Skipper Hinz

Always wondered what the coaches thought was our strongest team. Well now we know as they've mnade half a dozen changes for the side which will try to save our season on the Murrayfield turf on Friday night (kick off 8.00) . ...

Any Cup Final is special but this one against Stade Francais will be even more so with the chance of Euro Championship rugby in the sights of the winner.

That doesn't just mean money it means the club can attract better players who want the big stage.

The changes from the side which lost at Bath last week are not too surprising. Willi Heinz returns to skipper and to give Greg Laidlaw the opportunity to come off the bench at his national stadium for his Glaws swansong... wouldn't it be good if he did so and got the winning points?

Also in the backs Billy Burns and Tom Marshall both return,  while Matt Scott will return to the ground where he has played both club and national rugby.

In the pack Josh Hohneck replaces Paddy McAllister and Jeremy Thrush is in for Mariano Galarza. Ross Moriarty returns in the back row.

Gloucs: 15. Tom Marshall; 14. Charlie Sharples, 13. Matt Scott, 12. Mark Atkinson, 11. Jonny May; 10. Billy Burns, 9. Willi Heinz (capt); 1. Josh Hohneck, 2. Richard Hibbard, 3. John Afoa; 4. Tom Savage, 5. Jeremy Thrush; 6. Ross Moriarty, 7. Lewis Ludlow, 8. Ben Morgan.

Reps: 16. Darren Dawidiuk, 17. Yann Thomas, 18. Paddy McAllister, 19. Mariano Galarza, 20. Freddie Clarke, 21. G

Good luck tonight from Yorkshire.
I note ex-tyke Jacob Rowan is not in the side - is it lack of form or an injury?
