Worcester boss Alan Solomons says he was thrilled with his team’s “never say die attitude” as they won their first Premiership game. Solomons’ men took a commanding lead as a brace from Duncan Weir and a try apiece from Chris Pennell and Jack Singleton saw them race into a 37-11 lead.
However, tries in the second half from Jonny May, David Denton, Jordan Olofowela and George Ford saw the Tigers fight back to make the scores 37-37 and potentially deny Worcester their first Premiership win of the season.
But it was Worcester born Ted Hill crossed in the final passage of play to hand Worcester victory and lift them to ninth in the table, much to the delight of Solomons.
“It was absolutely unbelievable,” he said after the game.
“Before the game we spoke about playing to our potential, being the best we can be and that’s what that side did.
“We have got some talented players and we have not been finishing in the last three games but we finished this time.”
