Team News

George Skivington has picked his side as Gloucester Rugby return to Gallagher Premiership action in Round 9 of the competition against Wasps.

The Cherry and Whites travel to the CBS Arena on Friday night and Gloucester Rugby have named a much-changed side to the team that beat Exeter last time out in the Premiership Rugby Cup.

Kyle Moyle starts at fullback with Ollie Thorley returning to the starting line-up on the wing as Jonny May returns from England duty on the opposite side.

The midfield has an international feel with Mark Atkinson starting in the centres alongside Adam Hasting at fly-half with Billy Twelvetrees at 13. Ben Meehan starts at scrumhalf.

In the forwards, Val Rapava-Ruskin starts at loosehead alongside Jack Singleton and Kirill Gotovtsev in the front row. Matias Alemanno returns to start at lock with Andrew Davidson next to him. Freddie Clarke, Jack Clement and captain Lewis Ludlow make up the backrow.

George Skivington is looking forward to the game.

“Wasps are a serious threat. They were in the final the season before last and they play some exciting rugby. They’ve got some exciting players who can change a game in one moment. I know they’ve got good quality players coming back. I expect it to be a really tough challenge so we’ll do our best to make sure we’re prepared and I expect it to be a hard Friday night.”
