Now Fa’osiliva is getting fitter we’re starting to see how good he is. Although a Worthington did well again coming on with his turnovers.

We seem to be heading in the right direction since the Boxing Day embarrassment but why, oh why, do we lose so much of our own throw 10m out from the opposition try-line? Two possible tries literally thrown away in the last 10 minutes again.

There were periods of the game in which we produced some of the best running rugby I have ever seen at GR......there was some of the best defensive play we have seen for ages........however this game turned with the injury to Hooley .......which was followed by the now usual shuffling of the team.....

......there were five points on offer last night....but lets be thankful for the four we got......

Yes agreed Compo, we played some scintillating rugby at times, the backs were moving the ball so smoothly. I thought we left a few points out there though. Why they did not opt for 3 points twice, I really don’t know. That would have put us in a lesser risk of losing, had Cov scored. Anyway the end justifies the means, as they say.

We didn’t take 3 as we didn’t really have a kicker - Robling isn’t great. I’m also glad we didn’t attempt 3 for a few reasons

1. It would’ve just meant we’d probably draw if we conceded as we were only 4 points up
2. We need try bonus points and if we scored it’d kill the game.
3. The best form of defence is being 80+ metres from your own line rather than inviting pressure.

If Hooley had kicked that other poor penalty attempt in the 1st half that ended up short it wouldn’t have been an issue.

Another great performance from Oskar Hirskyj-Douglas, what a player he's turning into, another Rayer gem. Agree with Tryblues re Alafoti Fa’osiliva, really starting to see the best of him.

Not sure who made that tackle right at the end but whoever it was deserves MOM, definitely won us the game. The pass looked forward though.

We have gone from 11th to 8th in the table this weekend......can we get a much needed point or two at Ealing?
