Tim Molenaar replaced Tindall in the starting line up and 23 year old Tom Savage took over the captaincy for the first time in his Gloucester career.
What was important according to Davies, when he spoke to the media after the game, was that Gloucester just got on with it and refused to let the changes affect them.
"The good thing, from my point of view, was that what we've spoken to this group all year about is being able to adapt, get on with things and not worry too much about things that don't go quite right.
"Because of that, we were able to just deal with it. I thought Tim (Molenaar) did well when he came in and, of course, Sav took the leadership and he did very well. I think he's definitely got potential to be the next Gloucester captain.
"But the thing is, as always, we try not to create any drama. It's just about getting on with things. Whether we win or lose, whether decisions go with you or against you, just try and keep an even keel.
"The boys have been great at that. They're not fazed by anything. If we go behind by a try, they don't worry too much, they just get back on the horse and go forward again.
"Because of that, we're a tough team to beat at the moment."
