Gloucester's head coach Bryan Redpath vowed to "give it our all" in their Aviva Premiership play-off at Saracens.

The Cherry and Whites' 68-17 demolition of Sale at Kingsholm today sealed their participation in the post-season. But it will be a difficult semi-final trip to Vicarage Road next weekend - they were defeated 35-12 at the venue only a fortnight ago.

Redpath said: "We under-performed at Saracens last time. We will make changes from the side that went up there last month and we'll give it our all.

"They have some outstanding individuals and it will be a real challenge."

On the performance against Sale, Redpath said "We were very sloppy to start with but I was delighted with the way that we knuckled down and it was great to finish in this way.

"They did have a lot of players leaving though Charlie Hodgson and Dwayne Peel did their best to energise them."

Steve Diamond, Sale's executive director, was critical of his team's efforts.

He said: "In the second half we conceded seven tries and that's an indication of how far this club has dropped.

"Thirteen or 14 of them won't be at Sale next season and we didn't come down here with the right mindset.

"I expected it as that is what happens if you are not up for it and players don't show any self respect."
