“We played against a very experienced Worcester team today and we are delighted with the result. It wasn’t a perfect performance but I was pleased with a lot of aspects of our game. We lacked control at times but overall I was happy with the reaction from last week. We won most of the 50/50s and we looked urgent in a lot of departments.
“It was a real step up from the boys from last week. A lot of players today showed me what I felt I knew they could to. I always have confidence in these guys but they have to go out and push their claims. Last week they didn’t quite do that, this week a lot of them stood up and put pressure on me for selection. That is exactly what I want.
“We are in with a shout in this competition and it was just as important to put on a performance for our home fans. It was cold out there today and it was good to see so many turn out for us. Everyone is working hard off the field to get as many fans as we can here and if we can keep winning here we can help with that.
“I was very pleased with the bite we had in our game, especially up front where we produced a lot of quick ball and showed a lot of aggression in our breakdowns.
“The backrow worked very hard and all three of them and Haskell when he came on played really well and worked incredibly hard on the floor. It’s a good result for us.”
