At the start of the weekend, Gloucester still had a narrow chance of qualifying, however, this is no longer the case because of other results from the weekend.
Saracens took the fourth qualifying spot coming second in pool two with a better points difference.
Even if Gloucester attain a bonus point victory tonight, they won’t have enough points to over take Saracens.
Gloucester will field a team that boasts 24 academy players. The only one not to be from the academy is Matt Banahan.
