FORMER Dursley player Ben Morgan insists Gloucester will find the winning formula soon.

Gloucester have lost their last five Aviva Premiership games and sit third from bottom of the table but remain second in Heineken Cup Pool 6 despite suffering a 16-10 home defeat against Edinburgh on Sunday.

“Wins do wonders for the environment,” said Gloucester and England No8 Morgan.

“To be able to get the winning mentality and mindset is going to do wonders. It is just about getting into a winning rhythm.

“We haven't started the Premiership exactly how we wanted to. The Heineken Cup is a different competition and it has got different and just getting to that winning mentality again is going to be crucial.

“We want it to have a reputation of being a hard place to come, where people have a hard time getting points. It is not too late to turn it around.”

Morgan believes there is cause for optimism, having taken great strides to resolve their early-season issues in the pack.

He said: “I definitely feel as if we have had to adjust. At the start of the season we had an idea of what we wanted to do and we have had to change and adapt.

“It is about how we react to that so we are really focussed on tightening up.”
