Premiership Rugby confirmed this morning that the Sale Sharks v Gloucester Rugby Aviva Premiership Rugby Round Six fixture kick off time will be moved to Saturday 8th October 2011 at 3pm.
The game was originally due to have been played on Friday October 7th (kick off 7:45pm) at Edgeley Park but has been put back to the following day at the request of the Sale Sharks with Gloucester Rugby's agreement.
Henry Purdy, a first half replacement for Charlie Sharples, was amongst the try scorers in the 64-19 victory over Aviron Bayonnais on Saturday evening and told GRTV that it was a professional performance, one the team are happy with.
Gloucester's win in Treviso last week means that they need a bonus point win against Bayonne on Saturday evening to secure a home quarter-final (kick off 8pm), but Tim Taylor wants the team to focus on the performance first and foremost.
Billy Burns and Man of the Match Richard Hibbard spoke to GRTV after the 41-0 win in Treviso, on a day when preparations weren't ideal. They felt the team's attitude was key and also praised the travelling support.
After the recent European exploits, it's more cup action for Gloucester this weekend, but it's of a domestic variety as the Cherry and Whites travel to Bath on Friday evening to resume their Anglo-Welsh Cup campaign.
