Marshall set for Gloucester Rugby debut

TMarshall-Glouc-1803

New Zealander Tom Marshall will make his Gloucester Rugby debut on Sunday when he lines up at full-back against London Irish, as the Cherry and Whites make five changes to their starting XV from last time out.

Marshall joined Gloucester from Super Rugby's Chiefs last summer but has been rehabbing from knee surgery. However, he is now ready to play his part in the end of season run in.

His inclusion is one of three changes to the back line from last weekend's defeat at Worcester. Callum Braley, who replaced Willi Heinz after just six minutes at Sixways, starts at scrum-half while Henry Trinder takes over from David Halaifonua on the left wing.

There are two changes in the pack. Mariano Galarza comes in for Tom Savage and will partner Jeremy Thrush in the second row, while Lewis Ludlow will start at number eight in place of Ross Moriarty who is on Six Nations duty with Wales.

Meanwhile, amongst the replacements, Gareth Evans is set for just his second appearance of the season and there is a call up for England U18 scrum-half Harry Randall.

Gloucester Rugby:

15. Tom Marshall; 14. Charlie Sharples, 13. Bill Meakes, 12. Billy Twelvetrees (capt), 11. Henry Trinder; 10. James Hook, 9. Callum Braley; 1. Nick Wood, 2. Richard Hibbard, 3. John Afoa; 4. Jeremy Thrush, 5. Mariano Galarza; 6. Sione Kalamafoni, 7. Matt Kvesic, 8. Lewis Ludlow

Replacements:

16. Darren Dawidiuk, 17. Yann Thomas, 18. Paul Doran-Jones, 19. Tom Savage, 20. Gareth Evans, 21. Harry Randall, 22. Mark Atkinson, 23. Rob Cook
