Yorkshire Carnegie hooker, Phil Nilsen, said he was disappointed to suffer a 7-10 loss against London Welsh but feels the team are in control to turn things around.

Speaking after the game, that saw Nilsen who made an impressive performance after coming on from the bench said: “It wasn't the most exciting game and the conditions played a part in that. It was difficult to play a lot of running rugby with the ball being wet and I think the game had a few errors. The conditions would see it be a big set piece game which made the referee get involved so it was a bit stop/start. We dug in and gave it a bash at the end but unfortunately we weren't good enough.

“When you are sat on a bench you always watch the game and see where you can make an impact when you get on and it's just about waiting for that opportunity. Everyone tries to make an impact, it's not a 15 man game anymore and it's down to the whole squad.

“It's disappointing to lose, particularly after the defeat at Bedford, but looking at positive it's all in our control we feel. We just need to get a few basics right and we will be back flying again.”
