Interesting view from Bristol fan;

Had to smile when Pat Lam said that defensive display was not us! Sorry but I have been watching Bristol a bit longer than him and it is all about us! I just hope he can get some discipline into the side.
We were never n any danger of losing that one, but looked the same at Pirates until...
We seem to not have a game plan to close a game out. At HT the players should have been told (and may have been) that stopping Bedford scoring was more important than us playing champagne rugby and running in a few more. And what do we do - let in 4 more tries. We were running the ball from our own line, giving penalties away in our own half for fun - must have been over a dozen in the second half. How no-one was sent to the bin we will never know. And Bedford finished looking the fitter of the sides over the last 20.
Don't get me wrong. it was a very entertaining game with some great running rugby. But we need to get away from the "we will score more tries than you" mentality which is what it was on Saturday.
