'Golden' five points - Lam

Pat Lam described the five points gained at Sixways as ‘golden’ after the Bears, inspired by Siva Naulago’s hat-trick, left it late to snatch a bonus-point victory over Worcester.


Naulago’s treble and Andy Uren’s score on the stroke of half time earned the maximum allocation for Lam’s side – and the Director of Rugby praised his side ‘not panicking’ when trailing in the closing stages.

'A good day'

“It was a really good day. I am really pleased considering the people that are missing," said Lam.

“There are guys getting their opportunities out there and they are doing their jobs, so any points for me during this time are golden.

“We managed to get five, but it feels like 10 points to me because the guys had to dig deep to get the win.

"We had to be patient and wait for our opportunity, when it came, we took it, and we closed the game out brilliantly at the end.

"The late try was testimony to what we always say, don’t panic, it is an 80-minute game and keep working and the system is the solution.

Siva's X-factor

"We could have been more points up at half-time and, having missed some opportunities, we were very sloppy in the second half.

"These boys were desperate for a win, but we had to wait for our chance and the boys closed it out well after that bit of magic from Siva.

"He's got some X-factor qualities. Serious pace. The sort of finishes that not many guys could do, but all our back three did a great job."
