Blair: "There was some really good stuff"

Blair: "There was some really good stuff"

Get the Quick Hits from Head Coach Mike Blair as he spoke to the media following Friday's EPCR Challenge Cup victory against CA Brive:

On things to improve

“Definitely. There was some really good stuff. Some of the transition with broken-field stuff was really good.

“Out in the middle of the pitch, the wind was something else so we struggled a little bit with the line-out, so we had to find different kind of ways to launch attacks."


On squad rotation

“It was important for us to give guys game time. Freddie has worked really hard on his game, especially it the last three or four weeks, so I wanted to reward that and his try was absolutely brilliant.

“It was great to see him getting a bit of space, but other guys as well like Angus Williams getting a start, and Harrison Courtney and Ben Muncaster brought energy off the bench.

“So, it was good to get a win with a score-line like that, but also to give these guys game-time as well."


On Glen Young

“I originally thought it was Gilco and thought there was no way he was scoring but then realised it was Glen and realised that he might make it."


On Stuart McInally

“He took a bang when he went for a jackal. He’s okay. We didn’t want to risk him. He’s got a big couple of months coming up.”
