Gloucester have opted to make a few changes to the pack for their sell out Boxing Day clash against London Wasps in the Aviva Premiership.

Watch the Aviva Premiership at ESPN on Monday, December 26 from 1430 GMT.

Gloucester are currently in eighth place on the ladder with 21 points after picking up four wins from their opening 10 matches.

Wasps are also struggling this season and occupy ninth spot on the rankings list after recording four wins as well.

Gloucester prop Nick Wood returns at loose head, while Alasdair Strokosch and Akapusi Qera fill the openside and blindside flankers roles respectively.

Head coach Bryan Redpath has also decided to keep Rory Lawson and Freddie Burns in the halves, while Henry Trinder and Jonny May are back in the centres.

Redpath is desperate for his side to find some form, he said: “We've been playing a little bit nervous and, when games get a little tight, we get a little bit anxious.

"So, this week's been about getting back to what we are and trying to get confidence back. We've been playing well and just not winning.

"It's going to be a real challenge on Boxing Day but one we're really looking forward to. We've won two in a row and, even though they weren't pretty, we'll take some confidence from that."

Wasps fly-half Nick Robinson returns to Kingsholm to square up against his old team for the first time, while Joe Burton starts at number eight in place of the injured John Hart.

The other changes to the starting line-up sees Matt Everard and Ben Broster recover from niggly knocks to start at flanker and prop respectively.

Robinson added: “I know that it is a great place to play and even more so in a Boxing Day game in front of a sell-out crowd.

"Those big occasions are what you play for. The supporters at Kingsholm are very passionate and they are very vocal.

"They have got used to, and expect to see good rugby. We will need a big performance to get a result, as Gloucester are always a formidable side at home."

The home side are firm favourites to win this encounter and can be backed at 2/7 with Paddy Power, while Wasps can be backed at the 5/2 outsiders. The draw is on offer at 22/1.

Handicap betting for this sell out Boxing Day clash has Wasps with a 7.5 point start at 3/4, while Gloucester -7.5 can be backed at 10/11.

This should be a tight affair, mainly dominated in the pack, but you can back Gloucester to take the points by a winning margin of 12 points at 25/1, while a Wasps victory by exactly eights points is on offer at 40/1.
