MARCO Mama reckons Worcester Warriors’ crowd-pleasing “all-court” brand of rugby can cause their Gallagher Premiership rivals problems this season.

The Zimbabwean back rower was devastating with ball in hand on Sunday as he crashed over in Worcester’s 52-7 mauling of Bristol Bears at Sixways.

Mama said he was happy to be one of Warriors’ go-to ball carriers but insisted his side’s ability to attack from all angles was the key to opening up defences.

“We have got a lot of good carriers in the team,” said the 27-year-old.

“You can see what the likes of Bryce Heem and Josh Adams can do to defences and the creativity from the guys inside of them as well.

“I guess I am one of the players the team would definitely look to go to for carrying but we are best when we move the ball.

“You could see on Sunday that we weren’t just running into brick walls as we showed the ball by making a couple of passes. You have got to make the defence make decisions. That’s when the holes open up.

“We are an all-court team as we can carry through you and go around you. That’s what threatens teams.”

Gerrit-Jan van Velze, Ryan Mills, Francois Venter, Chris Pennell, Adams and Heem also crossed the whitewash in the bumper home triumph.

Mama said it was an afternoon where everything came together as they chalked up their second victory of the season to climb to seventh place.

“Sometimes you have games that really click for you, but (Sunday’s performance) had been coming for a little while,” Mama said.

“You saw a glimpse of what we can do against Leicester Tigers.

“We had put in good performances at times and felt we were probably performing a little bit better than our results suggested.

“It was just nice to have a day at home where we were really clinical.

“The crowd deserved that. You could see that when we started scoring those tries how much the fans get behind us.

“It is great to feel the passion of the crowd when we do play the rugby that they love watching.”

Mama made more than 100 appearances for Bristol before joining Warriors permanently in the summer of 2016.

But he did not hold back in his celebration after scoring against his former employers.

“I don’t score very often so you have got to make sure they count,” Mama added.

“(The celebration was) an in the moment (reaction) as there is a big crowd and such a big game.

“I sort of stuck my hand up and thought ‘what I am doing?’ “It is fantastic to get one over the old club but I have got a lot of respect for Bristol as they gave me a great opportunity when I was a very young boy and I developed a lot there.

“Sunday was a pretty special day for me.”
