Tom Savage returns to skipper Gloucester
TOM Savage returns to skipper Gloucester against Bath at the Rec on tonight, (Friday) as Gloucester make several changes to the team that started in Munster last weekend.
Only six players are retained in the starting line up from that Heineken Cup encounter in Limerick – the front row of Dan Murphy, Darren Dawidiuk and Rupert Harden as well as Jonny May, Ryan Mills and Mike Tindall in the backs.
Freddie Burns and Matt Kvesic were released from England training camp on Wednesday and are named at fly half and open side flanker respectively.
James Simpson-Daniel will make his 183rd Premiership appearance for Gloucester, and overtakes Peter Buxton in the process to become Gloucester's top appearance maker.
Gloucester Rugby: Rob Cook; James Simpson-Daniel, Mike Tindall, Ryan Mills, Jonny May; Freddie Burns, Jimmy Cowan; Dan Murphy, Darren Dawidiuk, Rupert Harden; Elliott Stooke, James Hudson; Tom Savage (capt), Matt Kvesic, Sione Kalamafoni.
Replacements: Huia Edmonds, Yann Thomas, James Gibbons, Will James, Gareth Evans, Dan Robson, Charlie Sharples, Akapusi Qera
