WORCS 13 SAINTS 12 Gibson: We didn't deserve to win

While the Saints came within a whisker of pinching the points at Sixways on Friday evening, Jamie Gibson was brutally honest in his reflection of the game.

Stephen Myler's penalty looked to have given the visitors a smash and grab win, but with time for the restart, Worcester then reclaimed possession and Tom Heathcote snuck over a drop goal to provide the killer twist.

And while flanker Gibson was one of those to impress on his first outing for the club, he only had thoughts on the overall performance come the final whistle.

"If we'd held out at the end there we'd all be jumping for joy, but we probably didn't deserve to win," he told SaintsTV. "We let ourselves down throughout the game.

"We worked hard and you can't fault the boys' effort, but we needed to look after the ball better. We lacked a bit of discipline too and fair play to Worcester, they took advantage of that and put us under pressure.

"We've got a long weekend now though and plenty of time to reflect and go over the game. It's always the case that you're never as good or as bad as you think you were, so we'll get back out on the training pitch at the start of the week and work hard."
