Jones: We still need to improve

Bucks Free Press: Stephen Jones Stephen Jones

WASPS attack coach Stephen Jones believes last weekend’s seven-try win in Grenoble is evidence that the pieces are slowly coming together.

They ran their hosts ragged, suggesting that the black and golds can still be a threat despite widespread injuries.

Jones said: “It was a wonderful performance from the team. We have been working really hard and to beat Grenoble at home in the manner in which we did so was pretty special.

“The ball in play time was very high and we managed to work them hard physically. We were playing against a good outfit so we are proud of that.

“I thought our continuity and the fact that we recycled the ball at tempo and how we kept the ball through the phases, was very good. We asked a lot of questions of them.”

However, while Wasps are sitting pretty in Europe, Jones insists they know how much work they still have to do.

He said: “We are very realistic. We have a lot of improvement to make in a lot of areas and playing [Grenoble] this weekend, we know we have to back it up again with another win.

“If you look at what we are facing on the horizon we have Northampton, Newcastle and Exeter so this is a massive block of games for us.

“There is so much to play for in Europe and in the league so our feet are definitely on the ground.”
