Gloucester Rugby Head Coach Bryan Redpath has made five changes to his starting line up for the visit of the Worcester Warriors to Kingsholm on Saturday (kick-off 3pm).
Three of the changes are in the backs where Eliota Fuimaono-Sapolu and Lesley Vainikolo return whilst Dave Lewis comes in at scrum half for Rory Lawson.
Up front, Adam Eustace is selected to partner Alex Brown in the second row whilst Akapusi Qera features for the first time since the home victory over Newcastle on December 5.
Welsh international scrum half Andy Williams, currently on loan from Moseley with Jordi Pasqualin having temporarily moved in the opposite direction to Billesley Common, is named in the Gloucester matchday squad for the first time.
Meanwhile, hooker Olivier Azam is back for potentially his first appearance since his try scoring contribution at Headingley against Leeds on October 4.
Olly Morgan; Charlie Sharples, James Simpson-Daniel, Eliota Fuimaono-Sapolu, Lesley Vainikolo; Nicky Robinson, Dave Lewis; Nick Wood, Scott Lawson, Greg Somerville; Adam Eustace, Alex Brown; Alasdair Strokosch, Akapusi Qera, Gareth Delve (capt)

Even now Worcester Warrior Ryan Lamb is impressed by the physicality and athleticism of some of Aviva Premiership Rugby's giant forwards and has called on rugby newcomers to witness the intensity first hand.
