Gloucester and London Wasps face each other in Round 8 of the Aviva Premiership at Kingsholm, the only fixture in the tournament that is being played on Saturday, as clubs seek to avoid clashing with the ongoing Autumn international series. Gloucester have been a huge disappointment in the Premiership this season, with just a solitary victory to their credit in the first seven fixtures. A 26-13 success at the Sale Sharks in Round 3. The Cherry and Whites have also drawn two matches, at the Worcester Warriors 23-23 and the Exeter Chiefs 27-27. In total, the West Country club has managed to accumulate 12 points, which leaves them in a lowly tenth position, but fortunately due to Bristol's on field woes, with a 10 point advantage over the bottom of the table side.

If Gloucester Rugby lose on Saturday, it will be a fifth straight loss at Kingsholm Stadium in the Premiership, the first time that they have ever endured such a sequence of results in the tournament. In contrast to their hosts, Wasps have been beaten just once in the Premiership this season, and occupy second spot in the table, a single point behind the reigning Champions, Saracens. That solitary reverse came at Saracens by 14-30 in Round 6. Wasps have won three of their last ten fixtures at Kingsholm, but have not won away from home this season in any tournament, since they beat the Northampton Saints 20-15 at Franklin's Gardens on 24th September.

Gloucester are only in seventh position in the Aviva Premiership table at the end of Round 14, but their recent form has hauled them within six points of Leicester Tigers who occupy the fourth and final play-off spot. The West Country club have won three of their last four Premiership fixtures, the only reverse coming against the reigning Champions and current table leaders, Saracens, at Allianz Park by 12-25 in Round 13. However, on Saturday, they will face a severe test at their Kingsholm Stadium home, where they have lost just once in the last nine outings, a narrow 18-19 loss to the Tigers at the end of January. Wasps, who have collected more points over the last six games than any other side in the tournament are the visitors.

After a run of three successive Premiership defeats, Wasps have now won six games on the trot, and have picked up try-scoring bonus points in three of those wins. As a result of the current run of form, the Coventry based club have risen to third position in the table. On Saturday, London Wasps, who have only lost once away from home in the Premiership since Round 3, when they visited Sale Sharks on January 2nd, will be looking for a seventh consecutive victory over the Cherry and Whites. The last time Gloucester Rugby claimed the points in a match against Wasps, was when they were victorious at Kingsholm in September 2012.

Struggling Gloucester will be hoping that they can give their passionate supporters some festive cheer, when they take on London Wasps on Sunday at Kingsholm Stadium, in the Aviva Premiership. While Wasps found their new home surroundings at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry, much to their liking last weekend, when after a scratchy first half, they put London Irish to the sword, with a 48-16 victory, they have been unable to find anything like their best form when they hit the road. Five home wins in the Premiership make them one of only two clubs with 100% home records this season, but that record has been matched by a 100% losing record on the road. Gloucester Rugby come into the game on the back of a disappointing home defeat to their West Country rivals from Bath last weekend. The Cherry and Whites slipped to a record Premiership defeat at home against Bath, sliding to a 16-39 defeat. Before that result, Gloucester had won three successive games in all competitions.

Wasps have had the better of recent contests between these two clubs, having won four of the last five games between the two, and will hope that they can become the fourth away side to win at Kingsholm Stadium in the last five Premiership fixtures that Gloucester have played at their previously almost impregnable fortress.

Gloucester face Wasps at Kingsholm on Saturday looking to improve on their recent form, that has seen them lose three of their last four games in all competitions. A run that has seen Nigel Davies' side plunge to 11th in the Aviva Premiership table, with only the winless Worcester Warriors lying below them. Davies' Gloucester Rugby had entered the season with high hopes, but have managed to win just two of their league games so far, with just a single win at their own ground, which for so long was an almost impenetrable fortress to visiting teams. Their sole victory at Kingsholm being a 26-24-win against the high-flying Northampton Saints in round three. By contrast, their visitors to the West Country, London Wasps, can point to a recent run, that has seen them beaten just once in their last five fixtures in all tournaments, which was a 12-19 loss at the league leaders, Saracens, in the Premiership in October, and last weekend they scored a confidence boasting victory over Leicester Tigers.

Wasps have to go back to February to find their last away victory in the Premiership, a 17-16 win against Harlequins at the Twickenham Stoop. The last four meetings between the two clubs have all been won by the home side on the day, while the Londoners' have won only once at Kingsholm since 2006, and emphatic 35-6 in October 2009.
