A DELIGHTED boss Gary Gold insisted his Worcester Warriors players must remain humble if they are to build on back-to-back wins.

Two tries from Josh Adams helped the Warriors beat Leicester Tigers 31-27 at Welford Road - their first away win in the league in 20 months.

And while it came just seven days after the Sixways defeat of Northampton Saints, the director of rugby had a word of caution.

“A week is an eternity in rugby,” he said. “If we don’t stay humble and work really hard then we are going to get beaten by Sale and we don’t want that. We want to keep improving.

“It’s only two games and we lost the first seven so we just need to keep working.”

Adams may grab the headlines for his brace of tries including a dazzling solo effort.

But Gold admitted that the Leicester win was built on a solid defensive display and all-round performance.

“I’m obviously delighted for the group of players and the club,” he added. “ We have been working on the defence.

“Concerned is an understatement after we leaked 70-odd tries last year.

“It was a close battle out there and fair dues to them as they fought to the bitter end. It is a very hostile place to come and play as teams have found out over the years.

“I’m realistic enough to understand that they have a lot of guys missing at the moment and they are real quality players who are missing. We just want to keep improving week to week.

“There were areas of our game today that were concerning – our performance in the last couple of minutes of the first half let them back into the game.

“If we had lost then we would have been discussing how we had let go a 12-point lead.

“There is lots to work on and a long way to go but hopefully we are making good strides.

“It was the ultimate team game but there were some guys who were outstanding.

“The spine of team where Chris Pennell was outstanding, Ryan Mills was brilliant, Francois Hougaard was always asking questions. Will Spencer and Sam Lewis and the front row scrummed brilliantly against a very good Leicester team.

“I thought the reserves came on and made a difference.”
