WORCESTER Warriors Women's Alex Matthews is aiming high as Worcester choose to look forward rather than back.

The England grand slam winner, who played in the win against Italy last weekend in the Six Nations finale, admitted coming to Worcester was the right move following her arrival at the start of the season.

"It's a really nice club to be a part of, I made the right decision," she said.

"I am really impressed, I think they have one of the best set-ups in the league, I was quite amazed with it when I first arrived.

"I know the girls are lacking confidence after last season but to go and put up a good fight against Saracens in the opening game gave them some confidence and then the big win over Darlington was great.

"To have lost against Wasps, everyone was a bit gutted, we lacked a bit of energy on the day and we were all pretty disappointed with it but that's good, we have higher expectations now."

The Warriors squad is showing signs of great potential and Matthews believes the talent is there to achieve far more than they have done in previous years.

"We have quite a young squad," she added.

"There are a lot of younger girls in the team that are showing a lot of promise so we have to work around them.

"But there's a good bond developing so we have to keep going with that and go from there.

"The aim is to come in the top four and although it wasn't great last season but we have the potential.

"When I got here some girls were aiming to just not lose, which I wanted to chance straight away, we have the quality and top four would be amazing and that is what our aim is."

The Women's side tackle Exeter Chiefs this Saturday away from home, looking to bounce back from the 22-7 defeat to Wasps at Sixways last time out.
