Young: Win shows signs of a growing team

Director of Rugby Dai Young gives his reaction to the 33-29 win over Gloucester.

"We were disappointed with how we played at halftime but pleased to be ahead. They should have been in front really but we had hung in there. We gave up a lot of possession amd were still ahead so we took the positives from it and talked about what we needed to change.

"For the first 20 minutes of the second half we stepped up and took our opportunities. Gloucester are a very good team and they showed that today so this is an important win for us. We coughed the ball up too much in the last ten minutes and they showed what they can do.

"We know we have enough threats to win games even when we are down, and today we didn't play well over 80 minutes but that is the mark of a team that is growing. You have to stick in there when you are not playing well and we did that. We stuck together and got the points on the board when we got the opportunities.

"It was a good game of rugby with two teams who really wanted to play rugby the right way. We are still growing as a team. We have a long way to go but we are heading in a very positive direction."
