We will learn from our mistakes - Bosch
Marcelo Bosch believes Saracens need to learn from the mistakes they made in the defeat to Bristol Bears and the Heineken Champions Cup semi-final against Munster is the perfect opportunity to do so.
Sarries went down 23-21 at Ashton Gate with Bears fly-half Ian Madigan kicking a last-minute penalty to secure victory for Pat Lam’s side.
There were positives for the Men in Black as Tom Whiteley dotted down on his first Premiership start and prop Ralph Adams-Hale barged over to open his senior try account to join Bosch on the scoresheet, and the Argentinian spoke honestly about his team’s performance in the West.
“It’s hard to win a game like this when you make a lot of mistakes,” he said.
“We showed resilience in the first half with how we defended our line. In the second half we had some chances that were concrete but sadly we couldn’t win the game.
“Credit to them for the penalty at the end which Madigan made so congratulations to him.
“We know how tough this competition is and if you don’t show up every week and play your best then these things happen against a team that is fighting for survival.
“We have to learn why we weren’t the team we normally are. I’m sure we will learn from our mistakes and we’ll be back next week where hopefully we’ll get a result in the semi-final.”
