Back To The Nitty Gritty
By New Cherry
November 16 2018
The jury is still out on the new Premiership Cup but there's no doubt that most of us are pleased to see the league back in action with Tigers arriving at Kingsholm for a floodlit Friday .
It's well set with Glaws just one point ahead of Leicester and with Danny Cipriani back from what most believe was an unfortunate suspension and with something to prove.
It means a move back to inside centre for Mark Atkinson while Ben Morgan will be looking to create his own impression from a very strong looking bench..
Tigers have former Cherry and White Sione Kalamafoni back at number eight and Dan Cole returns at prop.
