No Gloucester players in the England squad so this may well be a good time to face Sarries who have four.

It's Friday night under lights for the big game which means we can all watch England v Australia on Saturday afternoon.

We make quite a few changes in the pack from the side which romped home against Irish last week in the Anglo-Welsh. Ruan Ackermann, Josh Hohneck, Tom Savage and Freddie Clarke all return while Andy Symons is the only change in the backs.

He'll partner Billy in the centre with Henry Trinder switching to the wing.

Sarries have Farrell, Itoje, Mako Vunipola and George in the England 23 but such is theiur buying power these days they've still got a squad of top inernationals to select from with Isiekwe, Kruis and Lozowski all returning from international duty.

Gloucs: 15. Tom Hudson; 14. Ollie Thorley, 13. Billy Twelvetrees, 12. Andy Symons, 11. Henry Trinder; 10. Billy Burns, 9. Willi Heinz (captain); 1. Josh Hohneck, 2. Richard Hibbard, 3. John Afoa; 4. Tom Savage, 5. Ed Slater; 6. Freddie Clarke, 7. Lewis Ludlow, 8. Ruan Ackermann

Reps: James Hanson,  Val Rapava Ruskin, Gareth Denman, Jeremy Thrush,  Jake Polledri,  Ben Vellacott,  Mark Atkinson, . Henry Purdy
