Wasps wrapped up the Aviva Premiership Rugby weekend with a 23-3 triumph over Gloucester Rugby on Sunday but Dai Young was not completely satisfied.
The Wasps director of rugby insists there are plenty of improvements to be made, despite a miserly defensive display that allowed the Cherry & Whites to score just three points, via a Greig Laidlaw penalty.
Christian Wade scored one of two Wasps tries – the other a penalty try – while Elliot Daly sent three long-range penalties between the uprights as they moved above Gloucester in the Aviva Premiership Rugby table.
“We made seven line-breaks but didn't take enough of them,” said Young. "We are creating opportunities but our conversion rate isn't good enough.
"We would have taken this result before the game. We had the game won after 60 minutes but we didn't kick on.
"From the side we looked to have switched off in the last 20 minutes as we lacked accuracy and our discipline faded."
Six different try-scorers came to the party, including Rhys Priestland on his first Aviva Premiership Rugby start, in a clinical display.
Saracens, who beat Bath in season’s Twickenham final, continued their winning start to the season with a 12-6 win at Northampton Saints.
Owen Farrell kicked four penalties for the visitors but despite seeing the Saints slip down to tenth, director of rugby Jim Mallinder is not overly concerned.
"You have got to be really accurate when you play Saracens and you have to take your opportunities,” he said. “They play in a certain way, but it is so difficult to beat, as we and other teams have found out."
"We are not a long way off. I know we have had a disappointing start, but we are not going to be pressing the panic button. We know what we need to do, and we can get better.”
Worcester Warriors continued their promising start to the campaign with an entertaining 28-20 win at home to Newcastle Falcons.
Centre Alex Grove crossed over twice as Dean Ryan’s side collected maximum points at Sixways to move into the top half of the table.
Gareth Steenson scored all 19 points for Exeter Chiefs as they beat Leicester Tigers 19-6 at Sandy Park to stay two points behind leaders Saracens.
And Sale Sharks were narrowly beaten by Harlequins on Friday night, going down 16-14 at the Stoop despite outscoring their hosts by two tries to one.
"We've got to be pleased with our performance but we just didn't get the end result,” said Sale director of rugby Steve Diamond.
"The frustration is because by half-time we had all the ball. But fair play to Quins – they're a good side, and to get a bonus point from here, some people would be grateful for and I've got to be."
