Myler: "We've got to be a lot better"

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

The Saints head to Oxford's Kassam Stadium for the first time in a decade to face the Exiles this weekend. Both teams need the points to maintain their respective ambitions, and the fly half says that there is plenty of desire in the travellers' camp to get back to the form which won Saints four consecutive matches between Rounds 15 and 18.

"The Leicester game brought us back to earth with a bump, but we've got to put that past us and look positively forward to this game on Sunday," Myler told the assembled media this week. "After a result like that you want to get back out there and put things right. But unlike in previous years we've had a bit of a break, and hopefully that will stand us in good stead for this Sunday and the other big games we've got coming up.

"Welsh aren't where they want to be, but that doesn't mean that they're going to be a pushover. They've taken some good teams close this year, especially at home, and we've got to be a lot better than we were last time out if we're going to get the win.

"We've got three games coming up now where we can hopefully secure a play-off spot, which is where we want to be. It's in our own hands, which is a good thing, and we're looking to up our game and come away with the vital points."

Tickets are still available for Sunday's non-televised game, and will be available on the day. London Welsh are also putting on a free park and ride scheme for the game; full details are available on the Saints and London Welsh websites.
