True, Tigers’ wins in Gloucester are rarer than hens’ teeth, so I’ll not be too optimistic, even an lbp. However, if the internet streaming works better than the game against Irish, I’ll be encouraging them armed with a glass of rouge 🍷!

To be honest, I’m still dining out on the semi final win of a few years ago at Kingsholm when Goodey dropped that goal to win it. What a day/night that was. Then in more recent times when we were around 25 points down and came back to win it. Happy days !

Development team but plenty of strength on the bench.

If we can be in touch after an hour... you never know

Sunday’s final game between Gloucester Rugby and Leicester Tigers will be officiated by Matthew Carley as Jack Makepeace and Paul Dix run the line at Kingsholm – Claire Hodnett in the van as the TMO.

Well the coaches are certainly sticking to squad rotation - 17 changes in the match day squad from Weds.
Congrats to Thom Smith at 7 and named as captain - shows a bit of faith!

Up against a vastly more experienced Glaws squad. Don't expect any other result than a home win, but the performance is everything.

Lewis must not be 100% fit IMO.

I like the balance of the backs.
Nice to see Kelly on the bench.

Pack will get munched though.

Doesn’t seem to be much back 3 cover on the bench?

Particularly given Worth can cover centre I’d have thought there would have been another back 3 player on the bench instead of another centre.

Porter plays 15 and wing also.

Could also see Ford and Henry on the pitch towards the end as another option.

Seriously anybody coming in claiming we are relegation certainties and we are a disgrace after we lose on Sunday need to look at themselves.

Why are we having 2 internationals Tomás Lavanini & Blake Enever staying with is arguably a second team and not seeing them get a run with the first team?
