No panic yet in­sist ‘buoy­ant’ War­riors

The Rugby Paper - - Aviva Premiership -

CARL Hogg re­mains stoic de­spite the War­riors record­ing six losses from six matches.

“We’d love to be sit­ting there with more points on the board, of course,” said the Worces­ter head coach.

“Let’s not panic and throw the baby out with the bath­wa­ter. It’s still a buoy­ant group. We’ve had three of the best teams come to Sixways.

“Our en­deav­our was re­ally high. But we need to be more clin­i­cal when we have op­por­tu­ni­ties in the op­po­si­tion 22.

“We’ve got to make sure we main­tain that ef­fort and use Europe as a re­fresher.

“Con­ced­ing a try just be­fore half time was a blow but I thought we re­cov­ered well. At no stage did Bath run away with it un­til the fi­nal few min­utes

“The de­lay caused by the Ta­puai in­jury broke the mo­men­tum just as we were build­ing.”

Bath’s dou­ble try-scorer Aled Brew said: “Last year we could have eas­ily lost this game. It shows how far we’ve come as a team.

“There was noth­ing spe­cial about those tries but it’s al­ways nice to get on the end of them.”
