Olly Morgan was chosen by Gloucester Rugby's 1873 Club members as their Worthington's Man of the Match following the Guinness Premiership draw against the Worcester Warriors recently.
Olly was held up after the game with media commitments so his award was picked up by team mates Jake Boer and Rory Lawson. The award was presented by Caroline Search of JS Facilities who, as well as sponsoring the East Stand at Kingsholm, were 1873 Match Sponsors for the day.
Tim Molenaar deserves a mention as he received several votes but Olly was a popular choice amongst the 1873 Club Members.
With such a short turnaround between the two games, and Gloucester looking to reintegrate several players into the line-up after the Autumn international series, Tom Savage told GRTV that the Cherry and Whites will keep changes to a minimum for the European Rugby Challenge Cup game in Zebre on Saturday.
Gloucester travel to Italy this weekend to take on Zebre in Round Four of the European Rugby Challenge Cup. The Cherry and Whites defeated the Italian side 35-10 last Sunday, but Director of Rugby David Humphreys is looking for an improved performance in the return fixture.
Skipper Billy Twelvetrees, speaking to GRTV after the 35-10 over Zebre, was happy with the bonus point win over the Italian side but admitted Gloucester will need to tighten up for the return fixture in Parma.
Matt Kvesic was a try scorer and recipient of the Man of the Match award in Sunday's 35-10 European Rugby Challenge Cup win over Zebre. He praised the Italian side for their spirited opposition and admitted that next week's return game will be a tough one.
