Haskell: We’ve got a ti­tle in us

The Rugby Paper - - Aviva Premiership -

WORCES­TER failed to ban­ish their rel­e­ga­tion wor­ries and boss Alan Solomons said: “The 15 min­utes be­fore half-time killed us and if you turn over ball against a qual­ity side like Wasps, you pay the price.

“We were on the back foot for large parts, Wasps have X-fac­tor play­ers and we’ve got to work hard now ahead of a mas­sive game against Har­lequins.”

Wasps stal­wart James Haskell reck­ons his side can claim the ti­tle. He said: “When you see the way we can per­form and the tal­ent in our back­line, I be­lieve we have a cham­pi­onship in us. It’s now about de­ci­sion­mak­ing, be­ing ruth­less at the right times and do­ing the bor­ing bits very well.”

Yel­low card aside, back rower Jack Willis im­pressed. Haskell added: “He’s great over the ball and you’d think he’s knock­ing on Eng­land’s door.”

Danny Cipri­ani passed his HIA, but Dai Young said: “He com­pleted all the pro­to­cols but af­ter a knock at Sale last week it was my de­ci­sion to take him off.”

Chris­tian Wade’s dou­ble took his league tally to ten. Young added: “By his own ad­mis­sion he’s had a flat spell but he’s back to his elec­tric best.”
