The Coach’s View: Alex Austerberry

We aren’t any worse off and we aren’t any higher off after the draw with Harlequins.

We nonetheless management every little thing and it’s essential to not lose to a rival that can be there within the play-offs.

It was a sparring match slightly than a knock-out blow. We confirmed actual grit to bounce again from being behind twice to earn two factors, and that was take a look at of character.

Each groups had alternatives to place the sport additional away however each stayed within the battle and in the end we now management our future going into the final two rounds of the league season, which is a good place to be in.

You possibly can’t query any of the physicality or power proven, there was some nice rugby performed however at occasions once we had a possibility to actually flip the screw, they discovered a means of relieving that stress.

A few of that was via their very own play and a few was from a number of focus lapses on our half, which is one thing we wish to enhance transferring ahead.

On prime of that there have been different components to have a look at, for instance width to width and the kick trade battle have been massive turns of worth for each groups.

We discovered options to numerous issues and we’ve developed once more in that space, so hopefully we will kick on within the subsequent few weeks.

Whichever three different groups make it to the play-offs, they’ve all seen the degrees of their efficiency transfer on. That features us and Quins as nicely, no-one has stood nonetheless.

Transferring on to Loughborough, this Saturday is a vastly essential fixture, first versus fourth. If we get a bonus level win, we’re assured to complete prime of the league and our subsequent two targets are guaranteeing a house play-off berth after which the league title too.

It’s not usually that you simply’ll hear me speaking about profitable the league and ending first but when we do nicely and put in efficiency in our subsequent recreation, that’s the by-product.

We’ve bought enterprise to do and we’re again specializing in the areas the place Loughborough will problem us, but in addition the place we can be challenged over the subsequent two months with a semi-final and doubtlessly a remaining to return!
