Post match reaction from Viadana

We caught up with Dai Young after the record 90-17 win over Viadana.

“I couldn’t have asked for any more from the boys. They totally dominated from start to finish. Our set piece was very good, we had bite in our defence and we looked fluid in attack. Some of our passing was excellent and those passes that haven’t been sticking for us the last few weeks started to do so really well.

"This win will give the boys plenty of confidence and in many ways it was just what we needed. There were some excellent individual performances but this was all about us achieving as a team and getting that confidence into our attacking game. Viadana were a very committed team and they didn’t give up but we were too strong all over.

"We have a small squad so it was great to have a chance to give guys game time and many guys a debut. We need to do that when we can. We didn’t expect the scoreline today but we are delighted with that effort.

"We now have a very short turnaround as we play on Thursday night. Bayonne have gotten off to a good start with a bonus point win and I am sure they will come to Adams Park targeting that win that would put them in the driving seat in the pool at this early stage. That game is going to be a big step up from this weekend and they have some excellent players. They aren’t firing just yet in France, but that is a very tough league. We expect a huge challenge."
