Storm Dennis is on the way for the weekend but we don't care as we take on the Chiefs at Kingsholm in a Friday night spectacular - live on BT if you can't get there .
It's three weeks since the last game and that means Danny Cipriani is free to start in a team skippered by Franco Mostert.
Matt Banahan also starts with Billy Twelvetrees at inside centre.
Only one change up front - Gerbrandt Grobler for Alex Craig in the second row with Ed Slater back and waiting on the bench for a bit of action.
It'll be a toughie against a Chiefs side which is seven points ahead of Gloucs. Thet will feature Scotland captain Stuart Hogg at full-back for Exeter as well as prop Harry Williams who has been released from England's Six Nations training camp.
Chiefs arrive on the back of a rare home defeat - Sale the victors in the last game.
Gloucs: 15Matt Banahan; 14. Louis Rees-Zammit, 13, Chris Harris, 12. Billy Twelvetrees, 11. Tom Marshall; 10. Danny Cipriani, 9. Joe Simpson; 1. Val Rapava-Ruskin, 2. Franco Marais, 3.
