I ventured to Sixways Stadium, the home of Worcester, er, Warriors yesterday and rather regret doing so. My favoured team Gloucester spurned numerous chances to cross the whitewash and produce a five point scoring act; the Kingsholm fifteen’s domination meant nothing as a lack of coherent game plan coupled with the hosts’ ability to make the most of what few opportunities came their way meant that the afternoon ended in bitter disappointment. This 14-10 reverse surely prevents Gloucester from finishing in first or second place in the league thus denying ‘the lads’ a home semi-final in the end-of-season play-offs. It was all a bit shoddy. Losing to a weaker team always rankles.
