GLOUCESTER LOOKING GOOD
Gloucester were in great shape and form as they took on their rivals London Wasps at Kingsholm.
They played brilliantly and thrashed their opponents thirty nine to ten in the Aviva Premiership. They played some exceptional rugby to thrash the Wasps heavily in the much awaited fixture.
This great win now places Gloucester at the fifth place in the league while the embarrassing loss for the London Wasps saw them drop down to the ninth spot in the league table.
Gloucester made a strong start to the match as they sent Luke Narraway over for the very first try only after the first five minutes. Jonny May then followed suit in the fourteenth minute itself.
They dominated the match right from the start and though the London Wasps were in contention, it was Gloucester that always looked more threatening. Though the Wasps did make a comeback before the first half finished, it was still Gloucester that led the score board nineteen to ten at the break.
The second half was completely dominated by Gloucester as they tore their rivals apart by adding another twenty points. The side looked motivated and connected well with each other.
They also defended superbly and made sure that London Wasps did not add to their points tally. They did not allow their opponents breathing space also and hence restricted and defended their movements well.
After the half time, Freddie Burns kicked a great penalty and then Trinder beat Simpson to touch down thus extending their lead over the rivals to a great seventeen points.
The Wasps looked morally beaten as they knew that a comeback from this point was impossible even though there were thirty minutes still left to play. Thus having broken the rivals, Gloucester continued on mercilessly and ended the match at thirty nine to ten, having convincingly won the match and reduced the rivals to dust.
