England game should be able to be watched from the beginning on either All4 or Amazon, here’s hoping anyway.

Think the game will be close, we really need get stuck in up front and dominate their set piece. A win would be massive, especially given the amount of players we have still to come back into the XV.

I'm hoping that Gloucester underestimate our lack of preparation.

Interesting game, difficult to predict. I don't understand all the hyperbole over this Glouc backline... Atkinson is a decent Premiership 12, nothing more, Cipriani has a 50% chance of actually being up for the game these days, the rest are a few injuries and a few years past their prime. Still a good line up and I'm not saying they are weak or that ours is better, but not one to make you hide behind the sofa in terror. It isn't like we have Radrada and Piutau staring back at us from the other side of the pitch - no disrespect to Atkinson and Sharples, but if they strike fear into the hearts of Tigers, we might as well just pack our bags and sod off to the Championship now.

Both teams have new coaches and both are in poor form. Gloucester's big advantage is that most of their XV have played together for at least a couple of years, whereas our are still getting to know each other.

As RagingBull says, it's a refreshing change to be able to say our back row looks like it could dominate today - it's been a long time since I've thought that!

If our pack are on the back foot then, yes, their backs have the ability to punish us. Simpson and Cips at their best and on the front foot can be as destructive as any 9/10 duo out there. The key for us is to win the territory battle (Wigglesworth should be better at that than Simpson) and at least match their forwards.

I'm going with a Tigers win.

I'll be watching the Tigers game live, and gambling on the England match being viewable straight after on Amazon - I think it will be.
England game is on Channel 4. Set it up to record, watch the Tigers game on BT Sport 2 Extra (red button) and then watch the England game from the start afterwards.. that's my plan anyway. It's a bonus that Channel 4 are showing the England game :smt023

I believe Gloucester will edge this one, but I guess it will be decided by the most "hungry" side. Come on Tigers.

Great tackle on Ludlow by Porter to stop a try

Great bit of initiative by Wigglesworth and Potter.

That's why we have signed Wigg

That pop too Potter was 100% experience.
