Gloucester Rugby fans will have had plenty to smile about this morning, following their side’s 22-21 Aviva Premiership victory over local rivals Bath at The Recreation Ground on Sunday. The game provided plenty of late drama as the visitors claimed their first away victory since March.
Cherry and White supporters have wasted no time in rubbing it in the noses of their West Country counterparts through a cascade of social media posts.

The game proved to be a decent first West Country Derby for fly-half Owen Williams, who couldn’t hide his delight at securing a pivotal 4 points for Johan Ackermann’s side, as they moved up to 8th in the league table.

The next Premiership venture sees the Cherry and Whites head to Leicester Tigers on Saturday, where they’ll be hoping to mirror the spirit they showed at the Recreation Ground.
