George Skivington has named his side for Gloucester Rugby’s Premiership Rugby Cup semi-final.
In the match day squad, the Cherry and Whites have picked 20 players who are either in or have graduated from the Gloucester Rugby Academy.
Kyle Moyle will offer some experience at fullback with the academy duo of Alex Morgan and Jake Morris out on the wings. Louis Hillman-Cooper and Giorgi Kveseladze link up in the midfield with captain George Barton and Stephen Varney starting at halfback.
In the forwards, Ciaran Knight, Henry Walker and Jamal Ford-Robinson make up the front row with Arthur Clark and Cameron Jordan in the second row. Freddie Thomas, Jack Clement and Jack Bartlett complete the pack and make up the backrow.
The replacements bench is made entirely from Gloucester Rugby Academy players with Seb Blake, Olly Adkins, Bryan O’Connor, Rob Nixon and Josh Gray covering the forwards and Matty Jones, Morgan Adderly-Jones and Reece Dunn covering the backs.
George Skivington is looking forward to the fixture.
“We’re hugely excited to be hosting the Prem Cup semi-final and we feel that it will be a great occasion and opportunity for this group to play in front of a packed-out Kingsholm.
“It’s a really tight group of lads and it’s been great to see them continue their development in the competition this season. We’re looking forward to this fixture and the excitement of a semi-final.”
