Neil Best was keen to shift focus towards Judgement Day on April 11 after a chastening defeat to Worcester Warriors at Sixways this afternoon.
The ex-Ireland international says the squad have to move on quickly from today’s 56-15 defeat and use it as motivation to secure victory over Nottingham Rugby on Saturday, April 11 which would seal an historic maiden appearance in the end of season play-offs.
Five second half tries allowed Worcester to cruise home at Sixways but Best feels the Scots first half display was more what they are about when they led on two occasions thanks to tries from Mark Bright and Peter Lydon.
“We showed in the first half today that we can compete against the very best teams,” Best said.
“We played really well in that first half and were all pleased at half time but the second half was disappointing.
“We let them score early which cost us and we’ll have to work on a few things.”
He continued: “But let’s not worry too much. It’s important we take the positives and fix things that didn’t go well so that we can put in a massive 80 minute performance against Nottingham.
“Starting now, we’ve got two weeks to prepare for that huge game and we’re all looking forward to going into the match fresh and focused in front of our home support.
“To reach the play-offs would be a fantastic achievement for this club and we are all massively determined to pull out the win over Nottingham and prove we deserve our place in the semi-finals.”
London Scottish take on Nottingham Rugby in their final home game of the regular season on Saturday, April 11, 3pm kick-off.
Victory over Nottingham will guarantee the Club a place in the Greene King IPA Championship play-offs for the very first time!
