If it's Friday night it must mean the league leaders are in town. For the second week we host the side at the top of the tree and we must have a good chance of pulling off an excellent double.

A repeat of the thrilling 24-17 defeat of the Chiefs would be nice ... and with Sarries haing a handful of top players away on international duty the oportunbity is certainly there.

We make two chages from last week's line-up with  Ed Slater in for Tom Savage and Jaco Kriel at openside  with Ruan Ackermann moving to blindside.

On the bench Jake Polledri is back from injury.

Gloucs: 15 Jason Woodward; 14. Tom Marshall, 13. Billy Twelvetrees, 12. Mark Atkinson, 11. Ollie Thorley; 10. Danny Cipriani, 9. Willi Heinz (captain); 1. Josh Hohneck, 2. Franco Marais, 3. Fraser Balmain; 4. Ed Slater, 5. Franco Mostert; 6. Ruan Ackermann, 7. Jaco Kriel, 8. Ben Morgan.

Reps: James Hanson, Paddy McAllister, Ciaran Knight,  Freddie Clarke,  Jake Polledri,  Callum Braley,  Owen Williams,  Matt Banahan.

Saracens have four players in the England squad and make two changes from last week's side with Mike Rhodes returning to the back row.

Sarries: 15 Matt Gallagher; 14 David Strettle, 13 Alex Lozowski, 12 Brad Barritt (captain), 11 Alex Lewington; 10 Alex Goode, 9 Richard Wigglesworth; 1 Richard Barrington, 2 Christopher Tolofua, 3 Vincent Koch; 4 Dom Day, 5 Nick Isiekwe; 6 Mike Rhodes 7 Schalk Burger ,8 Jackson Wray.

Reps:  Tom Woolstencroft, Tiji Lamositele,  Christian Judge, Will Skelton,  Calum Clark, Ben Spencer,  Max Malins, Nick Tompkins
