Gloucester Improvement Will Come - Cox 50 views 0 Comments 0 Images
08 January 2014 by Englandfan See all
Gloucester back-rower Matt Cox has called on his teammates to up their game following their Aviva Premiership loss to Saracens at the weekend and he has promised their fans that, with some minor changes, an improvement will come.

Saturday’s 29-8 home defeat was Gloucester’s eighth league loss of the season and, despite Christmas victories over London Irish and Worcester Warriors, saw them remain rooted to ninth place in the table.

Cox, whose late try was one of the few bright moments for the Kingsholm faithful, is keen that his side build on the momentum that they created during the festive period and is sure that with some minor changes they can return to winning ways.

“It’s just a case of fine tuning things. It’s not like the boys aren’t good enough – we have a good team and a good squad. It’s just little things,” the 25 year old said.

Gloucester, who finished fifth in the league last season, last qualified for the end of season play-offs in 2010-11, the same season that they lifted the Anglo-Welsh Cup, and their fans in the bet365 forums are beginning to grow restless at the lack of success.

Cox is well aware that performances this season haven’t been up to scratch and he has promised the Cherry and Whites’ supporters that the team will come good.

“It’s going to come and the boys want it. Every time we come out of the tunnel we want to win,” the former Worcester Warriors man said. “The crowd is tremendous and it’s just a shame we keep coming away with results like that. We have to thank them for that but we will get it right – it will come,” he added, according to the bet365 rugby page.

With their two victories over Christmas, Gloucester may have thought that they had turned a corner, but Saturday’s defeat will certainly have knocked their confidence.

The Aviva Premiership now takes a break until 7th February meaning that Cox and his team will have plenty of time to work on their patterns and ‘fine tune’ their game before making a final push towards securing a play-off place.
