'We showed spirit and togetherness' - Lloyd

Ioan Lloyd believes the Saturday's dogged defensive effort against Worcester Warriors showed 'spirit and togetherness', as the Bears got off the mark in the Gallagher Premiership with a bonus-point win at Ashton Gate.

Lloyd took centre stage on his return from international duty, kicking eight points and lighting up a dark November afternoon in BS3 with a stunning display of footwork, defence and game management from full back. 

'Squad effort'

And the 19-year-old paid tribute to a 'squad effort' against a gritty Warriors side.

"It was a tough one, we knew Worcester were going to be physical and that they are a really good side, so we knew it would need an 80-minute performance, so for us, the emphasis was on knowing that things would go wrong, but sticking to it and getting the win.

"Pat puts a big emphasis on sticking to the system and we've got a great system that everyone knows really well, so whenever things are going well, we know how to solve it.

"As we saw last year, it's a long season and anything can happen, no side is ever really out of it, so any bonus point win is great. We've got a group here who really want to play for each other, and that performance really showed it."
