Just managed to catch the extended highlights (didnít want to comment without seeing some of it for myself).

I think context is important. Weíd effectively had a month off so I think there was almost certainly an element of rustiness. The defence didnít look great, but reading through the thread, Worcester havenít been given a great deal of credit. Some of their tries were very good (Adamsí in particular) and where as much to do with a good attack and quality offloading as they were with our defence.

PGís had our defence working really well up until now, so Iíd 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?

Iíve also only seen the extended highlights, but absolutely agree that Worcester scored some classy tries with 1st class offloading.

We should have defended better, but, letís give them some credit.   We will know much more next week.  Iím still feeling good.  Very few of us expected us to be realistically hoping to make top 4 this season
