When did Gloucester play at Kingsholm for the first time on a Sunday ?

By John Cowen

Extract from a match programme on that date:


Of all the famous teams that play on Kingsholm the visit of Bristol must obviously conjure up expectations of what Hamlet termed "enterprises of great pith and moment", and we extend a very cordial welcome to our friends and rivals from the south of the county.

This afternoon's game is indeed a unique occasion, at least for Gloucester, for it is the first time in their "One Hundred Cherry and White Years" that they have played on a Sunday."

(Answer: 3 February 1974. Kick-off was at 3:00 pm and Gloucester won 7-3.)
