In 1999/2000, Saint-Andre's first full season, a third-place finish took Gloucester into the Heineken Cup. With Phil Vickery, Trevor Woodman, Kingsley Jones and All Blacks legend Ian Jones forming the basis of a formidable pack, Gloucester Rugby marched their way to the last four. This being before the playoffs were introduced to decide the Champion team, therefore no Premiership final as we know it today was played.
Phillippe Saint-Andre left the club on a positive note, being chaired off the pitch by Gloucester supporters following his last game in charge against London Irish. Saint-Andre had put the blueprint in place to enable Gloucester to win their first cup in 25 years in 2003, under new coach Nigel Melville.
