Gloucester Rugby team for Challenge Cup quarter-final

The Cherry & Whites side to take on Ospreys at Kingsholm tomorrow in the Challenge Cup quarter-final has been named.

Fresh from making his 100th appearance from the bench last weekend, Jamal Ford-Robinson starts at loosehead alongside Seb Blake, who is returning from a minor injury and Kirill Gotovtsev.

The two Freddie's, Clarke & Thomas, start in the second-row again, with Ruan Ackermann, Zach Mercer and skipper, Lewis Ludlow in the back row.

Stephen Varney, who was a late call up to the starting XV last week, keeps his place at scrum-half, with the returning Adam Hastings outside him.

Seb Atkinson and Max Llewellyn are in the midfield with Jake Morris, Jonny May and Santi Carreras in the back three.

On the bench, Santi Socino, Mayco Vivas and Fraser Balmain are in reserve for the front-row, whilst Albert Tuisue and Jack Clement cover the rest of the forwards.

Caolan Englefield, Charlie Atkinson and Chris Harris are the backs replacements.
