Finally got round to watching the full match highlights.

I can definitely see why Mark Wilson was selected as man of the match. He is an absolute warrior (firstly, we've known that for a few years and secondly he isn't a Worcester player). Complete all around performance; scored the winning try, high volume of tackles, line breaks, offloads and a few vital turnovers. He looked like a player who was motivated to put his name back into the forefront of the England selectors. Keep playing like that Mark and it won't take them long to realise you need to be a permanent fixture in the England squad. Outstanding.

Chris Harris had a very good game. Ran good lines, brilliant link up play, gained lots of metres, solid defensively and scored the penultimate try. Can't see how Mermoz and Matavesi will be picked ahead of JPS and Harris for Friday.

Stuart looked lively when he came on, Latu was industrious, DTH looked assured in his brief touches, Welch had a great game (was good to see him make metres).

Only slight concern might be the scrum at the start of the second half. It got demolished on a couple of occasions. Vickers and Welsh have played lots of minutes. I hope they can last until Exeter and they are given a rest for the cup. Still areas to improve but that performance sets us up nicely against Irish who should not be underestimated.

I'd have taken 3 wins out of the first 6 at the start of the season but we have a real opportunity to kick on now.
