I wasn't at the game - but watched a recording of it last night.  I already new the result though.
One area that I wasn't impressed with was the number of penalties that we gave away around the 50 minute mark.  We probably gave away 5 in fairly quick succession.
On a different day with a different ref, we could easily have received a yellow card.  Especially as we had also given away a few penalties during the 1st half while in the danger zone. 
The only positive from this is that we gave away no more penalties after receiving a warning.

Some of the penalities in that sequence seemed pretty harsh to me. Was certain we'd end up conceding a yellow and then the try, but for a change we didn't. I was pleased to see that we contested a few more lineouts on Saturday. It was so frustrating last season to see us refuse to contests any 5m lineouts, so that we could set our defence to stop their maul, but then fail to stop it (legally) anyway. It became so predictable. Better to mix it up

My particular favourite was when we gave away a penalty for '3 separate offences'!!

3 for the price of 1 if you commit them fast enough
