A great afternoon. 1-23 deserve all of the plaudits, as do all of the coaches and staff for having the boys perfectly tuned in for a match that could easily have slipped away after 1 minute.

The front 5 were awesome but a word for the back row too. Up against more experienced oppo, they were outstanding, with immense workrate and dog. I must say, Bayliss looks like the real deal this season. It looks like he’s put on a bit of weight but hasn’t lost his speed. With Louw and Underhill to learn from, he could be some player. Ellis delivered an outstanding Tom Ellis performance and Mercer just gets better and better. All young men. All really stood up.

The leadership was also very impressive from the coaches down through skipper to the senior players. Our 9-10-12 ran the game well and marshalled us in a way we’ve missed on many occasions for many seasons.

Far from perfect in style. But near perfect in terms of attitude and commitment. Add in Hatley and our World Cup stars (and Faletau) and, with that set piece, we should be able to match most teams.
