Gloucester vs Exeter 16-9

Gloucester Rugby


Congratulations to Gloucester for breaking the losing streak!

It wasn’t a classic game, weather conditions were fairly dire, with driving drizzle and rain throughout the fixture.
I think it’s fair to say that both teams butchered scoring opportunities in a scoreless first half, with the wet ball hampering handling efforts.

Come the second half (and another pint of Stowford Press to keep the chill out), Gloucester and Exeter started the scoresheet ticking over, with several penalties keeping Exeter in touch. But a converted try for Glawster and three penalties sealed the match, and the sending off of Jack Nowell made certain of the result.

Naturally, the hinged Harrod UK rugby posts featured strongly in the game, provided a reliable target, even if the kicking was hampered by the gusting wind.
