Woodward's try

By New Cherry

Formidable at home - terrrible away. Hopefully our sports psychologists can get to the bottom of that one soon!

We went to Kingsholm slightly concerned that Saints were not the team we wanted to face the week after a trouncing in Greater Manchester.

Willi Heinz runs in their final try during the Aviva Premiership match at the KingsholmInstead, we celebrated into our pints as we responded in the best possible way by blowing away the league leaders.

The final score of 29-24 makes it look closer than it was, but credit to Saints for never giving in and closing the gap to just five points with a late try.

We got a bonus point of our own thanks to five excellent tries with skipper Willi Heinz (left) crossing form the last one.

The superb Henry Trinder and Saints' Jamie Gibson crossed in the first half before Jason Woodward and Harry Mallinder exchanged tries in the second half.

We then hit top form with Trinder's second putting us in the lead and tries from Billy Twelvetrees and Willi Heinz opening up a 12 point gap which proved anough before Saint's late effort.
