Very odd comments. I thought Quins played outstndingly in attack and were as good ball in hand than when i can remember this season. Defensively too easily broken out wide which cost us. When dealing with the scrum Pearson isnt up to it, Wood was collapsng his arm in so JJ could never get a bind and blind Dave coincidentally gave that shocking decision against WAsps (playing Exeter) last week for exactly the same thing. We have had Gloucs in the scrum in all previous 3 games this season so what changes? inept ref although cant have any complaints when our subs came on. second best at scrum time then!!
jj got pinged all day long.......it happens sometimes. I expect him to come back stronger, that's the kind of man he is.
I would like to hear from Fairbrother defenders what they thought of his "shoring up" our scrum when he came on.
What a gmae though. One of those you don't mind losing because it was a great advert for rugby, power, pace, inventiveness. Wonderful to watch.
I think the difference was te set piece, they mullered us a the lineout and the scrum
