Fans return to Kingsholm for this Premiership encounter

Gloucester v Harlequins live stream: How to watch the Premiership match online from anywhere

Up to 1000 lucky people will be in the ground tonight as Kingsholm becomes the second crowd pilot match in England after the Stoop hosted fans for a Gallagher Premiership match earlier in September.

So everyone will be hoping they can put on a show. Jet-heeled Louis Rees-Zammit starts at full-back for the Cherry and Whites, with Ollie Thorley and Jonny May making up an exciting back-three. The Glaws faithful will also hope Stephen Varney can continue his form from nine. He lines up alongside playmaker Danny Cipriani.

On the bench, big Pumas lock Matias Alemanno could make his debut.

There are some Springbok-themed headlines for Quins. Bok lock Stephan Lewies skippers the side, 13-cap prop Wilco Louw could make his debut if he comes off the bench, and centre Andre Esterhuizen could make his second appearance, having got his first run-out las week.

England wing Chris Ashton will reach 150 Premiership appearances if he makes it onto the park too.

Gloucester: Louis Rees-Zammit; Ollie Thorley, Chris Harris, Mark Atkinson, Jonny May; Danny Cipriani, Stephen Varney; Val Rapava-Ruskin, Franco Marais, Jack Stanley, Ed Slater, Matt Garvey, Jack Clement, Lewis Ludlow (captain), Jake Polledri.
