When addressing the media after the game, Gloucester Rugby Head Coach Bryan Redpath claimed that his side deserved credit for their second half comeback in defeating Newport Gwent Dragons in the Heineken Cup on Friday night.
"I thought our ball retention was poor but that our work rate to get back into the game was pretty good actually."
"In the first half we turned over nine pieces of ball compared to two by them and they showed a little bit more composure."
"We are very critical of ourselves but we have to take the win as well. We've had a tough start to the season and sometimes we'd have struggled to come back and we came back reasonably well."
"We played the field position a bit better and, when we did, we obviously kept the ball a wee bit better than we did in the first half."
Redpath was asked if he felt mainly relief at the result?
"I think so. I've openly said that I've been quite critical over the past two or three weeks. Some of the performances have not been acceptable. First half last week, basic errors and mistakes."
"But there comes a time when you're beeating the same drum and you have to change the message a bit. We'll be honest with ourselves but we have to move on and build some confidence and momentum within this group."
"A win will give us confidence. The Dragons came here and only had one aim, to win the game. And they showed a lot of composure and a lot of credit must go to them. They've started pretty well in the Magners League and they showed great character."
Is confidence an issue within the squad at the moment?
"I don't know if it's confidence. I don't need to go down there and shout and bawl. It's the Heineken Cup and it's four points and you have to take it."
"We came back from losing at half time. There were a couple of opportunities we didn't take but, on the whole, we have to be honest and we have to keep plugging away."
"We need to get some continuity to our game and keep possession longer than one, two or three phases."
"We are very low on numbers at the moment and it's hard to replicate a game situation in training and it's a challenge but we have to dig in."
Are the senior players being missed at the moment?
"Of course, you miss all the senior elements. But some of the boys today put their hands up. Attwood did very well, having to call the lineouts after Browny suffered a dislocation of his finger."
"Things like that (the dislocated finger) haven't been going for us but we dug in and deserve some credit for that."
Will Mike Tindall be back for next week?
"I'd like to think so. With little hamstring tweaks, you have to be careful. We can't ruin people by rushing them back because it's a long season and we have to be smart."
"Eliota (Fuimanono-Sapolu) should be back next week so that'll ease things a little but up front is tough for us at the moment."
Nicky Robinson showed his worth this evening?
"I thought his goalkicking was very good. I thought he made a couple of poor decisions. There was one occasion when he could have used the ball and he carried."
"But, in the second half, he kicked very well field position wise and kept the Dragons deep in their own territory which helped us keep them out of range."
Gloucester are winning at the moment without playing particularly well?
"I've not gone down there and beaten anybody up. Winning becomes a habit and we've won the last two games without being pretty and some of our basics have been poor."
"We'll put pressure on our basics from Monday through to Friday and we'll get some rewards on the back of it."
And looking ahead to Biarritz next weekend?
"It's never going to be easy to go across there and play. But we'll concentrate on that next week. We'll get over tonight first."
"We have a long recovery after a short turnaround this week after playing last Sunday when we picked up a few knocks. So, on the back of that, I'm happy."
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.
