Gloucester Rugby have made a handful of changes to the side that faced Exeter with James Hanson, Alex Craig, Stephen Varney, Alex Seville, Matt Garvey and Billy Twelvetrees all returning to the match day 23.

Val Rapava-Ruskin and Fraser Balmain start at prop with James Hanson coming in at hooker. Ed Slater keeps his position in the second row and is joined by Alex Craig who makes his first start for Gloucester Rugby this season.

The backrow is unchanged with Jordy Reid at blindside flanker, Ruan Ackermann at No.8 and Lewis Ludlow captaining the side from the openside flanker position.

In the backs, Stephen Varney returns to start at scrum-half, linking up with Lloyd Evans who keeps the 10 shirt. In the midfield, Mark Atkinson and Chris Harris continue their centre partnership and the back three outside them is unchanged with Kyle Moyle at fullback and Louis Rees-Zammit and Jonny May on the wings.
