The atmosphere in our new home was enormous and really transferred itself on to the field. For that, we would like to thank our amazing fans. Your chants, your cheers, your support was unbelievable and really spurred us on.
After a tough and highly intense week of training with Mitch and the rest of the coaching staff, we dissected specific areas of our game, including working together as one.
I think this showed on the pitch last Saturday, as we managed to keep Toulon contained for a large amount of the match and looked to have adapted a lot better as a team.
Although we didn't come away from the game with a victory, it was a strong and improved performance from us, one that we can carry through with us, to our following matches.
Leading in to this weekend, we still have a lot work on. We must continue to grow and follow this week's performance with a stronger one, both in our return fixture against Toulon and our next Aviva Premiership game, which is away at London Wasps.
We need another solid performance this weekend, to keep the team's confidence high. This confidence will then no doubt carry through to our upcoming Premiership games. Games we cannot afford to back down from.
Our next Aviva Premiership home game will be against Worcester Warriors on Friday 28th December. Click here to book your tickets now or call 08444 994 994 (Monday - Friday, 9am - 5pm).
