International sides, the England Saxons and the Ireland Wolfhounds, will come to blows on Saturday 25 January 2014 at Kingsholm Stadium in Gloucester.
The two development squads are filled to the brim with young talent looking to impress in this clash between old foes.
The Saxon’s squad includes Gloucester players Jonny May, Charlie Sharples and Nick Wood, and Cherry and Whites fans can look forward to cheering on their boys as they hunt for another victory over the Irish team.
Meanwhile, the Wolfhounds will be looking to avenge to the 10-14 defeat they faced last time the two sides met in Galway, in the anticipated clash being broadcast live on Sky Sports.
‘We’re delighted to welcome England Saxons back to Kingsholm for the first time since the Churchill Cup in 2011. We have enjoyed a strong relationship with England Rugby for some time now, having staged both U20s and Saxons matches,’ said Gloucester Rugby CEO, Stephen Vaughan.
‘The Gloucester public loves to come and watch international rugby played at Kingsholm. We’ve hosted a number of international teams over the past few seasons, and they always come out in force to watch.’
With the 2015 Rugby World Cup just two years away, both teams have a lot to play for and this should ensure an exhilarating encounter as they battle to impress their coaches – and the Gloucester crowds, of course.
And with tickets costing from just £8 for adults and £1 for children, until Thursday 23 January 2014, we’re expecting all 16,500 seats to be sold for this anticipated international fixture.
