Gloucester will travel to Harlequins this weekend for the latest round of the Guinness Premiership hoping to reverse the recent run of results between the two sides which has seen the home side win the past five encounters.
There have been some entertaining encounters between the two sides in recent seasons but you have to go back to September 2006 to find the last time the away side won when Gloucester won by 31 points to 21 with three tries coming from Olivier Azam, James Forrester and Peter Richards.
Since then, Gloucester have won the encounters at Kingsholm 34-25 in March 2007, 27-25 in November 2007 and 24-20 in September 2008.
On the other hand, Quins have won the two most recent clashes at the Stoop 30-25 in March 2008 and 14-9 in February of this year when Nick Evans' try from deep proved to be the clincher.
Gloucester have only won once on the road in the Guinness Premiership so far this season, when they beat Leeds at Headingley on October 4th, but, buoyed by last weekend's won over the Leicester Tigers, will be hoping to get something out of the trip to the Stoop.
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.
