A bit worrying we can name a replacement prop this early in the season...

Storm win 41 - 12 Glaws (or other way around as the away team)

Glaws live stream was good quality but kept breaking into small sections so wasn't able to follow live but sounds like a flurry of tries in the second half.

Went along for this as I’m currently residing in Bibury. Decent crowd there, must have been pushing 2,000.
Early doors we appeared to very much have the ascendency up front, pushing Gloucester back quite significantly in the first couple of mauls. This really set the pattern for quite a lot of the match as Storm really dominated in the forwards, with Gloucester at times looking dangerous with their backs. Where I was seated, because I didn’t let on I was a sarries fan, I could hear the usual “you can tell why everyone hates sarries. All they want to do is be bigger and stronger.” Was nice to know we still get under people’s skin, means we are doing something right. Anyway, although we went in at the break 12-8 down I never really thought we would lose. Joel Kpoku and Ben Earl had cracking games for me, although Joel did come off late in the game with an injury that he was treated on the pitch for some time with. The finishing score possibly flattered us somewhat as Gloucester played themselves into several great counter attack positions but just failed to have the composure to finish off those attacks. Sarries could have even had more points, but the ref eventually gave an offside, having been strongly encouraged to do so for the previous 10 minutes by an increasingly incredulous Gloucester support against our very quick rush defence, preventing another try under the posts. This gave the Gloucester faithful their biggest cheer of the second half. Most enjoyable stuff.

Noticed we were playing in Black shirts with red shorts and red socks - I'm guessing that is because Glaws were in red shirts , black shorts and black socks .

So our kit is basically mix & match .
