Gloucester put the LV Cup boot into London Welsh

Aled Thomas kicked six penalties for Gloucester to earn his side a 9-18 Anglo Welsh LV= Cup victory over London Welsh at the Kassam Stadium.

The loss for London Welsh is their tenth straight loss in all competitions since they returned to the Premiership.

The Exiles squandered a great chance to pull off their first win, as despite having the stronger pack, they lacked the control and firepower behind the scrum to secure victory, with three penalties from Will Robinson being the only response.

The result means Gloucester maintained their interest in the competition with home games against Harlequins and Ospreys still to come.
