Internationals return for derby day fixture between Gloucester and Bath at Kingsholm

All of Gloucester Rugby's Rugby World Cup contingent are back at Kingsholm and straight into the matchday squad for tomorrow's Gallagher Premiership fixture against Bath Rugby at Kingsholm tomorrow night.

It's an all new front row from last weekend's 24-10 defeat to Sale Sharks in Salford.

Argentina's Mayco Vivas starts at loose-head, with George McGuigan and Fraser Balmain joining him up front.

Vivas' Pumas teammate, Matias Alemanno, starts in the second row alongside Freddie Clarke.

Club Captain, Lewis Ludlow comes back into the back row alongside Jack Clement and Albert Tuisue.

Academy graduates, Stephen Varney and George Barton continue their partnership as the half backs, with Seb Atkinson joining last week's captain, Chris Harris, in midfield.

Jonny May and Santi Carreras also return from international duty, they're joined by Ollie Thorley in the back three.

On the bench, Santi Socino, Jamal Ford-Robinson and Kirill Gotovtsev provide strong cover for the front row. Freddie Thomas, our sole try scorer last week, is also in reserve for the forwards, alongside Ben Donnell.

Micky Young, who made his Gloucester Rugby debut last weekend, Max Llewellyn and Wales' Louis Rees-Zammit cover the backs.
