Not a bad team considering. ..
I think it's going to be a very close game...

Yes now seeing it on paper that is a stronger team than I'd hoped for. I guess we hadn't counted on getting back Kruis and Loz - Nick Isiekwe was always probable. Getting Sean Maitland back as well is real icing on the cake. The away losses at Glaws and Wuss last season were two games that were always going to be difficult but were nonetheless winnable; lets hope this season we can do better.

Feeling far more optimistic about this than a week ago. Still going to be very difficult though.

Another bonus but we also get Tolofua back. Excellent game against Quins in his last run out for us. He will be a big ball carrier when we get to the latter part of the season.

really annoyed that I'm not getting to this match - train only gets me in Gloucester at 19:35 - way too tight

Fancy our chances here with that side. Especially Kruis and Loz with points to prove

they certainly dont have the strongest of sides out especially in the backs

Cracking team, I'm surprised Tolofua is playing but obviously not needed on Saturday and only played 19 mins on Tuesday evening, delighted to see Maitland back.

Away at Kingsholm under the lights makes this a hard match, but I'm being kind in saying IMO that only 1, 2, 8 and 11 from Glaws would make our squad and none of them would start.

I like Ackerman but I don't think he would be near the Saracens squad, not with Wray and Billy and Ben Earl up and coming

I believe we can win this and who knows we may even sneak a TBP

Really nice looking squad. Encouraging and that looks like a bench and a half worth of impact with the front 3 in particular all being very strong carriers.

Will be very interesting to see Skelton and Kruis together and delighted to see Tompkins at 13.

This is an away match that we should be winning in the international period.

It would be disappointing if we didn't win tonight with the side and bench we've put out.

I'm pleased to see Joel on the bench - I think for the first time this season in a proper match? I hope he manages to get himself involved a bit more than we've seen before. Think he's talented and we could have another good player on our hands there, but I'd like to see him be a bit busier around the field.

Hoping for the win tonight, but Glaws seem to put up better performances against better sides. Its the games against mid-table sides they seem to not be interested in

also happier to see Trinder on the wing where his mazy runs will be fewer - he is playing really well this season

Not the easiest run of games till the half way mark: Glaws(a), Ex(h), Quins(a) Tiggs(a). With the internationals away for the first couple and the Clermont double splitting the last pair I'd be happy with two wins from the four, 10 points by Christmas. Hopefully the first victory tonight.

We should be targeting at least 12 points from these games yes tonight will be tougher next week will be tougher but come December with half of our England boys rested.. I'd be targeting a win at the stoop then the two big European games before Xmas Eve in Leicester.. which could go either way but definitely targeting wins in all of them

So Dolph42.... still think only 4 Glaws players would get on your bench?

A very insulting comment and it has come back to bite you.

Why is it insulting - it's an opinion (no expectation of a win). Now we have yours. I don't particularly agree with either but you are both entitled to them. Home games should be won especially with the sort of support there is at Kingsholm. Enjoy it and hope they take it to away games.
