George Skivington would hate to lose against his old side at Kingsholm on Saturday (kick off 4.30 on BT)- London Irish didn't want to lose their forwards coach to the Cherry and Whites and will be wanting to prove a point. It's set up very nicely.
By rights, George should know more tha enough about his old charges to get one over on them.
The team he has selected has five changes from the one which beat Tigers and will include the impressive Jack Clement who keeps his place in the back row.
Lloyd Evans and Stephen Varney will be at half back with Mark Atkinson returning at inside centre. Up front Franco Marais also starts.
Need to win this one if we are to make that top 4.
Gloucs: 15. Jason Woodward 14. Ollie Thorley 13. Chris Harris 12. Mark Atkinson 11. Jonny May 10. Lloyd Evans 9. Stephen Varney 1. Val Rapava-Ruskin 2. Franco Marais 3. Fraser Balmain 4. Ed Slater 5. Matt Garvey 6. Jack Clement 7. Lewis Ludlow (capt) 8. Jake Polledri.
Reps: Jack Singleton, Corne Fourie, Jack Stanley, Ruan Ackermann, Jordy Reid, Joe Simpson, Billy Twelvetrees, Louis Rees-Zammit.
