Team News

Gloucester Rugby host Wasps at Kingsholm on Saturday and George Skivington has named a strong side for the Gallagher Premiership encounter.

Jack Singleton returns to the team at hooker for the first time since Leicester and will pack down with Val Rapava-Ruskin and Fraser Balmain in the front row.

Freddie Clarke and Matias Alemanno continue their five-game streak as second row partners with Jordy Reid, Ruan Ackermann and captain Lewis Ludlow making up the backrow.

In the backs, Kyle Moyle starts at fullback with Louis Rees-Zammit and Santiago Carreras on the wings. Mark Atkinson and Chris Harris link up in the midfield with Adam Hastings and Ben Meehan at half back.

There is an exciting list of replacements with Ben Morgan and Kirill Gotovtsev both set to feature off the bench after time away with injury.

Skivington is looking forward to getting back out at Kingsholm.

“Wasps had a good result against Newcastle. A tight game, but they battled through and won it. They are a good outfit and they’ve got some good coaches and I think they are a real threat.

“From our point of view, we are focused on ourselves. We know the bits we’ve got to push hard on and the bits we’ve got to work on and we’re focused on getting right what we can and obviously nullifying Wasps’ threats.

“We haven’t been here in what feels like forever so we’re really excited to get back here and hopefully everyone gets here and screams loud and the boys will give you all something to be proud of.”
