Connolly pleased with victory

"It was a great win for the club," he said in the post match press conference. "I think that it has lifted us into fourth and in touch with Sale and we needed the win after a couple of close defeats to Wasps. These matches are usually tight and I think that we kept our nerve well. We now have eight matches to go and five are at home."

The foundations for the victory were laid due to an epic forward display and Connolly said that he was really pleased with the way his forwards took the game to Wasps. "I think that we had a good points decision in the scrums and edged the lineouts. Our defence was immense and I think that we handled them very well indeed."

A game that brought no tries was not something that worried Connolly. He said that the game was all about the victory and was pleased to take the four points. "You play to win," he explained. "I think that we played some good rugby at times and had a couple of decent breaks."
