Despite the spirited performance, Gloucester were denied a memorable win by a late penalty from Ryan Lamb and Dawidiuk eloquently put into words the disappointment felt in the dressing room.
"The boys are all very frustrated at the game, we had the win, and then to give away that penalty just at the end, that was tough. To do that after going ahead, we're very frustrated about it.
"But there's a lot of positives we can take from the game, and we're going to turn up and get back into it.
"We'll focus on the negatives first, then highlight the positives, and make sure we know what we need to do to improve for the Worcester game."
The Cornishman also revealed an unusual source of inspiration:
"Rupert Harden and I watched the Rugby Club during the week and we heard all the commentators saying we were a young and inexperienced scrum, but I think we really fronted.
"We've got the ability and the experience to go out there against teams like Northampton and to put their scrum under strain.
"It's one step in the right direction to proving ourselves, we're not very well-known lads, so we've got a point to prove.
"We won all our own ball cleanly, so we're happy with that and we managed to get three penalties out of their scrum so we've got a lot to be pleased with."
