London Welsh v Gloucester - Aviva Premiership match preview
London Welsh will look to make it a hat-trick of Aviva Premiership victories when they take on Gloucester.
The Exiles followed up their win over Exeter with a 29-19 victory against Sale last time out.
And after that success, coach Lyn Jones has made just one change to his starting XV - with Seb Jewell named at full-back and Phil MacKenzie dropping to the bench.
There is a further change among the replacements, with Alfie To'oala preferred to Ed Williamson as back-row cover.
Gloucester boss Nigel Davies has made a trio of alternations to his line-up following the win over Wasps.
Player-coach Mike Tindall replaces the benched Henry Trinder in the backs, while Huia Edmonds and Peter Buxton come into the pack.
Darren Dawidiuk is ruled out with a knee injury, while England No.8 Ben Morgan suffered a dead calf against Wasps.
London Welsh: 15 Seb Jewell, 14 Tom Arscott, 13 Sonny Parker, 12 Hudson Tonga'uiha, 11 Nick Scott, 10 Gordon Ross, 9 Tyson Keats, 8 Ed Jackson, 7 Michael Hills, 6 Daniel Browne, 5 Matt Corker, 4 Jonathan Mills (capt), 3 Paulica Ion, 2 Neil Briggs, 1 Frank Montanella. Replacements: 16 Dan George, 17 Tom Bristow, 18 Arthur Joly, 19 Kirill Kulemin, Alfie To'oala, 21 Nick Runciman, 22 Ryan Davis, 23 Phil MacKenzie.
Gloucester: 15 Rob Cook, 14 Jonny May, 13 Mike Tindall, 12 Billy Twelvetrees, 11 James Simpson-Daniel, 10 Freddie Burns, 9 Dan Robson, 8 Sione Kalamafoni, 7 Andy Hazell, 6 Peter Buxton, 5 Jim Hamilton (capt), 4 Tom Savage, 3 Rupert Harden, 2 Huia Edmonds, 1 Nick Wood.

What they said...
Gloucester director of rugby Nigel Davies
"It's very important that we've got the right mindset going into Sunday to play London Welsh.
"It's going to be a physical encounter. I think that the two sides that they've beaten probably didn't give them enough respect and, because of that, they finished on the wrong end of the result.
"They're a very strong team, a proud side. They've got a lot of points to prove, individually and collectively, and, if you get it wrong against them, they will beat you."
