Gloucester unchanged for trip to London Irish

10:00am Saturday 28th December 2013

Following the hard-fought victory over Worcester Warriors, director of rugby Nigel Davies has opted not to change his Gloucester starting line up for Sunday's Aviva Premiership fixture at London Irish.

The 12-6 win over the Warriors at Kingsholm moved the Cherry and Whites up to 9th place in the table, and Gloucester will now be looking to finish 2013 on a winning note.

The only changes to Gloucester's matchday squad from last weekend see Will James and Gareth Evans come in for Tom Hicks and Akapusi Qera respectively amongst the replacements.

Both Premiership fixtures between the clubs last season, unusually, were won by the away side on the day, whilst Gloucester have won on their last two visits to Madejski Stadium in all competitions.

Gloucester: Rob Cook; Charlie Sharples, Henry Trinder, Mike Tindall, Jonny May; Billy Twelvetrees (capt), Jimmy Cowan; Nick Wood, Darren Dawidiuk, Sila Puafisi; Elliott Stooke, James Hudson; Matt Cox, Matt Kvesic, Ben Morgan

Replacements: Huia Edmonds, Yann Thomas, Shaun Knight, Will James, Gareth Evans, Dan Robson, Freddie Burns, Martyn Thomas.
