 “There’s a great vibe in camp coupled with a constant ambition to get better week on week. It’s important to us that every squad member is progressing, feeling valued and, equally, adding value to the team whether in the match day 23 or not. 

“The focus this week has been on backing up what we did well in the win over Scarlets whilst honing in on subtle improvements we can make to our game. Yet again the players are driving standards in aiming to back up last week’s performance.”
