England centre Mike Tindall is set to make his long-awaited debut for Gloucester on Friday.
Tindall has struggled since England's World Cup win
The former Bath centre, a member of England's World Cup-winning side, has had a series of long-term injuries.
Now, after overcoming a shoulder problem, Tindall is in line to play against Viadana in a testimonial for team-mate Mark Cornwell.
Barring further problems, he will take part in Gloucester's first Premiership game, against Worcester on 4 September.
