Gloucester 8 Bath 6 May 10th 2008

Saw someone mention this in a memories thread the other day. Does anyone have a copy they would be prepared to lend for £? Desperate to see it again. Was like a test match!

What a game that was - would also love to see it again!

I found this page from the BBC breaking down the last day - had forgotten that Quins threw away an 11 point lead against Leicester, while Sale lost at home against Irish. If one of those two hadn’t choked, we may have got through the home semi and then got sweet revenge against Wasps...

Think it’s fair to say that was the last time we got to the play-offs with a realistic chance of winning the title.

Probably the best low-scoring game I've watched (live).

If my memory is still working, didn't Akapusi Qera have a fantastic game that day and put in some huge hits?! A great afternoon!

Couldn't resist it. I turned to the last few pages - or the last ten minutes. Just as nail-biting as it was at the time.

Thanks for uploading.

I'm enjoying it. Have to say, I think the game was better then than it is now. 20 mins in and we would've had 5 yellows by today's standards.

Have to say that was a great day. Stood in the shed with my two sons, one supporting Gloucester the other Bath, I know, he was brought up all wrong! Anyway, much good natured banter and the very best result.

Thanks for putting up the link, will watch tomorrow, that was the last time we all went to a game together
