London Welsh director of rugby Lyn Jones was unahppy with his side’s first half performance at Gloucester.

Gloucester led 34-6 at the interval before their play became a touch careless and London Welsh were able to cut into their advantage.

London Welsh coach Lyn Jones said: “I was delighted with our second-half performance but I was disappointed with certain aspects of our game. Our set-piece and lineout weren’t accurate enough but at 10-6 at the end of the first quarter I thought we were right in it.

“However we then went through a bad series and the Gloucester side kicked on as they are very confident at the moment but we did well to come back and show some fight.”

Considering the merits of the competition itself, Jones added: “It’s beneficial to us as we get more at ease with the standard that we are required to play, because a lot of our players have just played in the Championship.”
