  1. Goodbye

    FT: Bath 11-15 Gloucester

    Right, Friday night's offering - including a comprehensive win for England's women against their Scotland counterparts - has set us up for a glorious weekend of rugby, which you can follow across all BBC platforms.

    Scotland versus England's Calcutta Cup game is the highlight in the Six Nations, while there is also France v Italy and three Premiership games.

    So get yourself some sleep and we'll see you back here tomorrow?

    Until then, goodbye.

  2. Recap

    FT: Bath 11-15 Gloucester

    James Hook

    James Hook kicked all 15 points as Gloucester came from behind to beat Bath and inflict a six successive loss on their West Country rivals.

    Bath, who reached last season's Premiership final but now sit ninth after 10 matches, led 8-0 after Dominic Day's try and Tom Homer's penalty.

    Homer landed another kick after two Hook penalties to keep them 11-6 ahead.

    But, in the wind and rain, three more kicks from Hook secured Gloucester's first win at The Rec since 2012.

  3. FT: Bath 11-15 Gloucester

    Gloucester's game management in that second half was exemplary.

    Whether Willi Heinz grew up with that kind of atrocious weather in New Zealand I don't know but he played as if it was the norm.

    Port Talbot-lad James Hook definitely didn't have weather like that in beautiful Perpignan (sigh...), but he too adapted to the conditions.

    An excellent halves pairing.

  4. FT: 11-15 Gloucester

    The sportsmanship shown by the respective guards of honour at The Rec is admirable after a tough encounter.

    Gloucester chip their way into the top six, leapfrogging Wasps who play Newcastle tomorrow.

    Bath are ninth. Last year's Premiership finalists no less. Ninth.

  5. Full-time

    Bath 11-15 Gloucester

    Gloucester end Bath's five-game derby winning run with a thunderous performance in the second half.

    James Hook's boot did the damage, edging the visitors in front against a Bath side whose effort in desperation just wasn't enough.

    Full credit to the Cherry and Whites, who looked destined for a crushing in the first 20 minutes.

    For Mike Ford and Bath, the headaches continue. What can they do to arrest this slump? That's six losses in all competitions in succession now.

  6. Bath 11-15 Gloucester

    The drive continues. Then brought down. Bath still have possession close to the line.

    But Francois Louw is penalised, held on too long.

    Gloucester have nailed this.

  7. Bath 11-15 Gloucester

    Bath in the 22... they drive

  8. Bath 11-15 Gloucester

    Bath get a penalty. Matt Banahan slings it quickly into touch. Last roll of the dice.

  9. Bath 11-15 Gloucester

    Bath fail to execute. Throw not straight and the chink of light is swiftly restored to darkness.

    Time is running out. Gloucester can sense the win now as they snaffle line-out ball and move it through the backline.

    Horacio Agulla has it back for Bath though. Minute to go.

  10. Bath 11-15 Gloucester

    Gloucester get the feed midway in the Bath half but the penalty goes against them.

    Bath fired up now, they find touch and move into the Gloucester half.

  11. Bath 11-15 Gloucester

    Bath having to force the issue and in turn force an error.

    Matt Banahan spills from a simple kick forward, groans emit from the stands.

    Gloucester will take their time with this.

  12. Bath 11-15 Gloucester

    Gloucester are penalised when Billy Twelvetrees fails to release midway inside the Bath half.

    The penalty is cheered like a try.

    Five to go. Bath try to maul their way forward.

  13. Bath 11-15 Gloucester

    Gloucester, comforted by a four-point buffer, are able to just bash Bath back with clearance kicks.

    The home side know they need to run this ball but they have no field position and the wind is hampering their chance to gain it from the boot of Dan Bowden.

  14. Bath 11-15 Gloucester

    Willi Heinz

    Maultime by Bath. Then a chip by Chris Cook which Willi Heinz just gathers and whacks away down field.

    Kick tennis, aerial pingpong - whatever you want to call it ensues.

  15. Bath 11-15 Gloucester

    After a string of Gloucester penalties, Bath players and fans cheer a chance to kick for touch as the visitors are pinged.

    Bath find touch. They want a second try.

  16. Bath 11-15 Gloucester

    What has happened to Bath since last season?

    Sure, Kyle Eastmond has limped off and they're without a few players on international duty but there are still some world-class members of that squad.

    Their slide is unfathomable.

    Meanwhile, as we close in on the last 10, there is frustration as the scrum head and feed Gloucester has to be reset...

  17. Bath 11-15 Gloucester

    Meanwhile, Hook's Welsh compatriot Richard Hibbard is led away from the field with blood streaming from his face. Ouch.

  18. Missed penalty (Hook)

    Bath 11-15 Gloucester

    Bath are pinged for lifting the leg at the ruck but James Hook is unable to bisect the posts from a tightish angle.

  19. Penalty (Hook)

    Bath 11-15 Gloucester

    James Hook

    No problem close to the sticks. Gloucester's advantage creeps up once more.

  20. Bath 11-12 Gloucester

    Gloucester get the penalty! Right in front of the posts.

    Real pressure, Heinz had picked a gap in the line and Bath were always scrambling.

    Hook is going to kick.
