Matías Alemanno starter and Santiago Socino substitute in Gloucester to receive Bristol

By the tenth date of the Premiership from England, Gloucester will open the day by welcoming Bristol Bears on Kingsholm. The local team will have an Argentine presence with the inclusion of Matías Alemanno in the initial fifteen and Santiago Socino in the bench of the substitutes.

Gloucester, who is sixth in the standings with 23 points, wants to keep his good present and faces the Bears who have a very different reality.

The visiting team is 11th in the standings with 14 goals, three wins and five losses. The good news for Pat Lam is the return to the team of Semi Radradra, one of the visiting figures.
