He then took part in an informal Q&A, facilitated by former Gloucester back row forward Simon Devereux, alongside team mates James Hudson and Jonny May.
Simon provided the following summary:
"A tremendous effort from Gloucester, against a powerful Perpignan side, which can kick start their season. The squad showed their true character in turning around the disappointment of the recent Exeter defeat with a much improved performance to get the Heineken cup campaign off to a good start.
"Gloucester showed good early composure to recover from a 7-0 deficit in the 1st minute, working their way back into the game, finishing the stronger side going into the break.
"Gloucester's improvement in the set piece was significant, especially the lineout, which enabled them to maintain pressure on the opposition, with Billy Twelvetrees keeping the scoreboard ticking over from the ensuing penalties.
"The Gloucester scrum performed well, showing good discipline against a bigger pack, especially after having to reshuffle the front row with Shaun Knight going off in the 1st half. Gloucester will take heart from the improved discipline and precision, ensuring that when in attacking positions they came away with points.
"It was a typically tough European encounter, where the final word was left to Jonny May to burst through the line showing good strength and pace to finish well, sending the Kingsholm crowd into raptures!
Jimmy Cowan turned in an abrasive performance and was a constant threat to the opposition defence.
"He capped this with a try, reacting quickest from a free kick 5 metres out to score, giving Gloucester the perfect start to the 2nd half.
"Jimmy was a deserving recipient of the 1873 Man of the Match award, showing a tenacity which reflected that of the Gloucester squad throughout the match."
