Gloucester claim dramatic win

An astonishing finish at Kingsholm saw Gloucester record a remarkable 29-13 win over Worcester with a late penalty try in the Aviva Premiership.

With 20 seconds remaining, Jonny May burst away on the left flank and reached the visitors' 22 before attempting to step inside full-back Errie Claasens, who felled the flying wing with a trip.

On the advice of the TMO Claasens was sent off and Gloucester awarded a penalty try, converted by Rob Cook, which broke Worcester hearts as they seemed set for a shock win which would have allayed their relegation fears.

Henry Trinder scored the other Gloucester try with Cook booting 16 points in total and Ryan Mills a further three.

Joshua Matavesi and Alex Grove crossed for Worcester with Andy Goode booting 10 points and Danny Gray kicking three.
