The jury is still out on the new Premiership Cup but there's no doubt that most of us are pleased to see the league back in action with Tigers arriving at Kingsholm for a floodlit Friday .

It's well set with Glaws just one point ahead of Leicester and with Danny Cipriani back from what most believe was an unfortunate suspension  and with something to prove.

It means a move back to inside centre for Mark Atkinson while Ben Morgan will be looking to create his own impression from a very strong looking bench..

Tigers have former Cherry and White Sione Kalamafoni back at number eight and Dan Cole returns at prop.

 Gloucs: 15. Jason Woodward, 14. Matt Banahan, 13. Billy Twelvetrees, 12. Mark Atkinson, 11. Ollie Thorley, 10. Danny Cipriani, 9. Willi Heinz; 1. Josh Hohneck, 2. James Hanson, 3. Fraser Balmain; 4. Tom Savage; 5. Ed Slater (capt); 6. Gareth Evans, 7. Jaco Kriel, 8. Freddie Clarke

Reps: Henry Walker, Val Rapava Ruskin,  Ciaran Knight, Gerbrandt Grobler, Ben Morgan,  Callum Braley,  Henry Trinder  Tom Hudson

Tigers: 15 George Worth, 14 Adam Thompstone,3. Gareth Owen, 12. Kyle Eastmond, 11. Jordan Olowofela, 10. Joe Ford, 9. Ben White; 1. Greg Bateman, 2. Tom Youngs (captain), 3. Dan Cole; 4. Harry Wells, 5. Graham Kitchener; 6. Mike Williams, 7. Guy Thompson, 8. Sione Kalamafoni
