Gloucesters poor run of form continued this weekend as they got convincingly beaten 35-6 by Wasps in front of their home crowd at Kingsholm.
Scrumhalf Joe Simpson and flyhalf Dave Walder combined to give centre Dominic Waldouck an easy try in the first half as he glided through the hapless Gloucester defenders.
Wasps managed to hold off any attempt at a comeback by the home side as they picked up their bonus point after scoring three tries in the second half. Mark Van Gisbergen scored twice, with captain Serge Betsen also scoring under the posts.
Gloucesters injured World Cup winner, Mike Tindall, says it was an embarrassing result.
I felt embarrassed. We made too many individual errors and too many mistakes, he said.
"I feel sorry for Brushy (Gloucester coach Bryan Redpath) because we made too many individual errors and mistakes.
"Whenever we did something good, we then went and did something stupid to undo it. After such a good start to the season with the win over Bath, things just aren't going right.
"It's not a lack of work or commitment, but we need to own up when we aren't doing things well. This hasn't just been going on for one or two weeks, it is three or four now."
