JP - I do appreciate the effort you have put in to establish the team last year had very little difference in strength, however:

I must not have put my point of view across properly, one of the reasons we are losing as you so rightly say is because we are not scoring tries, we are not scoring trying because of injury we do not have experienced playmakers at 9 and 10 on the pitch which also has meant a lack of continuity.

For the first 5 games last year we had the same scrum half starting in Johnny Arr with Luke Baldwin on the bench, that was for all of the first 5 games.

Fly half for the first 5 games last year was swapped between Tom Heathcote and Ryan Lamb and those two only.

This Year:

Falcons - Heathcote replaced by Olver on 55 mins
Wasps - Heathcote replaced by Olver on 43 mins
Chiefs - Heathcote replaced by Olver on 11 mins, replaced by Shillcock on 53 mins
Gloucs - Mills on four the whoel game, 3 tries and a losing bonus point away, considerably better than last year as I was there....
Sarries - Shillcock for the whole game

Therefore my point is there is a definitive reason this year that we are not scoring tries and winning, with players back from injury I think we are in a better place, and so from his later interview does Gary Gold.
