LAST weekend was a difficult battle for us but to have come out with another bonus-point win is great — especially after the position we were in at the break.

It was a game that really tested us in terms of where we are as a team as we had to adapt to conditions in what was a difficult environment.

The slope at Bedford and playing into the wind made it a real test and we found it hard going in the first-half.

We struggled to keep hold of the ball and kept knocking on and errors at the scrum and breakdown cost us.

All credit to Bedford as they punished us for our mistakes and their two tries were very opportunistic.

I think a lot of people would have been writing us off at 17-0 down at the break but we had the conditions with us in the second-half and corrected a few things.

But this is what director of rugby Dean Ryan and the coaching staff have been emphasising. They are looking to us players to find answers to different situations.

We had a mountain to climb in that second-half and we came out of the blocks and dominated that second period to turn the game on its head.

With just 15 minutes left on the clock and still trailing, we were reduced to 14 men but every player adapted to their roles and worked for one another.

Our heads never dropped and three tries in the last eight minutes was a just reward for the work and effort of the boys.

Sam Smith, Ryan Mills, Sam Betty andTom Biggs scored the tries with Andy Symons kicking his goals well again.

For us it’s not just about getting the result. It’s about being able to respond and change our ways to win games and that was exactly what we did.

With the run-in now to the Championship play-offs, it’s vital that we keep getting results but also that we’re performing and improving from week to week as we need to be in the best possible space come May.

The win over Bedford wasn’t our most convincing, but it shows our ability to understand situations and how to win games.

The club record in winning 22 in a row is obviously fantastic and demonstrates how far we’ve come this season, but we must keep the momentum going as the business end of the season approaches.

We’ve got a short break now which gives the guys an opportunity to rest up but we’ll be ready and raring to go when Plymouth Albion come to Sixways on Saturday, March 7.

The following week we’ve got a huge British and Irish Cup semi-final at home to Leinster ‘A’ which everyone is looking forward to.
