London Welsh and Gloucester Rugby both came into the 2014-15 Aviva Premiership season with vastly differing ambitions, though they did have one thing in common in that both clubs had seen a big turn round in playing staff during the summer.

Three rounds into the new campaign, and the ambitions of both clubs already look in tatters. For all the noises coming out of the Kassam Stadium, the realistic ambition is merely to survive their first season back in the Premiership, and to avoid tumbling back into the Championship, as happened last time they were in the top tier of the English club game. However, the Exiles only league point to date was a try bonus during their defeat at Bath in Round 2, and they have conceded over 150 points in their three fixtures so far The last time that London Welsh tasted success in the Premiership was at home to Worcester in the final round of the 2012/13 season.

Gloucester have failed to gel as a side so far, and have managed just one win from three games, a come from behind 34-27 victory against Sale Sharks at Kingsholm in Round 2. With the Exiles defensive frailties, it is difficult to see them beating the Cherry and Whites for the first time in a competitive fixture since January 1983, when they triumphed in the third round of the then John Player Cup.
