Young: We need to back up Harlequins victory
DAI Young has told his players to beat Gloucester or undo all their good work against Harlequins.
He said: “After that excellent win last week, we need to back it up or going to The Stoop and winning was in vain.”
Gloucester won’t be intimidated though after winning 27-11 at Northampton in their last match.
Young said: “There is a lot of pace and a lot of threat in the two back threes.
“Another intriguing battle will be the two back rows. They’ve got a massive back row with some real potent ball carriers and we have to stop them.
“Another battle will be the front row. Stats-wise, Gloucester have the best scrum both on their own ball and the opposition ball.
“That’s an area where we have to match them and make sure we get the platform to play off and try to disrupt their platform.”
Meanwhile, Tom Varndell's try against Quins was his 71st, but he remains five away from the all-time Premiership record after Mark Cueto went above Steve Hanley with his 76th try last weekend.
Varndell is third on the list.
