Yorkshire Carnegie coach Tommy McGee previews Saturday’s game in the Greene King IPA Championship against London Scottish, kick off 3pm.

Carnegie will be aiming to start 2015 in winning form as they take on fourth placed London Scottish at the Athletic Ground.

Speaking ahead of the game McGee said: “I think the Worcester game showed that we can compete and we learned a lot from that game.  Generically this week we will look at managing the field a bit better and understanding that when you are playing good sides they can put the squeeze on you for certain amount of periods and what you have got to do in your game is be adaptable. 

“We are a side that loves to play and have a lot of energy and enthusiasm for playing with the ball and we are evolving our game.  We created a lot against Worcester, but I still think we have got a lot to learn about cycles in games and how they go and how you get them back. 

“I think it is a big weekend for us in our evolution and maturing as a whole group.  The weather could play a big part in the game against London Scottish, I don’t think it will be a big scoreline.  We have looked at the two league games in January and we know this a massive period for us, so picking up something this weekend, preferably a win, is really important because going away to Bristol next week is very difficult too so we do need the points .”
