The first half created a lot of three pointers. The discipline was not the best and that was to be shown later in the second half. the first points came on 5 minutes with Greig Laidlaw slotting a penalty. It was more of the same throughout the half and the score were tied at the break.
HALF TIME GLOUCESTER 9 – 9 OYYONAX
The second half was to be a very expansive game of rugby from the Cherry and Whites. Smit’s penalty gave Oyonnax an early lead but 1 minute later Gloucester scored the first try of the match through Kvesic who finished of a superb solo effort. Poor discipline from Oyonnax ruled the whole game and the referee thought enough was enough and put Titchit in the bin. Kvesic’s MOTM surely helped him to England place as he is now including in the EPS.
