Nigel Davies is delighted with the way Gloucester scored their tries against Edinburgh in the Heineken Cup on Sunday.

Gloucester coach Nigel Davies was full of praise for his side for the manner in which they scored their tries on Sunday.

The Premiership outfit earned a 22-12 win at Edinburgh in the Heineken Cup to move up to second in Pool 6, thanks to three tries in Scotland, including two from Martyn Thomas with one of them following a superb 50-yard run from Jonny May for the assist.

"It was a great try set up by Jonny May," Davies told reporters. "We have been disappointed with our performances this season, but to score a try like that will help our confidence.

"You can't coach that sort of thing, but what you can coach is how you set up opportunities like that. If that is one of your strengths then you have to give your team chances.

"But, in terms of what Jonny does when he gets the ball, I think the only one who know what he was going to do was Martyn Thomas, who came in for a short ball. Everyone else was completely confused by him, including me."

Gloucester host Edinburgh next weekend in the competition.
