Nigel Davies' side ambition to play open rugby saw Sharples receive a decent amount of possession, and the Hong Kong born flyer admitted it was good to get decent possession in attack.
"It was nice to get a bit of ball in hand, as a winger that's what you need. It's good to get in the game that way, sometimes it doesn't always come your way and you have to come looking for it.
"Fortunately, that wasn't the case at the weekend and the ball kept coming my way. Hopefully that will continue but, with the weather predicted for Friday, who knows!"
His try got Gloucester back into the game at 9-7, having trailed to three early Ian Keatley penalties, but he was quick to acknowledge the contribution of scrum half Dan Robson.
"I was calling to Dan, I could see that their nine was the only defender on the short side, so I thought we should back ourselves and Dan managed to fix him nicely and I managed to squeeze over in the corner.
"It was just one of those things that unfolded to be honest, it wasn't pre-planned or anything.
"It was Dan who scooped up the ball in the first place and drilled it downfield in the first place, before I made the tackle on Johne Murphy so it was a nice little double effort!"
One aspect of the game was the physical intensity put in by both sides, and the 24 year old admitted that it had been tough - even out on the wing!
"It was very physical and you certainly knew afterwards that you'd been in a game. It was the most bruised I've been after a game for a while. It was a real battle, and that wasn't just their physicality, I think we matched them on that front.
"We really turned up in defence and around the contact area. So, it was tough and the body feels it afterwards.
"It'll be the same at Bath. Derby games are all about commitment and physicality. If we can turn up, 1 to 15, like we did against Munster, with the forwards fronting up as they did, being as physical as we can in defence, then we can add the skillful touches on top of that.
"It's a huge one, one of those massive rivalries with a little bit of extra spice to it. Fortunately, I've been involved in a couple of games down there where we've won, and it's a fantastic feeling when you walk off that pitch having got the result.
"Hopefully, I'll experience that again this weekend."
