First game: Ryan Lamb

Worcester Warriors new signing Ryan Lamb says his side must keep up the momentum generated by their 22-21 loss to Harlequins.

The Warriors led 13-0 at half-time, but were edged out by a stirring second half fightback from the hosts at The Stoop.

"It was a great display and we have to keep this momentum going into the next few weeks," said Lamb.

"The lads did themselves justice in the first-half with a fantastic performance from everyone across the park. In the second-half we just couldn't get much of a foothold in the game.

"But we dug deep to get a bonus point and it was anyone's game in those final five minutes but unfortunately we couldn't quite get that score."

The loss marked the fly-half's first start for his new club, and while Lamb admitted he felt a tad off the pace, he was delighted to return to Premiership rugby.

"I felt a bit rusty but it was great to be out there again and to try and gel with my new teammates," added Lamb.

"Hopefully now I can get some more minutes under my belt and we can put in another good performance next time out.

"I think it's about building confidence. I wasn't too sure what to expect when I came here but the lads are very positive and it is a very upbeat group.

"We can take a lot of positives from the Quins game and now the lads have a week off so we will replenish and come back fighting against Wasps."
