Hogg happy with Gloucester spirit

December 27, 2012 11:22:54 UK

Gloucester forwards coach Carl Hogg admits they will need to call on the same spirit which saw them defeat Exeter Chiefs when they take on Leicester Tigers.

A late Freddie Burns penalty meant the Kingsholm-based side overcame the Chiefs 18-16 last Saturday which moved them up to fourth in the Aviva Premiership.

We're at the halfway point of the Premiership, we've played 11 games and we've shown resilience and character all season.

The Cherry and Whites sit just four points behind leaders Harlequins and Hogg believes that can provide them with the confidence to challenge the Midlands outfit.

He said: "We're at the halfway point of the Premiership, we've played 11 games and we've shown resilience and character all season.

"It's something we'll need to show in spadefuls up at Welford Road, but we'll go there in good spirit and good heart and we'll certainly have a crack.

"We have got a degree of momentum now and that's something we need to keep going, and that obviously starts at Welford Road on Saturday."

Gloucester are 67.00 to win the Aviva Premiership Grand Final this season, with Quins 13.00 and Leicester 1.36.

One of the player's key to Gloucester's success this season is the recently capped England international Burns and Hogg praised the development of the stand-off throughout the campaign.

"Freddie's maturing very well," he added. "Certainly from the start of the season he's mixed his game up very well, he's got real balance to his game.

"He understands where the momentum of the game is. I thought he kicked the corners very well in the second half against Exeter and just pinned them down there."
