Hughes hails love and togetherness of Bears

Nathan Hughes hailed the love and togetherness of his Bears side after they stormed out of the blocks to blow Gloucester away with a scintillating first-half display.

Inspired by Semi Radradra, the Bears raced to the bonus point inside 30 minutes before adding a fifth try midway through the second half – but Hughes insists they must take their game to another level ahead of facing Exeter Chiefs on Tuesday night.

Plenty to work on

“We’re pleased to get the five points and come here and do the job, but there’s a lot to work on - we let some easy tries in, but now it’s a quick turnaround to Tuesday, back at home and we’ll look at our work-ons.

“We had a good start, but we just took our foot off the pedal. We’ll go back and look at that, and come Tuesday, we’ll be sweet.

“We talk about love every day and you see the love the boys have for each other – not only that we’re playing for ourselves, but for the whole squad, our families and all of our fans at home.”
