As part of its 150-year celebrations, Gloucester Rugby revealed their Hall of Fame inductees to supporters at half-time of the Barbarians game, which the Cherry and Whites won 35-15.
The nominees were chosen by a panel comprised of Club President, Fred Reed, Ron Etheridge, Bob Timms and supporter Ross Parry, with four players for each position being nominated for the public vote.
The public vote began on 21 August and closed before the first fixture of the season at home to Nottingham Rugby on Saturday 9 September.
