‘Early try set the tone’ - Lam

Pat Lam praised his side for their swift start in Sunday’s Gallagher Premiership victory over Harlequins at Ashton Gate, as Luke Morahan’s try after just 47 second set the tone for a record fifth straight top-flight win.

Morahan added a second midway through the half, before Chris Vui scored a third before the interval.

And although Lam was frustrated by the second half, the Director of Rugby was pleased to extend the winning run.

“It’s a good win for the boys,” he said. “I understand it’s our fifth win in a row which is really good for the fans, but I was frustrated in that second half.

“I think both teams could be because there was a real opportunity to have a great game of rugby and unfortunately, I don’t think we were really allowed to do that.

“It made it very difficult in that second half. We got the win, but it was a missed opportunity to get that bonus point.

“The defeat to Leicester in January was a big turning point for us. We have put a lot of work in since then and taken on a lot of learnings, fair play to the whole squad, they’ve come back and we’ve worked really hard and we’re building.

“There was a call about being focused and let’s start well and we certainly did that. The boys can be proud as it was a great try to start the game and then we were in control for most of it.”
