Saturday was a memorable day for more than one reason for Rob Cook and Elliott Stooke, as the 38-30 win over London Irish was followed by them being named Player and Young Player of the Season respectively.
The awards, kindly sponsored once again by Worthingtons, were voted for by the Gloucester Rugby season ticket holders and 1873 Club member over the past few weeks.
Cook, Nigel Davies' first signing for Gloucester, has enjoyed a superb second season for the club.
He tops the Metres Made and Clean Breaks charts and is second only to Sione Kalamafoni in the Carries and Charlie Sharples in the Defenders Beaten stakes. He's also played more minutes than anyone.
Meanwhile, Stooke has been a revelation. He came into preseason as a Junior World Championship winner with England U20s but dislocated his elbow in that tournament.
However, he's featured in every Premiership fixture, in five out of six Heineken Cup matches and earned an England Saxons call up. His progress was swiftly rewarded with a new contract.
And the supporters clearly recognised this in voting them as Player and Young Player of the Season.
Speaking to the local media this week ahead of the Bath Rugby game, Head Coach Laurie Fisher stressed that the fundamental shape of Gloucester's game is in good shape but that the Cherry and Whites have to look after the ball better and make more of their scoring opportunities.
Skipper for the day Willi Heinz faced the cameras after the 13-18 home loss to Newcastle and expressed real frustration at not being able to back up last week's win at Sale, calling it a performance he and his team-mates are not proud of.
Speaking after the game, Charlie Sharples described it as 'the win that has eluded us.' The winger stressed that Gloucester had stayed positive after the first couple of weeks of the Aviva Premiership season and the 26-13 victory over Sale was a result of that focus.
Gloucester Rugby picked up their first win of the new Aviva Premiership season on Friday night, easing to a 26-13 win on the road at Sale Sharks. Director of Rugby David Humphreys was full of praise for his players on the night.
Greig Laidlaw is back to skipper Gloucester Rugby in Saturday's Aviva Premiership derby game against Bath Rugby at Kingsholm. James Hook will make his first start of the season at full-back and Billy Twelvetrees will make his 100th competitive appearance for the club.
Wednesday evening saw the launch of the Cherry and White Wednesday show on the Drivetime programme on BBC Radio Gloucestershire, with Henry Trinder live in the studio to kick off a regular weekly slot.
