Skipper Sanderson demands response

Skipper Pat Sanderson admits his Worcester Warriors have no time to dwell on the defeat at Bristol and must rediscover some consistency as they prepare for two games in four days.

Warriors face Harlequins on Wednesday and Saracens at Sixways Stadium on Saturday as they prepare for a crunch week in the Guinness Premiership.

Sanderson has regrouped his troops after the defeat at the Memorial Stadium and admits the entire squad must now produce a positive reaction with their future still in their own hands.

“We just want to move on because it was very, very disappointing to lose at Bristol,” said Sanderson.

“We haven’t got time to dwell, we have got to reboot and get back out there and win some matches.

“There is no point in us getting nervous – it is still in our own hands by a long way. We just need to win games and perform consistently.

“Last week we beat Gloucester and I felt we beat them well. This week we showed a sub standard performance to what we know we can attain. Our goal now is consistency and we need to try and get that before the end of the season.”

“We showed for five minutes either side of half-time a glimpse of what we are capable of. But we would rather win by one point ugly than play nice rugby for five minutes,” added Sanderson.

“There is still so much for us to play for. We have an incredibly hard week coming up with Harlequins on Wednesday and then Saracens on Saturday and we must front up.”
