Gloucester scored four tries at Sixways but it was a 78th minute penalty from ex-fly half Ryan Lamb that secured a last day defeat to Worcester Warriors in Round 22
Jonny May crossed for a sublime first half try and Gloucester added two more through Shane Monahan and Ben Morgan before the break. But a mixture of poor discipline and mixed decision-making let the already relegated hosts back into the game.
A late Ryan Lamb penalty won the game for the hosts with Freddie Burns' last gasp penalty drifting agonisingly wide on the fly-half's last appearance in Cherry and White.

Speaking straight after the game, skipper Billy Twelvetrees told GRTV that losing at home to Bath, in front of a tremendous home support, was desperately disappointing and that the whole team were hurting in the dressing room.
Speaking to the local media this week, Richard Hibbard expressed his excitement ahead of the West Country derby and that there is an extra spring in the step of the Cherry and Whites ahead of the tough challenge.
With such a short turnaround between the two games, and Gloucester looking to reintegrate several players into the line-up after the Autumn international series, Tom Savage told GRTV that the Cherry and Whites will keep changes to a minimum for the European Rugby Challenge Cup game in Zebre on Saturday.
On a tough evening at Kingsholm, Gloucester could escape neither a suffocating Bath defence, nor the whistle of referee Greg Garner as six penalties and a penalty try paved the way to a 39-16 win for the visitors.
