Gloucester Rugby beat Northampton Saints 35-30 to secure the bonus point victory at Kingsholm on Saturday.
The Cherry and Whites scored five tries through Harry Elrington, Tom Seabrook, Louis Rees-Zammit and Santiago Socino with a penalty try from the driving maul also proving crucial.
Northampton were competitive for the full 80 and went into the break with a 28-14 lead.
Gloucester Rugby scored two opportunistic tries in the first half with Harry Elrington and Tom Seabrook both getting over the line.
For the first score, Elrington capitalised on an error from Saints at the lineout and was there to crash over for the try.
Hastings was accurate from the boot and nailed the conversion and also added the extras when Tom Seabrook made a break and threw a massive dummy to go over just before the break.
Northampton scored two first half tries through Fraser Dingwall and Matt Proctor with Dan Biggar nailing the conversions and two penalties to give the Saints a 20-14 lead at the break.
In the second half, Northampton were first to score through a Tom Collins try but Gloucester Rugby soon turned the switch on and super sub Louis Rees-Zammit scored a great individual try with his first touch of the game.
The forwards then drove over the line and referee Ian Tempest awarded us the penalty try and yellow carded Emmanuel Iyogun for the offence.
Dan Biggar kept the Saints scoreboard ticking with a penalty but a final try from Matias Alemanno gave us the victory.
Gloucester Rugby are back in action next Saturday when we travel to Sale Sharks.
