Some positives: Latu had a good game I thought and that was my first real look at Stuart too, he did well.
Flood offered more go-forward than Hodgson and took responsibility in the tackle rather than throwing hospital passes, as many players of all teams do in search of the holy "offload".
Scrum was better than I hear it has been in recent games.

Negatives: Agulla is serviceable, but are we really thinking that the Falcons are better served, now and in the future, by him playing ahead of Zach? (Cue somebody replying that Zach has a long term injury that I didn't know about...)
I didn't see a lot of Witty and Robinson in the loose tonight, I think we might have missed Green's breakdown work.
For me there was no discernible difference between our attack after half time, even with Flood and Harris on.

Overall though it wasn't very good in a game
that, with respect to Gloucester, we will have targeted back in the summer as a win. Seems we've had three bad league games in a row so hopefully on Friday at Northampton we'll put on a better show.

Looked like Flood pulled a hammy with his first kick to touch (or at least twinged it), didn't look right at all after that.

Apart from being unable to break Gloucester's line my biggest concern is that both Wasps and Gloucester scored try's without having to work too hard especially on the flanks.- Two games on the trot - missing Niki who provides a cutting edge in attack.

Problems we've had in the flanks the last couple of games are Tait/Agulla aren't fast enough. Sinoti is not a great defender.

Stuart seemed to play well, but sometimes he maybe passed the ball too quickly in the search for quick ball, as often the backline wasn't set or ready, and the ball would end up in the hands of a prop rather than a centre.
