Thanks Ken, I can't remember with what regard his father was held by Glos fans, but no doubt his son is an excellent ref !

Nigel Whitehouse refereed the Challenge Cup final v London Irish, if I recall correctly.

Good little player. Believe he went (back) to Sale and retired fairly early with a bad neck injury.

Son of a northern cow farmer, excellent young prop who went back up north to Sale in 2009 and soon retired due to a neck injury (aged about 24).

Toulouse play brilliant rugby. Thankfully they will be without Kolbe. I think Dupont at 9 and Guitoine at 13 are ones to watch. Hopefully we can give them a good run for their money. I recall them keeping racing out in Paris for 50 minutes with 14 men. Fridays at CG are special and let's hope another one is in the offering!

It will be tough - especially in the tight - if we play like we did on Saturday.

Of all the French teams Toulouse are the one who can travel.

Some Gloucester 'Dawg will be needed + a very large and raucous Friday night crowd.

+1, but remember Jan 2012. Not many thought we would beat them then. We need a very noisy crowd on Friday who are right behind the team for 80+ minutes. I have a good feeling ......!
