Humphreys spoke to Gloucester Rugby TV after the 34-27 win over Sale Sharks at Kingsholm. The Director of Rugby praised the Kingsholm crowd for spurring the team on to a super second half comeback.
