Blues fans

Following a bonus point win up in Edinburgh last Friday Paul Tito is now looking ahead to the first home match of the Rabo Direct Pro 12.

Speaking at the Pavillion Training Centre, Tito said, “It was a good start for us.”

“It wasn’t a complete performance by any means but we are heading in the right direction. When you look back at the game, I thought Andries Pretorius and Sam Hobbs were outstanding, but everyone else played really well which was pleasing and that’s what we are going to need this year – everyone playing well in every game.”

“I think after last year where we battled to score four tries, we only came away with two bonus point wins all season, to go away in the first Rabo Direct game and get a bonus point win was pleasing. I think the boys have done their reviews and there are still areas where we can improve, I think every team will be saying that after the weekend.”

“It’s a good bench mark and we want to go up from here and look forward to Treviso this weekend. Something that we’ve talked about this season is getting the fans down and showing the type of rugby, and style of rugby that we want to play, to get them back at the stadium because we know we let them down last year. The performance at Edinburgh was a benchmark and hopefully people can see we’re working hard and ready to play some exciting rugby.”
