Make sure you stay around to support Gloucester-Hartpury in their Allianz Premier 15s clash after the men's game. 

Ruan Ackermann will captain the side at No.8, with Lewis Ludlow away in England camp, with Jack Clement and Jordy Reid starting alongside him in the backrow.

Freddie Clarke and Matias Alemanno continue their partnership in the second row with Harry Elrington and Santiago Socino coming in to start alongside Fraser Balmain in the front row.

Ben Meehan returns to the starting 15 at scrumhalf with Adam Hastings at 10. Billy Twelvetrees and Tom Seabrook link up in the midfield with Ollie Thorley, Santiago Carreras and Kyle Moyle making up the back three.

George Skivington is expecting a tough test against Northampton.

“It’s great to be back at Kingsholm. It feels like ages since we’ve played here after a couple of away games and a week off. We’re really looking forward to seeing a full crowd.

“Saints play some good rugby. There’s a group of teams in the middle of the table who all have a slightly different way of playing but it’s very competitive.

“Saints have had some unlucky results and they play a good brand of rugby so I think it will be a real fierce battle and hopefully a good spectacle for everybody.”
