WORCESTER Warriors' Scott Baldwin did not stand on ceremony in his overall assessment of his side's 48-3 defeat to Leicester Tigers at Sixways on Saturday.

The hooker, who is stand in skipper with Ted Hill and Willi Heinz out of action, cut a disconsolate figure post-match and admitted Worcester just were not good enough.

"Embarrassing really," he said.

"The scoreline at home isn't acceptable. I cannot fault the effort of the team but we have to be a lot more accurate both sides of the ball; defensively and with the ball in hand.

"We look at our backline, if we can get the ball to them in space they can be deadly. We have Duhan van der Merwe on the wing, we just need to get him the ball on the front foot."

It was a woeful performance from the hosts but the league leaders, who scored seven tries, were well worth their huge win.

"We knew they (Leicester) would come in through the front door, they are the Leicester of old," he added.

"They weren't going to try and play around us and that's what they did.

"When they made line breaks and got on the front foot, George Ford is one of the best in the world at playing on top of you like that and (Nemani) Nadolo out wide as well, you cannot give him those opportunities.

"Leicester were relentless in the second half. We had opportunities and pressure but we didn't convert and at the moment we aren't able to do it.

It is sure to be a bleak review on Monday morning and Baldwin said in the post-game huddle that everyone had to have a hard look at themselves.

"This is an honest group," he added.

"I said at the end; "go home and be honest with yourself". I don't think we need to come out on Monday and point fingers. all the players will admit they didn't give the best version of themselves but then the challenge is, can we change that Friday night at Northampton.

"We have to own that performance."
