LOCK Anton Bresler reckons he is starting to find his “mojo” in a Worcester Warriors shirt as he approaches his one-year anniversary at Sixways.

The Namibian-born second row said he struggled to find his feet following his arrival from Edinburgh in December 2017 but was now “slowly” getting into his groove.

Bresler was Alan Solomons’ first signing as director of rugby and went on to make seven outings in the second half of the 2017-18 campaign with five coming in the Premiership.

But the 29-year-old, who made his debut against Exeter Chiefs in the Anglo-Welsh Cup in late January, said he found it “difficult” to get going.

“I only started one game in the cup and one in the Prem so I came off the bench most of the time,” Bresler said.

“I had a decent impact but still couldn’t find my feet completely.

“I probably didn’t make as much of an impression as I would have liked.

“But I am the type of player who needs a few games.

“It is like a good cricket bat. It takes a few shots before it is completely in.

“I feel like I need a few shots, a few games and a few bangs just to get into it.”

This season has seen Bresler play in six of Warriors’ first 10 games, starting in the Premiership Cup victories over Sale Sharks and Leicester Tigers.

“I am hoping to slowly find my mojo and just carry on from there,” Bresler said.

“I would like to think I am finding it.

“You can critique yourself on every game and think I could have done this better or that better.

“But from a physical point of view I do feel like I am banged in nicely so I am slowly getting there and it is still fairly early days in the season.

“You always want to improve and find something to make yourself better. You never want to become stagnant.”

One area Bresler said he was determined to improve on this season was his ball-carrying as he looks to get Warriors on the front foot.

“I find that around a certain time in the game I really start blowing and the legs and lungs start going,” Bresler said.

“I just want to find a way where I can see past that and just march on.”

The 6ft 6in forward said the competition for places in the second row was also a source of motivation to up his game.

“Darren (Barry) and Pierce (Phillips) have been playing really well,” Bresler added.

“Even Kitchy (Andrew Kitchener) has done a phenomenal job when he has come off the bench so I think all the locks have been performing really well.

“It is good to know that whoever steps up is going to do a job and it creates a competitive vibe within the group which helps you push to become better.”
