What do we think of that one then, folks? Definitely more of a "reckless" call rather than a "malicious" one. Either way, Worcester are down to 14 for the duration, and are now going to have to play damage control against a hungry Gloucester side that will be smelling blood.

Gloucester looking to capitalise, but give up another penalty. Sixways crowd rallying behind their team now. They'll need it.

Wayward up-and-under from Lamb falls incredibly luckily for Worcester, bouncing forward off a Gloucester hand and straight into the home side's hands. They also spill it, but they've got a scrum on halfway, which you'd imagine they'll be very glad for.

TRY WORCESTER! INCREDIBLE SCORE! PERRY HUMPHREYS OVER IN THE CORNER!

We're checking for a knock-on, though. They had penalty advantage from the scrum, but Dowson's fumbled it on the floor...

Did that go sideways? Was it off his foot if it did go forwards? Tight call, this, and once again, there's no big screen visible from the field, so it's all on the TMO...

The call is... OFF HIS FOOT! NO KNOCK-ON! TRY WORCESTER!

Whatever you think of the decision, what an unbelievable rally from the Warriors. The speed with which they started that play and, crucially, finished it after the midfield disintegration, was astonishing. Humphreys finished it as well as Te'o, who he replaced, ever could have. Tremendous. Less good is Lamb's touchline conversion, which he just pulls wide. Still, this lead looks comanding now.

Billy Burns replaced by Will Heinz, who goes to scrum-half, with Laidlaw stepping outside. Gloucester have worked it up to the Worcester 22, but the new man has passed it forward to give away the scrum... and has back-chatted Luke Pearce to give away the penalty! Silly, silly stuff.

Lamb misses touch with the penalty. Worcester can't afford mistakes with the basics like that, even with this lead.
