Former Gloucester Rugby star and Samoan international was the driving force behind the Legends Charity Match which took place at Kingsholm after the Newcastle match. Junior passed on his thanks to all involved by email.
Junior contacted Gloucester Rugby Community Manager Gary Little with the following message.
"Sorry for the delay in getting in touch with you. We've had quite an eventful last few days, our people carrier that broke down on our way up there is still in Gloucester being fixed (hopefully) and so we taxi'd home!"
"Our electricity here has been off for the day thus putting everything back as you can imagine. Anyway all shall be better, hopefully!"
"We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to yourself, the Gloucester Rugby Club, and to everyone that helped us with this fundraiser. We have been overwhelmed by the awesome generosity, support and kindness shown by all.
"We raised £3207, which in Samoan currency is nearly $13,000 tala. It's an amazing amount which we are truly grateful for."
"I myself very much appreciated being back at Kingsholm in the weekend, and I enjoyed the whole experience."
"Seeing the awesome new stadium, attending the Heritage Celebrations, meeting up with some of the old legends of the club, and to finally run on Kingsholm once again was fantastic!!"
"Dream stuff that was! And to raise funds for my beloved country.... truly grateful!!"
"Thanks again Gary for all your help, even more so for taking the bucket around!!!"
Fly-half Billy Burns was named Man of the Match after the 35-14 European Rugby Challenge Cup victory over Stade Rochelais on Thursday evening, and was full of praise for all his team mates for the win after a short turnaround.
Gloucester have been in good form in recent weeks, but Backs Coach Tim Taylor knows that the Cherry and Whites will have to be at their best on Thursday evening (kick off 7:45pm) against a Stade Rochelais side flying high this season.
Speaking to GRTV after the bonus point win over Bristol, back row Lewis Ludlow revealed that despite a tricky first half, Gloucester backed their skills to come through, a faith that was evident in a strong second half showing.
Willi Heinz scored Gloucester's second try as the Cherry and Whites overturned a disappointing first 40 minutes and 0-6 half time deficit, to earn a 26-18 Aviva Premiership victory over Bristol Rugby on Saturday.
Gloucester's much changed side had to overcome conceding an early try on Thursday evening, but responded in style to down Stade Rochelais by 35 points to 14 in the European Rugby Challenge Cup and set up a mouthwatering return fixture next weekend.
After taking 11 points from their last three games in the Aviva Premiership, including bonus point wins against Wasps and Bristol, Gloucester will be looking to continue their good form when they welcome La Rochelle to Kingsholm.
