Just managed to catch the extended highlights (didn’t want to comment without seeing some of it for myself).

I think context is important. We’d effectively had a month off so I think there was almost certainly an element of rustiness. The defence didn’t look great, but reading through the thread, Worcester haven’t been given a great deal of credit. Some of their tries were very good (Adams’ in particular) and where as much to do with a good attack and quality offloading as they were with our defence.

PG’s had our defence working really well up until now, so I’d back him to fix it pretty quickly. As others have said, this is effectively an ideal opportunity for him to b*llock the team in a situation where we still managed to pick up 5 points.

One question - it looked like Dombrandt and Smith went off early 50 something minutes in. Is it coincidence that we got worse after they went off or not?
