Comment from Head Coach, Lyn Jones:

“I do not want to reflect on the events of last week.  We are now looking ahead to Gloucester at the Liberty this Friday and it should be a great fixture, particularly in light of the excellent game of rugby played at Kingsholm last year.  They are a formidable side up front and they have a good all round kicking strategy.  It will be a pleasure to face something different to what we experience in the Magners League on a weekly basis and we are looking forward to it.”

“Gloucester are a confident side who are right on top of their game, whereas we are still attempting to find our feet.  The EDF Cup is important to the Welsh sides and we all have the ability to win the competition if we play to our potential.”
