Pre-match festivities of getting the ball over the cross-bar delayed the start of the match against Worcester Warriors when one of the mega balls dislodged the crossbar. This was eventually replaced by members of the ground staff standing on top of a tractor. Of course the incident was captured on national television for all the world to see.
Eventually after a delay of half an hour or more the match eventually kicked off with Gloucester running out the winners by 12 points to 6.
