Gloucester 17 Saracens 19
Saracens impressive away record continues, as they come from behind to snatch the points away from Gloucester in the dying minutes
Saracens came into this one with the best away record in the Aviva Premiership, and managed to come from behind late on to take the points here as well.
It was a quiet enough start to the game in the opening fifteen minutes, as both sides were strong defensively. The home side were first off the mark with a penalty, Freddie Burns kicking a long range penalty.
The fly half had a chance to extend the home side's lead with another penalty, but saw his effort come back off the upright. Gloucester were in the ascendancy though, and scored a fine try just a few minutes later. Great play from full back Olly Morgan, who started and ended the move to leave the visitors struggling.
Saracens finally got themselves on the score board after half an hour with a penalty from distance from Charlie Hodgson. However, just before the break, the away side gifted Gloucester a penalty of their own for offside, which Burns gladly converted.
The second half started a little brighter for the visitors. Although Charlie Hodgson missed a penalty chance, centre Owen Farrell took over kicking duties to kick two penalties in ten minutes for the Saracens. Gloucester managed to keep five between them soon after though, as replacement Tim Taylor landed a placed kick.
Things were very tight at this stage, and when Tim Taylor kicked another penalty with fifteen minutes to play, the game looked over for Saracens. However, the away side showed why they have such a formidable away record, as they came from behind to snatch victory late on.
Owen Farrell scored a penalty with ten minutes left, and when he cleverly chipped the ball through for Brad Barritt, the centre dived under the posts, with Farrell converting.
Gloucester were left stunned, and failed to score again, an impressive comeback from Saracens to take the points.
