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.
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.
