Speaking after the game, Charlie Sharples described it as 'the win that has eluded us.' The winger stressed that Gloucester had stayed positive after the first couple of weeks of the Aviva Premiership season and the 26-13 victory over Sale was a result of that focus.
Gloucester Rugby picked up their first win of the new Aviva Premiership season on Friday night, easing to a 26-13 win on the road at Sale Sharks. Director of Rugby David Humphreys was full of praise for his players on the night.
Defence Coach Jonny Bell was on media duties ahead of the Aviva Premiership fixture at Sale Sharks on Friday evening, and spoke about where Gloucester find themselves in terms of their form at the moment as well as how he's viewing their defensive displays so far.
Callum Braley, who skippered Gloucester United to a 22-19 Aviva Premiership A League win over Saracens Storm on Monday evening, paid tribute to his forwards and the younger players in what he described as not the prettiest of wins.
Henry Purdy was the man in the right place at the right time as he touched down to score a vital try in the 23-23 Aviva Premiership draw at Worcester on Friday. After the game, he spoke to GRTV about the frustrating inconsistency in Gloucester's game at the moment.
A desperately disappointing afternoon for Gloucester who, despite dominating possession and territory, were guilty of failing to make the most of it against a resolute Newcastle defence before the visitors pounced to snatch the win in the second half.
