Big Game For Both

Matt Scott

Glaws get an early opportunity to put the Saints defeat behind them with the visit of "lowly" Worcester to Kingsholm. There's a handful of changes with Laidlaw, Matt Scott and Charlie Sharples all returning in the backs ..

A four try win would put the Cherry and Whites some 15 or 16 points clear of second bottom Warriors, while a similar defeat would make us all start looking over our shoulders.

So let's concentrate on getting a win which would elevate us to mid-table with the prospect of kicking on in the remaining nine games.

However, Wuss are not to be taken lightly . If you believe Lawrie Fisher they should be up at the top of the league as his reverse psychology this week branded them "powerful with a couple of big ball carriers, a huge pack, a quality scrum" and the scorers of some "wondeful" tries.
