NEW Warriors signing Chris Ashton believes he can be the key to resolving Worcester's try-conversion woes.

Warriors are one of the best sides in the Gallagher Premiership for creating chances in the opposition 22 but are at the bottom of the pile when it comes to finishing them off with points.

Ashton is third on the list of all-time Premiership try scorers with 88, four behind leader the now retired Tom Varndell, so is no stranger to the try-line.

The ex-England winger has been impressed with his new club's attitude since arriving at Sixways but admits a need for a change of mindset.

"The main thing in this league is being consistent," he said.

"You need to be able to perform at a level that is going to get you winning badly

"Teams higher up the table can win games like that, it's having that confidence to win even when you're playing badly.

"When you're at the bottom end of the table it's difficult to have that mindset so it's about trying to change that mindset.

"When you start picking up a few of those, it's amazing how things can change because their attack is good enough, they create a lot of chances but don't seem to finish them off.

"Hopefully I can come in and contribute to sorting that issue out."

As well as scoring tries, Ashton has also been brought in with a nod to developing the younger members of the squad.

But he admits that will take time and for now, is focussed on settling himself in.

"There's a lot of info to take in and get used to," he admitted.

"It would be too soon to start analysing things this quickly

"But it will be good to be here after the first game."

Warriors are back in action after two weeks off due to the European competitions being suspended and despite only being in the squad for a couple of days, Ashton feels the break has benefitted the players.

"This weekend acts as a starting point for everyone," he added.

"The new coaches getting bedded in and obviously myself but just from speaking to the lads there's been a shift in mindset recently and from what I've been told these two weeks have been beneficial

"I will take my time and then definitely over the next few weeks see where I can help people out."
