    Gloucester v Harlequins
    Venue: Kingsholm Stadium
    Date: Saturday, 20 September Kick-off: 1500 BST</div>

    Gloucester have no new injury worries after their win at Bath or their A League game earlier this week.

    Olly Barkley (wrist) and Iain Balshaw (groin) are close to returning but are both lacking match practice so could be restricted to a place on the bench.

    Harlequins make only one change to the starting line-up, with Australian fly-half Chris Malone returning.

    He replaces Waisea Luveniyali, who moves to the bench, while Mark Lambert returns as a replacement.

    Gloucester: TBC

    Harlequins: Brown; Strettle, Tiesi, Turner-Hall, Monye, Malone, Care; Jones, Fuga, Ross, Kohn, Robson, Robshaw, Skinner (capt), Easter.
    Replacements: Botha, Lambert, Evans, Guest, Gomarsall, Williams, Luveniyali.

    Gloucester head coach Dean Ryansaid, "There are a lot of similarities [between clubs], where their players have come from, how much patience has been shown around them and therefore hopefully some of the dividend that comes from that.

    "We're probably just a year ahead in that process to where they are but with all their players available they are capable of being a top-level competitor."

    5 - 13 Quins.

    Malone has kicked 1/5! Glos are being murdered by the sound of it. Hope it doesn't cost them like it did Barf.

    It's known as a rhetorical question. :p

    Back to the thread topic - talk about wheels falling off!

    Dean Richards not too happy with the penalty count in the second half after Ryan had words with the ref at half time :ph34r:

    The more I see of Danny Care the more he looks like the future for England.

    *Cha ching*, more bad officiating? David Rose was dire on Friday as was Steve Ganson for your game vs Catalans - he let Wigan get away with murder at the breakdown and was very inconsistent (though it did even up come the end). The teams made for a good spectacle though.

    The refs in the premiership will soon settle down and we'll start to see some good performances from them (I hope!). They've a lot to deal with when you consider the ELV's and the 'protocols' or whatever they've been told to do.

    Ganson however must really hate the French cos he normally blows the pea out of the whistle against us! Happens every year though... once the playoffs begin we suddenly seem to be playing under different rules and the refs let things go that they normally crack down on during the regular season.
