However, Gloucester were almost too ambitious in their approach as they went in search of the win and also a try scoring bonus point.
A succession of turnovers allowed the men from Yorkshire to stay in the game and the visitors' self belief grew by the minute resulting in them taking a 70th minute lead before Nicky Robinson's late penalty secured the points for Gloucester.
Tindall, who was prominent with ball in hand as Gloucester chased the game in the final moments, was completely frank when he spoke after the final whistle.
"We said we were going to avoid repeating the mistakes we made last week and, for 40 minutes, we didn't. When we cut out the errors and played the way we know we can, we scored three tries with relative ease."
"In the second half, we come out as a different team and think we can score with ease but poor handling errors and then trying to force stuff and we let Leeds back in there. It's fortunate that we got the win."
Fly half Nicky Robinson scored the penalty which clinched the 22-21 win with just a couple of minutes left on the clock and the Gloucester skipper felt that it was the right decision but that it shouldn't have come to that.
"I think it was a penalty that Rosey gave but it was a tough penalty to give. We've got to be up front and honest with each other about what we're trying to do."
"Things need to be said. Forcing offloads all around the pitch, not just by one player but by everyone, that's not good enough. That's not what we're about and, if we're going to get better and perform better, then we need to learn from it."
"We play a movement game so there is a lot of handling involved in our game but a lot of the handling errors came from stuff on the edge, offloads that weren't on and trying to force passes when we could have easily carried the ball and recycled."
"When we get into phase play then we're a very hard team to live with. And the disappointing thing is, that in the warm up games, we seemed to do that and we've got to try and find that again."
