After the conclusion of Rugby World Cup pool matches, Gloucester Rugby will kick off their new Aviva Premiership season on Friday 23 October at Kingsholm against 2014/15 Champions, Saracens.
Laurie Fisher joined Gloucester Rugby as Head Coach ahead of the 2014-15 season.
Fisher's arrival from the UC Brumbies is the latest in a line of new faces behind the scenes at Kingsholm, following the announcements of Director of Rugby David Humphreys, Defence Coach John Muggleton and Backs & Attacks Coach Nick Walshe.
The 56 year old moved from his previous role as Director of Rugby at the Brumbies, a role he held since 2012.
Initially appointed as Head Coach of the Brumbies Academy, he became Forwards Coach under David Nucifora and then took over as Head Coach between 2005 and 2008.
Widely regarded as one of the professional game's foremost authorities on forwards play, Fisher oversaw the transformation of the UC Brumbies pack into one of the most impressive in Super Rugby.
