Lam unconcerned by poor run


Connacht head coach Pat Lam says he isn't concerned by his side's current run of form which has seen them suffer three defeats in succession.

Lam's charges face a difficult task as they travel to PRO12 leaders Scarlets on Sunday where they are yet to register a victory, but the former Samoa and All Black international is happy that they are creating chances and will get their reward in time.

“I think we’re creating opportunities but not quite finishing them off but we’ve got to put that in context of the conditions,” Lam said.

“The Ulster game was the first time we hadn’t scored a try in a game. If you look at the conditions, both teams struggled, they scored right in the last minute, and the game on the weekend too, again horrendous conditions.

“These games, in particular, with the fire and the emotion of a derby game, both defences were very good so it’s not a concern. We’re trying to create those chances.

“I’m loving the effort the boys are putting in and we’re just not as clinical as we could be.”
