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 email@example.com
Speaking to GRTV after the game, Backs Coach Tim Taylor was happy with the squad as they cruised to victory over Treviso. The result wasn't in doubt, but the Cherry and Whites laboured to secure a crucial try bonus point.
Speaking to the local media this week, Gloucester Rugby centre Matt Scott is excited to take the field again as the Cherry and Whites look to build on the win in Bayonne when Treviso come to Kingsholm this Saturday.
Defence Coach Jonny Bell admitted this week that the European Rugby Challenge Cup victory in Bayonne was a welcome one, stressed that Benetton Treviso will pose a tough test on Saturday at Kingsholm but that Gloucester are determined to deliver in front of their own fans.
Motu Matu'u is looking to make up for lost time this week as the Cherry and Whites head to Basque Country to take on Bayonne in the European Rugby Challenge Cup opener. The Samoan hooker made his first appearance in the jersey last weekend, and is hoping to contribute to the team this weekend.
Gloucester's attentions turn to Europe this weekend as they travel to Bayonne for their opening fixture of this season's European Rugby Challenge Cup. Forwards Coach Trevor Woodman told GRTV that the Cherry and Whites will be aiming to top their pool as they've done for the past two seasons, but is well aware of how tough it is to win in France.
Although understandably disappointed at seeing victory slip away at the last minute, Ben Morgan said after the game at Exeter that there were plenty of positives that Gloucester could take from the game.
Speaking after a last-gasp try from Exeter earned the Chiefs a 27-27 draw at Sandy Park on Saturday, Charlie Sharples admitted to mixed feelings. The game saw him score a try on his 200th competitive appearance for the club, but the frustration from not closing out the win was clear.
Gloucester made it two wins from two outings in this season's European Rugby Challenge Cup as they outplayed Benetton Treviso at Kingsholm to win by 37 points to 8, the bonus point try coming with the final play of the game.
