Singleton wants his side to cut out the mistakes

Aaron Wise 6th Dec, 2017

HOOKER Jack Singleton believes Warriors must stamp out the poor discipline in their performances if they are to continue their surge up the Aviva Premiership table.

The 21-year-old insists Worcester are ‘dangerous’ when the defence and attack start to click, but has urged his side to be more disciplined by reducing the sloppy mistakes that have allowed opposing teams to attack them in their 22.

“Our discipline has been pretty poor (this season). We keep giving away penalties in that middle third of the pitch,” said Singleton.

“We’re giving sides opportunities to kick to the corner. Its something we’ve got to be neater about. We don’t want to give a team the opportunity to drive at us in our 22.

“I think our defence has always been pretty good, it was our attacking that let us down a bit at the start of the season, but since that Quins game (where we scored six tries) we got our confidence back.

“You could see that in the Leicester game too with some of the offloads. It’s been enjoyable.

“You look all across our backline, it’s unbelievable having those guys in the team. They can create something out of nothing. Confidence is high and with some of the guys back fit we’re a dangerous team.

“But there’s always areas to work on. Discipline is something you never want to slip up on in a game. We’ve got to keep working on our defence as we’re still conceding tries.”
