GLOUCESTER got their Guinness A League campaign off to a victorious start last night, to the delight of coach Mark Cornwell.
The Kingsholm side scored three tries through Apo Satala, Henry Trinder and Dan Norton to beat Sale Jets 23-18.
"It was a really gutsy, mature and physical performance - I was delighted," Cornwell said. "The average age of our backline was 20, both our centres were 18, but we were dangerous, quick and controlled the game.
"I cannot speak highly enough of the effort and focus in our approach. It was great to see from such a young group of players and James Forrester did a great job as captain.
"Apo Satala had an outstanding game. We want to create an environment that is competitive and where young players can learn and progress - that is why I am so pleased because we managed that last night."
After a good start, and dominating for long periods at the Ricoh, skipper Tom Savage spoke after the Wasps defeat to GRTV about the small things that Gloucester have to work on as well as focussing on some of the positives.
Gloucester Rugby will take on Wasps on Sunday in their first ever visit in the Aviva Premiership to the Ricoh Arena. Speaking to the local media today, Director of Rugby David Humphreys previewed the game as well as giving an update on the injured Henry Trinder.
