A player who is as honest as the come and truly plays for Worcester

He acknowledges he has not grasped the nettle to nail down a starting spot but insists there is only one route back to his best.

“There are certain aspects of my game that have not been as good as they have been in the past,” said van Velze.

“That’s going to happen in your career, there will be times when you’re on top and times when you’re not and I am clearly at a stage when I am not on top of my game.

“Sadly, the only way you correct that is to play more and more rugby and all any rugby player wants is an equal opportunity to play well.

“I have had opportunities where I haven’t played well so it is a matter of time where I have to go and assess where I am and what I can bring to my game.

“It is almost similar to players who have long-term injuries, they come back really refreshed so I just have to find that point of difference within the game, the 80 minutes we play.

I am sure the vast majority of the players will also know when they are not hitting their straps and are all trying to get there.

it's going to take a lot to replace Cornell

VV wasn't first choice when he left Northampton

Replace Cornell? As in covering him while he’s away?

In that sense yes I agree completely. For me GJ is far too slight to be a number 8. He’s definitely not a big ball carrier in my eyes and I always saw him as a 6.

Cornell is that aggressive hard man you need in the back row and breaks the gainline but other than him we don’t really have any big monsters like a Nathan Hughes or Alex Dombrandt that cover Cornell as of yet.

The last one we had that was huge was Semesi Taulava
