Gloucester will have a talented young squad on show, for whom this will be a fantastic experience, and a good opportunity to learn and develop by playing regularly against the top players in the country.
Northampton have recently had 10 players named in the U17 and U18 England training squads so there is no questioning the quality of rugby and the level of intensity that the game will provide.
The players have made huge strides since pre season, both as a squad and as individuals, under the guidance of coaching pair Pete Buxton and Geraint Davies, and are relishing the chance to get the Cherry and Whites' league competition off to a flying start.
Kick will be at 11:30am at Hartpury College. Supporters will be most welcome and entrance is free.
