Could we see some change at the bottom of the Premiership? If everything goes Gloucester’s way, the Cherry and Whites may climb out of the basement spot. Standing in their way is a Saints side who have not played for a month.

For Northampton, Piers Francis and Taqele Naiyaravoro slot back into the backline, and in the pack we see starts for Api Ratuniyarawa and Shaun Adendorff .

Gloucester: Jason Woodward; Santiago Carreras, Billy Twelvetrees, Mark Atkinson, Ollie Thorley; Lloyd Evans , Willi Heinz; Val Rapava-Ruskin, Henry Walker, Fraser Balmain, Matt Garvey, Matias Alemanno, Jordy Reid, Lewis Ludlow (captain), Ruan Ackermann.
