We must im­prove from here – Gold

The Rugby Paper - - Aviva Premiership -

WORCES­TER head coach Gary Gold lamented: “We could have won that game!

“Our scrum needs to im­prove and silly er­rors cost us as we seem to go walk­a­bout for ten min­utes in most games. You can’t af­ford to kick the ball out on the full as we did on two or three oc­ca­sions.

“How­ever it was still a strong per­for­mance as we went toe to toe with them. I’m proud of the ef­fort we put in but I am never go­ing to cel­e­brate a loss.

“Next sea­son we need to con­tinue to im­prove and hope­fully we won’t have the con­stant threat of rel­e­ga­tion hang­ing over us.”

Le­ices­ter’s head coach, Matt O’Con­nor said: “It was tough as Worces­ter un­der Gary Gold are very com­mit­ted.

“It was an ideal dress re­hearsal for the semi-fi­nal as it was all about win­ning, which we did with a strong scrum and a much im­proved line-out.

“I’m pleased we don’t have to go to Sara­cens but Wasps are a fan­tas­tic side. If you blink, they’ll score.

“We com­peted very well up there in the league ear­lier in the sea­son and it was only one score in it at the end so if we are at our best, I be­lieve we can win.”
