Unchanged For Irish


By New Cherry

This doesn't happen very often - Gloucester have announced an unchanged starting XV for the visit of Irish .

That is a very rare thing indeed given coaches' desire to rotate players and injuries.

However, Johan Ackermann has that rare luxury of having last week's lads all still fit and, after that excellent win in Northumberland, he's avoided any temptation to tinker.

Indeed the only change for the visit of the bottom club is on the bench where Will Safe and Matt Scott come in - the latter on his return from the ankle injury he suffered at the start of the season.

Gloucs: 15. Tom Hudson; 14. Henry Purdy, 13. Andy Symons, 12. Billy Twelvetrees, 11. Ollie Thorley; 10. Billy Burns, 9. Willi Heinz (captain); 1. Josh Hohneck, 2. James Hanson, 3. John Afoa; 4. Tom Savage, 5. Jeremy Thrush; 6. Jake Polledri, 7. Lewis Ludlow, 8. Ruan Ackermann

Reps: Richard Hibbard,  Paddy McAllister,  Gareth Denman, Freddie Clarke,  Will Safe,  Ben Vellacott,  Matt Scott,. Mark Atkinson
