WORCESTER Warriors’ issues at the line-out are "not a huge concern”, insists head coach Carl Hogg.

The Sixways side have struggled in that department at times this season.

And they saw four of their 14 line-outs go astray in their 35-14 win over Oyonnax in the European Challenge Cup at Sixways.

But Hogg put their failings on Saturday down to the amount of changes made to the team as number eight David Denton was the only player to keep his place in the starting line-up.

“It is not a huge concern,” Hogg said.

“We have got a group that have not been in rhythm of playing week-in week-out and the line-out is about the co-ordination across eight people.

“But that’s something we will look at and we will look to address and get better and better at.”

Hogg also admitted Warriors’ lack of accuracy gave Oyonnax a platform to build as an overthrow at the line-out from Joe Taufete’e led his opposite number Hika Elliot to cross the whitewash on four minutes.

But the hosts battled back thanks to a double from Tom Howe and late scores from Luke Baldwin and Denton.

“We always said the contest was about getting tempo in our game and trying to play at a pace which they could not live with,” Hogg said.

“Early on in the game that pace and tempo was disrupted with some of our lack of accuracy.

“But I thought in the second half we much better and we got to grips with the game.

“Once we got our timings as a side we looked a real threat.”

Warriors will look to tidy up their set-piece ahead of their trip to Oyonnax on Friday (GMT 7pm).
