New Decade Starts With Bath
By New Cherry

What better way to start a new decade than with a home game against Bath? It's a five pointer with Gloucs just one point and two places between the sides.
That could have been more if we'd got our just desserts at Saints last week or let's just say "last decade" and move on.
The game has led to changes with a few injuries, but the Gloucs side looks full of attacking potential even if man of the moment Louis Rees-Zammit has to be content to start on the bench. It's a squad game these days - no matter who you are or who you may become.
So we have Jason Woodward returning at full-back with Tom Marshall moving to the right wing. Ollie Thorley has the 11 shirt and Billy Twelvetrees is in the centre.
Fraser Balmain is in for the injured Jamal Ford-Robinson and Ben Morgan is also still injured so the back row will be Freddie Clarke,Jake Polledri and Ruan Ackermann.
Gloucs: 15 Jason Woodward; 14. Tom Marshall, 13. Chris Harris, 12. Billy Twelvetrees, 11. Ollie Thorley; 10. Danny Cipriani, 9. Willi Heinz (captain); 1. Josh Hohneck, 2. Franco Marais, 3. Fraser Balmain; 4. Alex Craig, 5. Franco Mostert; 6. Freddie Clarke, 7. Jake Polledri, 8. Ruan Ackermann.
Reps: Todd Gleave, Alex Seville, Ciaran Knight, Gerbrandt Grobler, Lewis Ludlow, Joe Simpson, Owen Williams, st say ouis Rees-Zammit
