Gloucester Rugby fly half Nicky Robinson, fresh from a 20 point haul against Newcastle Falcons last weekend, explained this week that he's aware of what to expect at Glasgow on Friday but that Gloucester are ready for the challenge.
Robinson kicked five penalties, a drop goal and a conversion against the Falcons to help secure Gloucester's fourth Guinness Premiership victory of the season but it's back to Heineken Cup action this weekend and the first leg of the double header against the Glasgow Warriors.
Gloucester's form has been on the up in recent weeks, a fact Robinson acknowledged when he spoke to the media this week.
"It's definitely been a progressive thing, our performances have got a lot better."
"Obviously, up at Sale we were really disappointed not to pick a win even with only 14 men as we played some really good stuff."
"Leicester was good because it was a good 80 minute performance without actually being able to get the try which would have taken us clear."
"And Harlequins was the same when we played some good stuff but we let them in for a few tries and that's been one of our problems so far this season. We've played well but our defence hasn't been good enough."
"It's taken us a while to regain a bit of confidence and self belief. We've been sticking in games longer and making sides earn their points against us. We were giving away tries and then having to chase games."
"We weren't clean enough in our own half and there's been a big focus on that. We're really trying not to give away cheap penalties in our own half which results in points on the board."
"We're still not perfect but we're getting better on that score."
Robinson has started both Gloucester's Heineken Cup matches this season, at home to Newport Gwent Dragons and away to Biarritz scoring 17 points in the process.
However, he is now up to 35 total appearances in the tournament and, from his Cardiff days, knows what to expect north of the border.
"I've played Glasgow enough times in the past and lost up there enough times to know what a difficult place it is to play."
"And that's when they haven't been that strong in the Magners League and this year they're top. It's such a difficult place to go and they're proud of their home record."
"But we know, that if we can pick up a win there, then it puts us in a really strong position. These games at the weekend can decide your fate within the pool."
