Angus Robson's half-century helped Leicestershire have the better of a rain-hit opening day against Gloucestershire at Grace Road.

Liam Norwell (2-33) accounted for Eckersley and then returned to have Robson caught behind by wicketkeeper Gareth Roderick.

Leicestershire closed on 127-2 with Dan Redfern unbeaten on 29.
