GLOUCESTER RUGBY Heinz set for 100th club appearance

Gloucester RugbyWilli Heinz is set to make his 100th Gloucester Rugby appearance tonight as the Cherry and Whites host London Irish at Kingsholm 1945ko.

Recently announced British and Irish Lion, Chris Harris, returns to Gloucester Rugby’s line up along with fellow Scotland international Alex Craig. Ben Morgan’s inclusion at No.8 is the only other change to the starting side that took to the field last time out.

Lewis Ludlow resumes the captaincy at openside flanker alongside Ruan Ackermann who shifts to the blindside as Morgan starts at No.8.

Head Coach George Skivington is looking forward to the fixture: "A lot of the hard work has been put in over the last 10 months and there have been some big shifts in certain areas and I think we are seeing it start to come together.

"The challenge for us is to see what we can deliver in the last three games and hopefully end the season with some real confidence."
