Speaking after the game he said: "I am delighted to come here and win. It's a massive challenge for any team to visit Kingsholm and play like that. We were great in most things that we had done.
He added: "We waivered in the middle of it, which is expected at a place like this, but the players' effort was outstanding and I'm delighted for everyone involved. "
When asked if there was a stand-out performance he replied: "Across the board we were great today. We had a great last scrum when we had someone just sin-binned and won a penalty from it. Just in general terms, there were a lot of good performances.
"I thought we were pretty special in controlling the tackle area and the contact area. As a group performance it was a great win for us."
He said: "It was a great start to the season. We were looking at this away game as a one-off big test for us at the start of the season. In that first half we played pretty well with the wind behind us and got enough of an advantage. We made it hard for ourselves in the second half but we showed some spirit to hang in there and win."
He added: "I had faith that we could hang in there and we defended really well in the closing stages. We conceded one try which was a lapse through our midfield but other than that we defended well and showed some heart."
"It's a big occasion to win at Gloucester I am told however we have a six day turnaround until a big game against Newcastle at home."
Dan added, " Our supporters may have been outnumbered but they certainly did a great job and we were delighted to be able to go and see them after the game to spend some time with them and thank them for their support."
