Tough one this week. Munster away is game to be savoured and if we can get off to a good start who knows. There are no less than eleven first teamers injured including Charlie Sharples so Matt Banahan will be relishing his start.
Munster drew at Sandy Park last week so will go into the game with some confidence as not many sides are getting any kind of result at Exeter even if it was blowing a gale.
The weather on Saturday is unlikely to be a deciding factor - a tropical 18 degress, dry and with a light breeze.
Gloucs: 15 Jason Woodward; 14. Matt Banahan, 13. Billy Twelvetrees, 12. Mark Atkinson, 11. Tom Marshall; 10. Danny Cipriani, 9. Callum Braley; 1. Josh Hohneck, 2. Franco Marais, 3. Fraser Balmain; 4. Tom Savage, 5. Ed Slater (captain); 6. Freddie Clarke, 7. Jake Polledri, 8. Ben Morgan
