Well, that was tense, wasn’t it?
Gloucester came away from their Kingsholm encounter against the Worcester Warriors with a 24-19 victory but they were made sweat for it as a battling Worcester side kept going until the end, desperately searching for their first win of the season.
It was Worcester’s first point of the season, however, yet it roots them to the bottom of the table, four points off the teams above them who are still to play a game in hand over the weekend. It’s worrying times at Sixways and Gary Gold will have a lot of work on his hands to turn this sinking ship around.
Gloucester on the other hand, bounced back from their defeat at Welford Road last weekend with a crucial victory which brings them up to seventh in the table.
The home side were cruising 24-6 in the second half before Worcester launched their comeback but there was one Gloucester try which really stood out and it was this excellent length of the field effort from the cherry & whites.
Henry Trinder came on as a half-time substitute and almost immediately he carved his way through the Worcester defence in his own 22 before passing to Willi Heinz who then gave the ball back to Trinder who then offloaded over his shoulder to the delighted Billy Twelvetrees who dotted under the posts.
"Henry Trinder playing like Harry Potter!"
What a try and what a start to the second half!

Worcester hit back through a brace of tries from Perry Humphreys, in addition to a penalty from Ryan Mills but although the Warriors were battering away just metres out from the Gloucester line, the ball was knocked forward and the Kingsholm faithful breathed a huge sigh of relief.
