Lam rues error count at the Ricoh

Pat Lam admitted his side ‘hadn’t fired a shot’ after the Bears slipped to defeat in Saturday’s Gallagher Premiership play-off semi-final against Wasps.

The Director of Rugby was left to rue the error count at the Ricoh Arena, but paid tribute to Wasps, who will face Exeter Chiefs in the final at Twickenham later this month.

"We turned the ball over 23 times and we gave away eight penalties on attack, which meant we couldn't get a foothold in the game - but you have got to give a lot of credit to Wasps,” he said.

"At half-time we said there was no rocket science involved. We didn't fire a shot because we made too many errors.

"When I was coaching at Connacht and looking at the Premiership, there was no mention of Bristol, and probably at the start of the season probably nobody predicted that Bristol would be in play-off rugby.

"To grow and get to the sort of team we want to be, we've got to be playing in this sort of rugby."
