Games between the two clubs down the years have usually been exciting encounters and this Friday's game promises to be a classic as Gloucester still have their sights on a top four play-off place. They will also be looking to bounce back after losing at home to Biarritz in the Amlin Cup Quarter Finals last Thursday.
Gloucester have won three of their last four Aviva Premiership games and they beat Northampton at Franklins Gardens back in February. Gloucester have two very competent place kickers in Freddie Burns and Rob Cook who between them a 75% success rate.
Sale Sharks have been preparing for this game since the 33-33 draw at London Irish on Easter Sunday where they gained three points.
