Gloucester Rugby host Worcester Warriors in the Premiership Rugby Cup semi-final on Wednesday 27 April, 7:45pm.
George Skivington is looking forward to seeing how his Cherry and White side will do against a full-strength Warriors.
On the semi-final
“We’ve got Worcester tomorrow night and the young lads who are playing that game have earned the right to play in that semi-final. They’re the team that got us to the semi-final, so they’ve earned the right to play in it.
“I’m really excited about this young group. They work extremely hard and are a very tight group. Some of them have been together since youth rugby and have come up together. They work very hard and I think this is a just reward for their work all year. They put us in the semi, so they get to represent the club.”
On facing a full strength Worcester
“Worcester have obviously picked the strongest team, which is a Premiership team, which is good for our young lads. They’re going to play against a full-strength Worcester and they’ve got a British Lion on the wing so it’s going to be a really tough evening. It’s good for our young guys to get tested against a Premiership team.
“There hasn’t been a huge amount of rugby for younger players this season. Our lads have been outstanding in the Premiership Cup and in the little appearances they’ve had in the Premiership and Europe. They’ve stood up and there are some great characters in there. It’ll be a great test for them.”
On the young group coming through
“Our plan is to bring through young, English, Gloucester players. That’s what we want to do and that’s what we’re excited about. That’s the route we’re going down as a club and from that point of view, they get a taste of a semi-final tomorrow and they’ll go really hard. They’re up against a fully loaded Premiership outlet so from a development point of view, it’s good for them. They’ll get a real taste of what it’s like in the Premiership.”
On a semi-final at Kingsholm
“It's great to have a semi-final here at Kingsholm. The supporters will hopefully really enjoy it and will get to see some of the young talent that is coming through and any sort of knock out rugby that we can get at Kingsholm, we want to get as much as we can over the coming seasons. This is the first one and we’re looking forward to it.”
