Join Gloucester Rugby for 'An Audience With...' evening
11 March 2009 10:51
On Monday, March 23, Gloucester Rugby will be holding 'An Audience with...'evening in conjuction with BBC Radio Gloucestershire.
The idea of the evening is both to look at some of the old Anglo Welsh issues with the build up to the EDF semi finals on 28th March, but mostly to have the panel of past and current players - Allan Townsend, Pete Butler, Phil Blakeway, Mike Teague, Andy Deacon and Andy Hazel - who will be able to give the audience some interesting insights and memories from games played over the years.
There will be interviews with the panel and a Q&A session, high lights will be shown on the BBC before the match on the 28th. The evening will be held in the Star Suite and begin at 7pm, tickets are priced at £15 to include dinner. To book your places please contact Laurie McNeill on 01452 872287 or firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
Following the conclusion of the Stade Francais vs Harlequins game today, round six is complete and the quarter-finalists in the European Rugby Challenge Cup are now known with Gloucester set to welcome the Cardiff Blues to Kingsholm.
Knowing a bonus point win would secure a home quarter-final, Gloucester completed their European mission in some style on Saturday evening, sweeping aside a spirited but outgunned Aviron Bayonnais scoring 10 tries on their way to a 64-19 victory.
