On Thursday evening, the Cherry and Whites travelled to Central London and the HAC to face Saracens. A youthful side faced the league leaders and despite playing the majority of the rugby were defeated.
A 45-12 was perhaps an unfair reflection on the game with Saracens crossing for several tries to keep in control in the second half.
For Gloucester, it was a game that saw several players play their first game in Cherry and White, and others their final.
