Arr: A win's a win no matter how gritty

Aaron Wise 5th Oct, 2016 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

SCRUM-HALF Jonny Arr praised his team for claiming the win against Newcastle in a game that ‘didn’t click’ for Warriors.

The Worcester-born player wasn’t impressed with the gritty performance his team put in against Falcons on Saturday, but urged ‘it’s not the end of the world’ if the club can claim victories when not at their best.

The club centurion also insisted despite enjoying the win, all eyes are already focused on this Saturday’s game at Leicester Tigers.

“It’s nice to get our first win on the board, but also to maintain our unbeaten record at Sixways. We weren’t at our best against Newcastle, but we still did enough to get the win which is the most important thing,” said Arr.

“Things just didn’t click for us, but that will happen at times throughout the season. If you’re not at your best but claim four points it’s not the end of the world.

“It’s lifted frustration around the camp after coming so close on a few occasions already this season. Ultimately, we want to make Sixways a tough place to come this year and so far we’ve achieved that.

“Credit has to go to the younger lads like Perry Humphreys, Jamie Shillcock and Josh Adams, who I thought were outstanding again. They’re showing no pre-match nerves and are just oozing confidence.

“The pressure has eased a little bit now, but we have to look forward to the Leicester match. It doesn’t get much harder than a trip to Welford Road.”
