Lewis is Test class insists Solomons
WORCESTER boss Alan Solomons singled out flanker Sam Lewis after another outstanding display by the 27-year-old.
Lewis gained the plaudits for his turn-over which gave Worcester crucial possession to start the attack for their fourth try in the first half.
Worcester’s director of rugby said: “I think he’s a terrific player. Some people say he’s too small but I think he’s an international class player.”
Solomons added: “I thought in the first half we played some really good stuff and scored some really good tries.
“But the second half fell away as a game. We had very little possession and it was disappointing. We defended resolutely but it was disappointing.”
Solomons said it was important that Worcester had maintained their momentum in winning a fifth match in a row in all competitions.
“We will have to look at selection for next week’s game against Saracens. We only have a six-day turn-around before we play Bath so we will look at things.”
The scale of Leicester’s declining form was reflected in an aftermatch Tweet by club historian Stuart Farmer.
Farmer revealed Worcester were only the third team in the last 40 years to win three successive matches at Welford Road following the Barbarians (97-98) and Saracens (2010-11).
