He came into the Abbey Business Lounge after the game to receive his award from Liz Barnwell of Marketing Gloucester and Michelle Fyrne of SoGlos.
Rob then took part in an informal Q&A, facilitated by former Gloucester back row forward Simon Devereux, alongside team mates Matt Kvesic and James Simpson-Daniel.
Simon provided the following summary:
"A disappointing start to the season at Kingsholm and a performance lacking accuracy which Gloucester will need to quickly forget.
"Sale took a calculated gamble to overload the contact area making life difficult for Gloucester. Their shrewd decision to select two openside flankers, targeting the ball carrier and breakdown, proved key resulting in a number of turnovers and slow ball for Gloucester.
"Gloucester's set piece was inconsistent making it difficult to maintain field position and any space found by the backs was quickly stifled by Sale.
"Gloucester deserve some credit for clawing back from 3-19 to 16-19 at one point but the capitulation of the final scrum on the Sale line at the end summed up the performance and Sale deserved their victory.
"Sinbad, Matt Kvesic and Rob Cook gave a frank and honest appraisal to the 1873 members after the match where Gloucester's stand out player, Rob Cook, deservedly collected the Man of the Match award.
"Next up at Kingsholm will be Northampton Saints. Expect a much improved performance!"
