'Job done but we need to be better' - Lam

Pat Lam declared it ‘job done’ after the Bears saw off Leicester Tigers to stay in the play off hunt, but the Director of Rugby insisted his side would need to improve ahead of Sunday’s showdown against London Irish.

Tries from Ioan Lloyd, Nathan Hughes, Bryan Byrne, Dan Thomas, Harry Thacker and a penalty try earned a bonus-point victory at a rain-soaked Ashton Gate.

But Lam admitted to not being overly satisfied with his side’s display.

"It's job done in the sense of the five points,” he said. “A good outcome and there were some good performances here and there.

"But ultimately, I'm not completely satisfied in terms of we could've been a lot better. We talked about being ruthless in this game, at times we were, but a lot of times we weren't.

"We had balls turned over and I think nine balls lost in contact and five dropped passes. You can't control the tempo of the game when it's stop-start and it's us making those errors.

"There's some room for improvement to take into Sunday. It's about controlling our own performance then.

"We'll take care of ourselves and then it'll just be a case of wait and see if it's good enough to reach the top four."
