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.
