Justin Burnell believes London Welsh can use their two successive league defeats to come back strongerI.

Welsh were beaten by Bedford and London Scottish before also losing top spot in the Greene King IPA Championship to Bristol.

And head coach Burnell knows his side must improve when they visit Jersey tomorrow.

“We are licking our wounds, but taking this is an opportunity,” he said.

“This week is about rectifying the problems of the past two league games.

“Jersey are a good side at home, but this weekend is about London Welsh putting in a performance worthy of our top-four status.

“We didn’t play well against Bedford and London Scottish, but we still had enough possession to have won both games comfortably.

“We just need to improve our decision making at key times.”
