I HAVE to start by admitting I didn’t score a try against London Scottish in Friday’s Championship play-off semi-final at Sixways.

It’s always nice to cross the whitewash but, on this occasion, it was a case of mistaken identity. It was Sam Lewis who scored our second try in the second-half to finish with a hat-trick.

I didn’t hear my name announced over the public address system at the time. I only discovered the mistake after the match and when I read the reports on our 38-15 win.

Sam took full advantage of our forward dominance to get on the end of three driving mauls.

It was a really good weekend and I thought we played really well, especially considering the wet weather conditions.

We knew Scottish would be strong in the forwards, but our pack, with the likes of Gus Creevy and Nick Schonert, put their hands up.

We were immediately hampered when Ben Howard took a knock on the head early in the game. Full credit to Scottish who used the high ball tactic to test Ben, who was very groggy, and scored first from a scrum.

We knew we had gone into the game with a five-point advantage and we didn’t panic.

Cooper Vuna switched to full-back and covered the position very well. I think he played at full-back during his rugby league days, although I had only previously seen him on the wing or in the centre.

Although the scoreline was only 13-8 at half-time, we always felt in control, particularly in the last 20 minutes of the first-half.

We came out in the second-half with the aim of sticking to our game-plan and we made a tremendous start.

Cooper showed what a talent he is by catching a high ball and going straight on the counter-attack. Dean Hammond offered support and took Cooper's inside ball to race under the posts. Dean had been playing very well and it was a shame he tweaked his quad muscle about 20 metres from the try-line.

I switched off from rugby after the win. If you start thinking about things 10 days before the match then you run the risk of burning yourself out. I took a day trip to Cardiff yesterday to experience the capital of Wales.

Our full attention will now be turning to the play-off final against Bristol. We are confident Chris Pennell will be fit for the first leg at Bristol next Wednesday.

There was a possibility from the start that Worcester and Bristol would be the teams contesting the final and so it proved. We scored the most tries and conceded the fewest points in the league, while Bristol won the most matches and finished top of the table.

I believe the crowd will have a crucial role to play over the next few weeks and I hope Warriors fans get behind us to help us over the line.
