Newcastle Falcons boss Rob Andrew is still searching for the missing ingredients to solve the Falcons apparent inability to constantly give away silly scores and lose away from their Kingston Park nest.
"I wish I could put my finger on it," said the former Wasps and England fly-half. "But we just don't seem to bring our game to away grounds."
"Whether it's competing for the ball at the kick-off, or being a bit ill-discipline at the breakdown, which we were at Leicester and gave them 21 points through the boot in the first half, and we were 21 points down again here at half-time."
"We seem to snatch a bit at the ball when we do have it in the first half, and what bit of ball we did have I think we put three down almost as soon as we had them. So you keep taking pressure off the opposition and putting it back on yourself."
"It doesn't matter who you are playing rugby doesn't allow you to pile pressure on yourself so easily. If you are going to put pressure on yourself you could at least make other sides work for it, but we just didn't do that in the first half."
"When we kept the ball in the second half we actually looked dangerous for spells, and the disappointing thing, from our point of view, is that having performed pretty well at home this season, despite having lost to Gloucester, we were the only side this morning to beat Wasps and Leeds, albeit at Kingston Park, but we are not translating much of that form away from home, and that is the concern."
"There was a little spell just after half-time today when we looked quite dangerous and we scored the try that got us back to 21-13, and just when you thought that we had got over what was a poor first half where we gifted them a try within 47 seconds on my stop watch, and then penalties, you can't do that away from home."
"We've basically given Northampton, Leicester and Quins, handed them on a plate, and said 'here you are at home', have a good start to the game and then we will see if we are good enough to catch you - I'm not sure that any side in this Premiership is because it is such a tough Premiership now that it is a fantastic competition and you have to be at a very high level every week to be competitive."
"That was a poor first half. We had a good chat at half-time, and I thought we came out at the start of the second half absolutely flying and got to 21-13, had another opportunity as well to score again, and we could have been right back in the game within five minutes of the second half."
"Then having done that, and you think we might have a foothold, we then get a sin-bin and another try given and suddenly what chance you feel you've got evaporated again, and although we had in patches some nice stuff in the second half, we were pretty much always two scores down, and away from home that is very difficult to overcome."
