Dowson aiming to break records

Phil Dowson admits Warriors are focused on setting a new Club record this Saturday when they take on London Irish at Sixways (kick-off 5.30pm).

His side have won three matches on the spin and can potentially win their fourth consecutive Aviva Premiership game for the first time in history against the league's bottom side.

And the England international won’t be letting the focus and intensity slip ahead of the game.

He said: “We need to make sure our systems and our processes are right up there with our emotions so we can do something that’s not been done before.

“To go four on the bounce would be a huge confidence boost and something that we can take forward.”

Warriors now sit in tenth place – 13 points clear of the Exiles with five games to play – and Dowson has praised the efforts of everyone at the Club after a remarkable run of form which has seen the Sixways side win four of their last five games.

He continued: “Everyone’s now on the same page and all our coaches have done an unbelievable job to get us all working together.

“We’re very proud of the way we play and we’re hungry for work and so far that’s been good. We know every week we have to put massive effort in to get those rewards.”

The flanker has also paid tribute to London Irish's recent performances, which has seen the Reading-based side cut the deficit at the bottom of the table to just five points after apparently being cut adrift just a few weeks ago.

He added: “I’ve watched them recently during their win against Gloucester and they were unlucky to lose against Saracens. 

“They’ve got a lot of good players and a lot of pride so I have no doubt they’ll come all guns blazing this weekend.

“I think it’ll be attritional and full-on. It’ll be very aggressive because there is a lot at stake. We need to make sure that we come out properly.”
