Worcester Warriors in the win column

The sense of relief at getting off the mark in the win column this season was huge for us at the Cardiff Blues last week.

We have struggled to find our form and rhythm in the Aviva Premiership so it was nice to see the things that we work on in training have some level of success on the pitch.

It was massively important for us to win because, as everyone in professional sport knows, winning can become a habit - in the same way that losing can.

Hopefully, it can be the start of a winning run that can grow our confidence for when we return to the Premiership.

And for the young lads that played, a win can act as a good confidence boost on a personal level as they build their skill-set towards ambitions of regular first team action.

Guys like centre Max Stelling, full-back Ben Howard and scrum-half George De Cothi have bright futures ahead of them here at Worcester and the LV= Cup is an ideal platform for them to show what they are made of.

Those guys will face a serious test on Friday night when we host my old club Leicester Tigers at Sixways.

I know from personal experience that Tigers sides are always tough to beat and hugely competitive in every facet of play.

You earn every yard you make against them and you have to be well organised in defence.

Our lads will be looking forward to taking on that challenge and playing at Sixways will make that even more exciting.

When the home crowd gets behind the Warriors, the atmosphere is superb.
