I actually thought we were a bit off where we were last week and the Saints game. Our defence is very good when it has time to set, but when Gloucester got quick ball in the middle third of the pitch they made some very easy metres. I also thought we lacked a bit of penetration in the first half. We battered away at their line for long periods, without too much to show for it. However, these are pretty minor quibbles. Coleman was imperious again and, as pointed out, the centres were very good and are showing some really nice touches in attack as well as being solid at the back. Great to see Rona win that final turnover at the end to win the game too. Our home form had clearly been a bit of a monkey on our back so it was great to grind the result out.
And so, onto Wasps. The last three wins have been against good sides, but sides who are probably in a bit of a dip form wise. Wasps are almost the opposite - a pretty average team, but one who have started to find some form. However, it really should be a winnable game at the Madejski. I would be looking at some changes too, and if rumours are to be believed, SOB could be in line for his debut.
