Lam rues early errors but praises fightback at Wasps

Pat Lam was left to rue his side’s first half error count at the Ricoh Arena, but was pleased with the spirit shown in fighting back to earn a bonus point at Wasps on Sunday.

The Bears were slow out of the blocks as Wasps stormed to their try bonus point inside 20 minutes, but Max Malins led the resurgence as his double and further tries from Piers O’Conor, Peter McCabe and a penalty try earned a consolation point.  

'We left tries out there'

“We were still looking for the win at half time,” said Lam.

“We blew four or five tries, one pass here or there and we could have scored more tries.

“We didn’t get off to a great start obviously at the very beginning, but I have a lot of pride in the boys.

“It is not about the situation you are in; it is about how you deal with it.

'Reflection of our errors'

“We spoke at half time and said the minimum is the bonus point, but we are still going for the win.

“Unfortunately, we conceded just before half time [which made life more difficult].

“I think what the boys realise is that this stage they are at, and a lot of them have got really good careers ahead of them, they know the good stuff we did was when everyone did their bits and pieces.

“Unfortunately, that scoreboard is more a reflection of our errors than the quality of Wasps because we allowed them to play.”
