Gloucester Rugby name team for M5 derby against Worcester Warriors

George Skivington has named Gloucester Rugby’s team for the Cherry and Whites’ Round 11 fixture against Worcester Warriors this Saturday afternoon at Kingsholm.

Jack Singleton, Matias Alemanno, Henry Trinder and Santiago Carreras all return to the starting line up with Jack Stanley and Jack Clement both set to make their first appearances of the year off the bench.

The front row is made up of Alex Seville, Jack Singleton and Fraser Balmain with Ed Slater and Matias Alemanno behind them in the second row. Jordy Reid, Ruan Ackermann and Lewis Ludlow, who keeps the captaincy, make up the backrow.

In the backs, Willi Heinz starts at scrumhalf and will link up with Billy Twelvetrees who keeps the 10 shirt. Tom Seabrook returns at inside centre and is joined by fellow Gloucester Rugby Academy graduate Henry Trinder in the midfield.

Kyle Moyle will start at fullback with Ollie Thorley and Santiago Carreras starting on the wings.

Gloucester Rugby have a strong bench with Santiago Socino, Jamal Ford-Robinson and Jack Stanley named as front row replacements with Alex Craig and Jack Clement also named as back ups on the bench. 

Charlie Chapman, George Barton and Giorgi Kveseladze complete the matchday 23 and are listed as replacements in the backs.

George Skivington said that the focus is on making improvements each week.

“It’s about growing a little bit more from last week. That’s always the plan, to get better every week. The boys came in from the Bath game disappointed not to win so we have to look at what we could have done better, what we could have controlled, and we go on to Worcester, who we fully respect, and we’ll try and be better than we were last week.”
