Fraser Balmain is set to make his 100th Gloucester Rugby appearance as the Cherry and Whites travel to Sandy Park to take on Exeter Chiefs in the Gallagher Premiership on Saturday.

George Skivington has made three changes to the starting line-up that defeated London Irish with Ben Meehan, Jordy Reid and Jamal Ford-Robinson all coming into the 15.

Kyle Moyle starts at fullback with Santiago Carreras and Ollie Thorley on the wings. Giorgi Kveseladze and Billy Twelvetrees link up again in the midfield with Ben Meehan coming in to partner Lloyd Evans at halfback.

Jamal Ford-Robinson, Jack Singleton and Fraser Balmain make up the front row with Freddie Clarke and Matias Alemanno continuing their partnership at lock.

Jordy Reid, Ruan Ackermann and captain Lewis Ludlow make up the backrow.

Santiago Socino, Harry Elrington, Kirill Gotovtsev, Andrew Davidson and Jack Clement are named as forward replacements with Charlie Chapman, Adam Hastings and Tom Seabrook covering the backs.

George Skivington is looking forward to the tough trip to Sandy Park.

“It’s really exciting to go down there. We’ve been on the road a few times and the boys have been extremely focused. You go to Exeter and you know the challenge that they pose. We’ll work hard and do our best.”
