Cotswold Male Voice Choir at Kingsholm

Comments (12)

Gloucester Rugby fans already have one famous, rousing chant, as Shed regulars who belt out 'Glaaawwwwwwsssteeeeeeeerrrr' will certainly testify.

But after last weekend's Cotswold Male Voice Choir Kingsholm appearance, another one appears to be in the pipeline.

They came up with a cunning reworking of the Men of Harlech - the Men of Gloucester. It went down very well and now its lyrics are being circulated on social media ahead of the Cherry and Whites' 6pm Saturday showdown with Munster in the Heineken Cup.

It could go head-to-head at Kingsholm with the Irish fans' renditions of Fields of Athenry.

For those who fancy brushing up on just how it goes, here it is in full:

Fans of Gloucester stop your dreaming,

Can’t you see the shed is filling?

See their shirts and scarves are streaming,

To this rugby field.

Men of Gloucester bind together

Gloucester Rugby stands forever

Fill Kingsholm what e’er the weather

Gloucester never yield!

Through the crowd abounding (Gloucester!)

Let this call be sounding (Gloucester!)

Summon all to Gloucester’s call

To get their heartbeats pounding

Men of Gloucester on to glory

Heart and courage be your story

Keep these burning words before ye:

Gloucester never yield!

    Harden has proved time and time again, what a class act he is and why the scrum becomes less of a force without him.

    Harden = Gloucester Rugby's first choice tight head. No doubt about it!

    Harden has been an absolute star this season. He deserves an early contract renewal for the great effort he has put in this season.

    Harden has had a storming season. It is no wonder he is selected to start the most games of all the front row forwards. And not just any old games. It is the key games where you need your best players.

    Harden is the number 1 tight head at Gloucester Rugby. If the sad lonely old mad and multi-ID RENT-A-QUOTE troll Walker100b aka gloslover-not/dumbanddumber20/dopey-lerone, ever gets to a Gloucester Rugby game he could see that for himself but he never goes to any games because the matron at his home never lets him out, so he spends all his lonely hours on the net trolling. He doesn't even support Gloucester anyway.

    Laughing at the clueless Gloucester Rugby and Rupҽrt Hardҽn hating RENT-A-QUOTE multi-troll Walker100b aka gloslover-not/dopey-lerone/bikeshed/dumbanddumber20 pretending that he knows anything about rugby or that he is remotely interested in Gloucester Rugby. He is getting so upset because his "partner" has sprung a leak and Halfords isn't open so that he can get a puncture repair kit. Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!

    The useless Gloucester Rugby and Rupҽrt Hardҽn hating RENT-A-QUOTE multi-troll Walker100b aka dopey-lerone/dumbanddumber20 is upset because he has been found out using another of his Gloucester Rugby hating troll identities. Now he is on his big-baby anti-Rupҽrt Hardҽn mega-rant just because Harden has proved him so wrong time after time with his brilliant displays of tight head rugby.

    Ha! Ha! Ha! Laugh at the useless Gloucester Rugby and Rupҽrt Hardҽn hating RENT-A-QUOTE multi-troll Walker100b aka shedheadNEVER aka gloslover-not or DumbAndDumber20 or dopey_lerone if he prefers. He is soooo upset that he has been found out with his latest identity. He knows absolutely nothing about rugby union, sat in his sad home for sad lonely old men.

    Laugh at the clueless Gloucester Rugby and Rupҽrt Hardҽn multi-ID RENT-A-QUOTE troll Walker100b. He wouldn't know his ȧrse from his elbow. Harden is a superb player and rightly Gloucester Rugby's first choice in the No. 3 shirt.
