Gloucester are currently bottom of the Gallagher Premiership and are in need of a win to push them up the table. Sale sharks are sitting pretty in fourth place and are right in the mix.
Billy Twelvetrees clearly wasn’t happy with the water carrier this evening as it looked like he was preventing him from taking a quick throw in. Billy Twelvetrees reacted by pushing this in hand led to an all out brawl.
It’s good to see Gloucester and Billy Twelvetrees showing a bit of fight though as they will need every bit as they look to avoid the drop and time won’t be long running out for Gloucester as they only have six points to show, so far this season.
