However, Cowan was more concerned about setting up tries for those outside him, he told Thisisgloucestershire.co.uk after a 22-13 win over Plymouth Albion. Gloucester lost to Munster 17-28 a week earlier.
"My main focus is to set the backline up for the tries though, I've got to feed the ball to these backs and get them in their natural running habitat," he said.
Cowan said his main concern in the past two weeks had been about getting over a mental hurdle from his knee worries.
"That's 110 minutes of rugby now, so I'm feeling pretty confident going into the season.
"A dry ball made a big difference today from the horrid weather of last week.
"We ticked the box of victory but we still need to sharpen up. At least a lot of guys got a run though, and that's important," he said.
