  1. A superb Saturday

    Well, what a day that was!

    The benchmark for a Premiership Saturday has just been raised significantly. Four outstanding matches, more points than you can shake a stick and oodles of drama from start to finish.

    Thank you for joining us throughout and if you've missed anything then do take a peruse through the rugby union pages here at BBC Sport. Until next time...

  2. Still to come....

    Sale v Worcester (Sunday, 15:00 BST)

    As just mentioned, there's still one more match to come before round two is done and dusted.

    It's a trip to Greater Manchester on Sunday afternoon as Sale and Worcester round off the action at the AJ Bell Stadium from 15:00 BST. They'll be online radio commentary on the BBC Sport website.

  3. Points, points and more points

    Leicester Tigers try

    A quick bit of mental arthritic shows that a staggering 327 points have been scored so far this weekend and there's still one game to go! Here's a reminder of all of the Round 2 result so far:

    • Northampton 25-18 Harlequins
    • Wasps 31-42 Exeter
    • Saracens 44-23 Bristol
    • Leicester 49-33 Newcastle
    • Bath 31-31 Gloucester
  4. 'Bath blew it'

    FT: Bath 31-31 Gloucester

    Jeremy Guscott

    Ex-England centre on BBC Radio 5 live

    Gloucester will be pleased considering the position they were in

    It was a great second-half performance from Bath - it was committed, full of tactics and strategy with the half-backs controlling the game.

    Well done to them for coming back but you had the opportunity from being nowhere to winning the game and they blew it.

  5. Full-time: Bath 31-31 Gloucester

    After 34 minutes Gloucester had a comfortable 21-0 advantage but the home side gained a crucial score before the break and held their nerve to bounce back on the largest of derby stages.

    Once again Danny Cipriani produced more magic in Gloucester colours, Semesa Rokoduguni had some majestic moments of his own in blue, black and white and you can't ask for more when a Premiership derby goes down to the wire, can you?

    Bath v Gloucester
  6. Try: Bath 31-31 Gloucester

    Matt Banahan, con Billy Twelvetrees

    Last weekend Danny Cipriani left us all enraptured by his no-look missed-pass to Charlie Sharples and ocne again he produces magic.

    It's his ball, under significant pressure, that beats the defenders and there's no stopping Matt Banahan once it gets to him and he has the line in sight. Billy Twelvetrees converts to level the game.

  7. Post update

    Bath 31-24 Gloucester

    Matt Banahan takes the ball off the restart and shows his former team-mate that he has aerial skills too.

    A high-tackle from Semesa Rokoduguni hands Gloucester a penalty and they put it deep into the corner.

    This time Bath collapse the maul and Gloucester work it to the far right... you know the man that's waiting there don't you? Banahan.

  8. Try: Bath 31-24 Gloucester

    Elliot Stooke, con Rhys Priestland

    Elliott Stooke scores for Bath

    The Recreation Ground is buzzing as Bath gain a penalty and Rhys Priestland puts it as close to the line as you can get.

    Bath secure the lineout and have a penalty advantage because the Cherry and Whites collapse the maul.

    They work patiently and eventually create the numbers out wide so that the former Gloucester man can score. Rhys Priestland nails the conversion from the left-hand touchline.

  9. Penalty: Bath 24-24 Gloucester

    Rhys Priestland

    Immediately Rhys Priestland cancels out the visitors slender lead. Bath's field position arrived as a result of Semesa Rokoduguni's outstanding take of the kick-off... it was stunning.

  10. Penalty: Bath 21-24 Gloucester

    Billy Twelvetrees

    Billy Twelvetrees

    It's an easy kick for Billy Twelvetrees and Gloucester edge in front. There's plenty of time left in this derby encounter though.

  11. 'Good on Bath'

    Bath 21-21 Gloucester

    Jeremy Guscott

    Ex-England centre on BBC Radio 5 live

    Bath have had the ascendancy in this second half unbelievably after their poor performance in the first but good on them, they went for it and they've got it.

  12. Post update

    Bath 21-21 Gloucester

    Jason Woodward decides that it's time to take matters into his own hands and he makes 50 metres with his pace and dancing feet.

    Gloucester are working with an advantage and Matt Banahan tries to drive himself in out wide. Bath concede the penalty and Billy Twelvetrees instantly looks to the posts.

  13. Try: Bath 21-21 Gloucester

    Tom Dunn, con Rhys Priestland

    It all started from an excellent turnover and a kick forwards that pounced up kindly for Semesa Rokoduguni.

    Once again it's the powerful work from close-quarters that results in the try.

    The roars ring around the Recreation Ground as Rhys Priestland converts after Tom Dunn darts over for his second of the game from close range and now we have a box-office finish on the way. This is a now a real contest and a big one at that!

  14. Post update

    Bath 14-21 Gloucester

    Charlie Sharples injury

    The crowd applaud Charlie Sharples as he leaves the field of play and the match restarts with a Bath scrum.

    The scrum is a strong one but Taulupe Faletau knocks-on trying to get the ball away and hands Gloucester a fresh put-in

  15. 'No one is stamping their authority'

    Bath 14-21 Gloucester

    Sara Orchard

    BBC rugby union commentator on BBC Radio 5 live

    As soon as you think one team is making headway the other team just comes fighting right back into it.

    No one is stamping their authority on this second half at all.

  16. Friends reunited

    Bath 14-21 Gloucester

    Matt Banahan and Semesa Rokoduguni just getting to know each other again now that they're on different sides!

    Bath v Gloucester wingers
  17. Post update

    Bath 14-21 Gloucester

    Charlie Sharples is receiving excellent care from the medial staff and will leave the field on a stretcher. We hope that he recovers swiftly. Mark Atkinson is coming on as his replacement.

    Todd Blackadder has decided that Freddie Burns' working day is done and Rhys Priestland will orchestrate their proceedings from ten for the final quarter of this match.

  18. Post update

    Bath 14-21 Gloucester

    It looked to have been a bit of cramp as Freddie Burns is back on his feet. As Joe Cokanasiga breaks forward for Bath, Charlie Sharples gets his head on the wrong side and stays down.

    Referee Luke Pearce instantly stops the game and both sides move into huddles as the medical staff attend to Sharples.

  19. Post update

    Bath 14-21 Gloucester

    Gloucester looked to be finding a little bit of fluidity but Tom Dunn gains a huge turnover.

    Bath have their tails up and Sam Underhill surges forwards after a Freddie Burns crossfield kick but Burns has injured himself.

    The Cherry and Whites are on the halfway line, Henry Trinder nearly bursts free but the sparky back is contained.

  20. 'Gloucester must stay in Bath's half'

    Bath 14-21 Gloucester

    Jeremy Guscott

    Ex-England centre on BBC Radio 5 live

    Bath v Gloucester

    The difference between the teams in the first half was that you had the half-backs bossing the game and it's been a bit of a role reversal so far in the second.

    What Gloucester have got to do is keep in Bath's half to keep the crowd quiet.
