Press Conference Notes 28.11.17

Warriors Director of Rugby Gary Gold spoke to the media today ahead of Friday night’s game with Sale Sharks at Sixways.

Here’s what he had to say:

  • The win over Leicester Tigers was one of the closest to an all-round performance we have put in this season.
  • We defended well and managed territory, causing chaos in attack and taking our opportunities.
  • We must improve our discipline after a high penalty count at the weekend.
  • We talk about it on a regular basis – how important these performances are for our fans.
  • Every bonus point is critical come the end of the season. There is a long way to go.
  • We can’t afford to get complacent ahead of this Friday’s game. Sale have a big pack and plenty of talent among their backs.
  • Our focus must be on ourselves.
  • The fans play a huge part and we need them to try and help us over the line on Friday.
  • Talks are ongoing with players about new contracts.
  • Consistency is key and hopefully we can keep the core group together.
  • Matt Cox is just a couple of weeks from a return following his bicep injury.
  • Biyi Alo is out for a week with a toe injury.
  • GJ van Velze has a rib issue that will be managed conservatively until Thursday and then reviewed.
