Robinson boots Gloucester to win

Fly-half Nicky Robinson saved face for troubled Gloucester at Kingsholm and gave the Cherry and Whites a 22-21 victory against Leeds - their first Aviva Premiership win of the season.

But it was a far from convincing display by them as Leeds lead by two points with a minute to go only to give away a penalty that Wales international Robinson, whose kicking was inconsistent, thumped through the posts.

It was welcome relief for home head coach Bryan Redpath who said some stern words during the week after his side's shock 22-10 defeat by debutants Exeter at Sandy Park last week.
