The present regime looks determined to build a settled side with only one change form the starting XV which went down to Quins at Kingsholm last week ..
Billy Twelvetrees takes over from Henry Trinder in the centre with Owen Williams coming in on the bench.
It'll be a difficult task at Wasps speciallyif we keep on giving the ball away. That's the area identified by Johan Ackermann this week as the reason for our poor resukts in the last couple of games, and he knows we can't afford to do it against the dangerous runners which Wasps will field.
Gloucs: 15 Tom Hudson; 14. Charlie Sharples, 13. Billy Twelvetrees, 12. Mark Atkinson, 11. Matt Banahan; 10. Danny Cipriani, 9. Ben Vellacott; 1. Josh Hohneck, 2. James Hanson, 3. Fraser Balmain; 4. Ed Slater (captain), 5. Gerbrandt Grobler; 6. Jake Polledri, 7. Lewis Ludlow, 8. Ben Morgan
Reps: Franco Marais, Alex Seville, Ciaran Knight, Freddie Clarke, Gareth Evans, Callum Braley, Owen Williams, Jason Woodward
Wasps have only lost one league game so far but make eight changes to the side which won at Falcons next week. There's a new front row and fly half and Christian Wade is back
