What a fantastic lot. The Shed is a fantastic place to watch a game of rugby, two thousand totally one-eyed referees crammed into one space, but such good fun to talk to all the way through the game. So many made the effort to come over to congratulate us on the win & thank us for coming down. Of course there were a couple of idiots, but their own supporters put them back under their stones without any need for us to get involved. Must add the effort than many of them made to get the game on too, and Kingsholm remains for me one of the highlights of every season. Junior was treated like a star & had a grand day out due to the great atmosphere.

We will be back.

Got to say, the home fans were very gracious and appreciative of our efforts. Credit to their club.

Gloucester certainly has amazing fans and having been to quite a few of their matches their banter, humility and friendliness always remind me of Kingston Park.
Knowing a few people at the club, a lot of effort went into making yesterday happen and there was a lot of worry about the away fans and team.
They sold 11,000 tickets for yesterday but reckon there was about 6,000 in the ground! It sounded on tv like there was more but no doubt the voices of the Shed have contributed significantly to their excellent home form. Hope everyone got back up north ok

There are few better places to watch rugby than when The Shed is in chorus. Our recent record there is actually quite good. Thats three wins in the last 5 seasons, I think.

I'd echo Monkey's words. The Shed is an experience like no other. A flat pass by an opposition player is greeted by howls of derision by the home support, but it's all in good spirit. We met and became good friends with a couple of Shed-ites on the '13 Lions Tour. Since then, we've remained good friends and stay at each others houses for the weekend with each reverse fixture. Rugby as it should be. Yesterday thry texted "Ten out of ten to the small but vocal Falcons fans who made it to the game".
