The Adams Park based side broke their duck after beating London Irish last weekend and the youngster admitted that his side have a good feeling about the trip.

“I think Kingsholm is a hard place to go but this year, and last year, we had that mentality that we want to go out and win every game,” he said.

“This year we have a good feeling about it.”

After last season’s struggles, the 19-year-old just wants to be looking upwards come the business end of the season.

“We don’t want to be looking behind us,” he explained. “Last year we got caught by people below us.”

“We thought we played well in the first 60 minutes against Quins.

“We knew we had the 80 minute performance in us.

“It’s important to win all your home games as then you can go away and get some wins on the road.”

The last campaign was Daly’s debut season as a regular the first XV and he sees no difference to how he will play this time around.

“I learnt a lot very quickly,” he added. “I’ve treated it as the same this year.

“I just need to keep my 13 shirt for as long as possible.

“With the experience of Stephen Jones you learn a lot.”

Daly has been working a lot with Andrea Masi and he revealed that the pair have a very close relationship.

“He talks to you and goes out with you to help you with training,” he revealed. “Usually we have a heart to heart on a Monday morning after the game and see how we cooperated together.

“It’s nothing in particular. We make sure that we’re connected.”
