Billy Twelvetrees for England Saxons

Clash: Saxons and Wolfhounds

England Saxons will face the Ireland Wolfhounds at Kingsholm on Saturday, January 25, 2014, it's been confirmed.

The match will renew the Saxons' rivalry with the side they beat 14-10 in Galway last season before they travel to Glasgow to take on Scotland A.

"Gloucester's a great stage for what's going to be a big game between the Saxons and the Ireland Wolfhounds," said Joe Lydon, RFU Head of Elite Player Development.

"There are lots of high-quality players in the England system and they'll be out to put down a marker on the eve of the RBS 6 Nations at the start of a big year for England at every level.

"We get great support in the Westcountry and we'll need that backing against Ireland as the contests between the two teams are always tight."

The Saxons' last appearance at Kingsholm was in June 2011 when Gloucester's Billy Twelvetrees was a try-scorer in the 41-11 win against Tonga.
