Brief Rugby Post

I am overjoyed to see the city club continue its fine unbeaten run and away to Leicester too. With the Tigers’ impressive home record, any points snuck away from Welford Road are welcome. Importantly not many of our rivals for the top places in the league will win or draw at the historic East Midlands venue so we have stolen a march on them albeit in a small way. All these advantages add up at the end of the season though. As ever on drawing, one feels a slight pang of regret that the lads didn’t go the whole way and bag a wondrous victory but such thoughts are a touch churlish when the Gloucester engine is running so smoothly. We’re not quite in ‘We’ve never had it so good’ territory but are certainly approaching it.
