Green: We have to be better

Calum Green and his fellow Leicester Tigers are onto the next job, again.

The Leicester lock, who has appeared in all but one of the club’s eight straight wins so far this season, is well-and-truly focused on what’s to come and not what has already been.

"The environment we have is that we want to be better, we want to improve"

Tigers secured a four-try bonus-point in the final play of the game against long-time rivals Bath Rugby in Round 8, which had the almost 19,000 fans at Mattioli Woods Welford Road matching the pyrotechnics display for noise.

However, when asked about the performance and all of those in this season’s league campaign to date, Green was much, much less noisy.

“We’re a bit disappointed with some areas of the performance,” admits Green.

“In particular, our discipline wasn’t good enough tonight. We have to be better, it has to improve.”

Thankfully, according to Green, improvement is already on the schedule at Oval Park.

“The environment we have is that we want to be better, we want to improve,” says the 31-year-old.

“We enjoy working hard and once we have reviewed a game and looked at what needs improving, we get to work on being better.

“That’s what we do, that’s what we are about.”

As for Leicester’s ladder position in this season’s league, that’s for others to discuss and not something discussed among he and his Tigers team-mates.

“Honestly, we just don’t pay attention to it,” says Green.

“We understand the media and fans are talking about it and that’s fine, but honestly, we just want to get better every day.

“I know it sounds cliche, sounds scripted, but it’s just the way we are, the way we work, our focus is on improvement.”

Tigers now play back-to-back Premiership Rugby Cup fixtures, with the 21/22 competition getting underway for the Leicester squad at Mattioli Woods Welford on Saturday (November 13) against Sale Sharks.
