Alan Solomons highlighted Tom Howe's disallowed try as a "pivotal" moment in Worcester Warriors' 30-13 loss to Bristol Bears on Saturday. 

Howe looked to have scored what would have been a crucial try on the 65th minute but referee Ian Tempest adjudged Oli Morris to have knocked the ball on in the build-up. 

It would have seen Warriors take the lead with 15 minutes to play but instead, Bristol went up the other end to score two minutes later before a late penalty try sealed the deal. 

"I havent studied it yet," Solomons said about the disallowed score.

"When you have a tackle like that, the ball natually pops out.

"I thought it was fine, I'm not sure what the referee said on field or whether he gave the try and then reversed it but I dont know. 

"But that was a pivotal moment in the game. 

"I'll look at it properly and as always i'll go through the proper protocols."

Despite the controversial call, Solomons admitted his side were the creators of their own downfall at times. 

Following the Marco Mama try five minutes after the break to put Worcester into the lead, it was a simple knock on at the restart from Nick David that resulted in Bryan Byrne's score for the Bears two minutes later.

Solomons said there couldn't be any blame on anyone else with regards to those errors.

"We've spoke about that so often," he said.

"Knock on at the restart and we give them a try straight back to lose that lead. 

"We have no one but ourselves to blame for that. 

"We had both possession and territory but we couldn't convert pressure into points. 

"It was very disappointing in the end."

There was some positive news after the game as Matt Kvesic, who was stretchered off in the second-half, was seen walking about after the match and it appears it was just a "stinger". 

Marco Mama also limped off in the second 40 and we wait to hear news about his situation.
