DIRECTOR of rugby Alan Solomons looks set to stick with his misfiring Worcester Warriors players but is demanding a “laser-like focus” in Saturday’s tussle with London Irish at Sixways (3pm).

Pressure is mounting on Warriors’ first-team regulars after floundering in defeats to Dragons and Gloucester while the club's second string continue to shine.

Worcester Cavaliers made it three bonus-point wins on the trot with a 31-29 triumph at Gloucester United last Saturday.

But Solomons is likely to resist the temptation of making many changes insisting it is important to maintain an “element of consistency” with selection.

“You cannot take anything away from what the Cavaliers have done,” Solomons said.

“The lads have done superbly but you have got to see it in context.

“They are playing against a different level of opposition.

“Sometimes a side doesn’t play particularly well and I think as a unit we didn’t do ourselves justice on the weekend.

“But it’s not about individuals, it’s about the collective not doing well. We didn’t have our best outing.”

Supporters have been calling for the likes the versatile Scott van Breda, wing Tom Howe and scrum-half Michael Heaney to be given another shot in the Gallagher Premiership.

“There are players that are on the bench and players in the Cavaliers side that are providing heavy competition for places,” Solomons said.

“But what you have always got to remember is that there has to be an element of consistency in your selection.

“There comes an appropriate time when you can rotate and have a look at other players.

“At the moment the competition is fierce and there is not a mammoth difference between players in some positions.

“They have different strengths and weaknesses. Selection has been a massive headache this year.

“Of course Scotty comes into the frame.

“But we have got to look at the totality and make our decision for this weekend and then look at what we are going to do the following weekend.”

Warriors were level at 3-3 with Gloucester at Kingsholm last Friday before the hosts ran in five tries in the final 20 minutes to claim a crushing 36-3 victory.

“Everyone is disappointed, but you have got to go behind the cause of why you are suffering in terms of territory and possession,” Solomons said.

“It relates to turnovers, penalties and some decision making.

“We went through it with the individuals concerned (in the review) and the broad aspect of the errors with the team and they can see the consequences of them.

“The origins of the second and third tries stemmed from errors we made when we were on attack.

“We have got to be sharper when we are on attack.

“People are going to make mistakes, but you have got to have a laser-like focus and be able to build pressure.

“You can’t do that if you cough up the ball quickly.”

Warriors sit in eighth position, one place above Irish who have won two, drawn one and lost three of their opening six league matches.

“Having watched their games, they are a very physical outfit and (Stephen) Myler is an outstanding goal-kicker,” Solomons added.

“They have got good players and have obviously had a good season so far so it will be a tough game.”
