Do Gloucester Rugby Want to Defend Their Challenge Cup Title?

|

After a hard fought 33-20 victory in La Rochelle on Thursday evening that followed a comfortable 23-10 win over Zebre last week, Gloucester extended their winning run in the Challenge Cup to 11 games. That coupled with Zebre’s victory over Worcester on Saturday leaves the Cherry and Whites top and four points clear in Pool […] READ MORE


Gloucester Rugby : A Familiar Away Day Performance

|

It’s never easy supporting Gloucester Rugby. After a big, if not entirely comfortable, opening night victory away at Newcastle Falcons, and a narrow defeat to league leaders Saracens, you may have forgiven us Cherry and White fans some optimism going into this weekend’s game against Wasps. The hosts have had a poorer start to the […] READ MORE



Gloucester Rugby vs Worcester Warriors: A Recent History

|

Games between Gloucester Rugby and Worcester Warriors are an odd affair. Ask any Shedhead who the main rivals are, and they will reply Bath. However for the Warriors, 30 miles up the M5, the nearest club is Gloucester.

As the saying goes: the show must go on. Much like everyone else in England, I woke up this morning having to come to terms with the fact that our team has become the first World Cup host to go out in the pool stages. And that is with one game still to play, and […] READ MORE
