Match Reaction: Brad Davis Post Sale

Wasps Defence coach gives his reaction to the 32-29 defeat to Sale Sharks in the LV=Cup.

After the game, Brad wasp philosophical about the narrow defeat. 

"We made quite a few changes ahead of this fixture. the guys had a pretty tough start to the season so it was important that we rotated the squad and give guys who haven't had much game time a chance to show what they can do. 

"I thought the effort and commitment was outstanding from a group who haven't played a lot of rugby and I felt we were desperately unlucky not to come away with a bit more out of the game. 

"There was a lot of guys out on the field today who haven't played at this level before and I thought they represented the club with distinction. Also the guys who were on the edge of the squad in the opening six weeks put themselves forward and showed what they can do. 

"Turning the corner at half time I felt we were in a pretty healthy position but too many unforced errors and our kicking game deserted us in the opening 10 minutes of the second half and that put us on the back foot. I was just saying to the guys in the dressing room that they are the key aspects that they need to get right when playing at this level. 

"We need to learn from it and put right the things that went wrong today."
