IT IS fully intended that tonight's Guinness Premiership match between Gloucester Rugby and Newcastle Falcons will go ahead. However, there will be a pitch inspection at 4.30pm by referee Rob Debney owing to the fog.
The inspection will take place with the floodlights on to try and best recreate match conditions in and around the stadium.
News of the inspection will be made as soon as possible after it has been conducted, and Gloucester Rugby apologise for any inconvenience or uncertainty in the meantime and ask supporters to keep in touch on the website at www.gloucesterrugby.co.uk and the local media for updates.
Ahead of Friday evening's Aviva Premiership fixture away at London Welsh, Head Coach Laurie Fisher told the local media that he feels that Gloucester are making improvements each and every week but that there's still plenty of work to do.
Speaking to GRTV on Monday night, Pete Buxton was thrilled with the spirit shown by the Gloucester United squad as they overturned a twenty-one point deficit in the second half to overcome Bristol Rugby.
Scrum half Callum Braley was a try scorer in Gloucester United's 30-27 win over Bristol United in the Aviva Premiership A League on Monday evening and, after the game, paid tribute to his team mates for hanging in there and fighting back to get the win.
Skipper Billy Twelvetrees admitted that the Gloucester squad were disappointed and frustrated after losing at home to Exeter, regretting that Gloucester's own errors had given the Chiefs the upper hand.
