Gloucester Rugby: Freddie Burns says beware London Welsh backlash
BEWARE the London Welsh backlash, warns Freddie Burns.
Gloucester fly-half Burns believes the Premiership's bottom club will pose a big threat at Kingsholm on Saturday (kick-off 3pm).
The 22-year-old playmaker (pictured) has warned the Cherry and Whites to be mindful of the Exiles' ongoing disciplinary wrangles.
Welsh have been docked five points after the incorrect registration of scrum-half Tyson Keats.

The Oxford-based side are appealing the decision, that centres around the conduct of former team manager Mike Scott.
The points deduction has dropped Welsh below Sale Sharks in the table, adding to their uphill struggle to avoid relegation.
Gloucester will be expected to dispatch Welsh without issue this weekend – but Burns said the Premiership contest will be far from straightforward.
The Bath-born outside-half explained: "I think we definitely need to be wary of their response.
"I don't think it will upset the rhythm of the players or the coaches.
"But it could actually bring them closer together.
"So we've got to be very wary of that, and make sure we are prepared for one of our toughest challenges.
"We've got our full squad back together after the Six Nations and everyone is raring to get going again.
"It always feels like a long time without a game when you get a break like this.
"It might have been a chance to refresh, but now we've got to make that count.
"This is the last push, the last chance to get our game in order.
"We've got everything we need to push for the top-four, now we've just got to get on and do it."
