Clearly it was a horrible, turgid, ugly game that we didn't really deserve to win, but despite only 3 phases in the opposition 22 after 70 minutes we kept to within a one try score and punished them at the end of the game.

As others have rightfully said, these are the types of games that we would of usually lost and not even gain a LBP over the past 2-3 seasons so you have to praise the players for their doggedness. Top sides win ugly.

Calum Green, my fellow county man, had to be MOTM. The line out steal specialist done a great job disrupting their line out. Takelua was his usual consistent self. Goneva looked like he has never been away and already looks at the peak of his powers, which just goes to show his quality. Special mention to the replacement front row, who done a magnificent job considering the inexperience of Socino and Davidson. Even with them playing the scrum was dominant.

It sets us up nicely for the USA. After 2 wins and playing at a neutral ground makes it a no pressure game for us and allows us to enjoy the experience. With a few star players back we will be competitive.
