The official website rounds up the post-match reaction from the Wild Card semi-final win over Newcastle with James Forrester and the Gloucester coaching team.
James Forrester stepped in to the centre position for Gloucester's 23-16 win over Newcastle and bagged two tries to see the Kingsholm club go to Twickenham on Saturday for the final of the Zurich Wild Card against Saracens (Sat 14 May, kick off 1pm).
"That was a big, big win today and we all know how important it was to get to the Wild Card final," said Forrester.
"I'd been working all week at the centre role, and we're happy with that today, as our patched up back-line came up against a full strength Newcastle side. There's a big game now to prepare for against Saracens, for both us and the fans."
Asked about Forrester's performance, Dean Ryan said: "He went alright, didn't he! Newcastle had five internationals in their back-line out there. He's a very good player, and we had other options, but we'd rather have him on the pitch than on the bench. He's certainly got his name in the frame for next Saturday.
"That win is a good springboard for next week. We've had to adapt our game in the last few weeks, and that's the best we've been with that adapted game. There's a big prize on offer now, and it's certainly going to be tough."
Director of rugby Nigel Melville was pleased with the win and said: "We've had some rough times in the past month or so, and that's a decent win. It can get to you, and the likes of Adam Balding, Jake Boer and Duncan McRae have really fronted up this week and we had a spring in our step out there."
Asked about the recent signing of Ludovic Mercier,coupled with Brad Davies, and the involvement of Duncan McRae next season, Melville said: "Yes, Duncan will be involved next season as a player. It'll be good to have more guys available for the number 10 shirt."
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.
Gloucester Rugby is rightly proud of the work that it does within the community and is delighted to confirm that it will be working with Gloucestershire Young Carers and Pied Piper as its two chosen charities this season.
