The 2005–06 season saw an improvement in the club's fortunes, although they did not qualify for the playoffs, they were strong contenders and lost out on the last day of the regular season. They also won silverware in the European Challenge Cup, defeating London Irish in a tense final that went into extra time. This season was also the last we saw of many Academy graduates such as James Forrester, who was forced to retire through injury the following season.
Gloucester Rugby finished 1st in the 2006/2007 Guinness Premiership table. Both Leicester and Gloucester Rugby tied with 71 points, but Gloucester Rugby gained first place with more games won. Gloucester Rugby defeated Saracens in the semi-final at Kingsholm, 50–9, to move into the Twickenham final where they faced Leicester Tigers.
However, Gloucester Rugby were beaten heavily by the Tigers with the final score being 44–16, Gloucester Rugby again being defeated by a better prepared team. Despite tehir strength in the League system, they failed to progess beyond the group stage of the Heineken Cup.
