Tansey told the club’s official website: “It was a disappointing result but we were in the game most of the way until the last 20 minutes.
“They got a few late tries but it was a lot closer than the scoreline suggests.
“Our kicking game wasn’t as good – we needed a good kicking game to compete and turn them round, but we struggled with that a little bit. But there are a lot of other positives to take out of the game.
“Before the game we knew that we could turn them over – we beat them at home earlier in the season – so we knew that we had a chance.
“We know that we are a good team and that we can compete with the very good teams.
