'A missed opportunity for us' - Lam

Pat Lam was left to rue a ‘missed opportunity’ for his side, as they were edged out by Harlequins at The Stoop on Saturday.

Jake Heenan’s 71st-minute try earned Bristol a losing bonus-point from a rain drenched clash in West London, but the Director of Rugby, who praised his side’s fightback, was left frustrated by indiscipline.

“I’m really pleased with the effort and fight – we did a lot right – but ultimately, in games like this, we gave them too much and our discipline has let us down,” he said.

“We had a chance to win it at the end and credit goes to Quins for keeping us out, but this week we’ll work on those little things to make sure we’re ready for Sale.

“It’s frustrating. We’re 9-3 up and in control and then out of nothing, we’re going in level. The first thing I’ll be doing on the bus home is looking at our penalty count and that’ll be a focus, for sure.

“I feel it’s a bit of a missed opportunity for us. We’ve done so much good work, with our kicking and managing of territory right up there but, again, we’ve been sloppy.”
