Gloucester Director of Rugby Nigel Davies has opted not to change his starting line up for Sunday's Aviva Premiership fixture against London Irish.
The 12-6 win over the Warriors at Kingsholm moved the Cherry and Whites up to 9th place in the table, and Gloucester will now be looking to finish 2013 on a winning note.
The only changes to Gloucester's matchday squad from last weekend see Will James and Gareth Evans come in for Tom Hicks and Akapusi Qera respectively amongst the replacements.
