The former Wales playmaker James Hook kicked five penalties as Gloucester fought back in difficult conditions to beat Bath 15-11 and leap to fifth place in the Premiership table – if just for 24 hours.
Losing at home to their West Country rivals is hard enough to bear but this was also Bath’s sixth defeat in a row in all competitions.
A meagre losing bonus point leaves last year’s free-scoring Premiership finalists languishing in ninth position, having lost seven of their 10 league games. Their points came from an early Dom Day try and two penalties by the full-back Tom Homer.
