The full-back admits that the campaign proved a big disappointment, with the team failing to break into the top half of the Premiership despite a couple of decent unbeaten runs.
"We were very disappointed with how the season went and the position were ended up in was not what we wanted," he reflected. "It was a tough season and hopefully we will learn from it and improve from here.
"The campaign was not an easy one, but you must talk about the team, the way we played and we didn't perform. It was a difficult season all round.
"There were good games, but there was also some not so good ones. At the end of the day you need a bit of consistency to reach where we want to reach, which is the top six."
Mauricio was encouraged by the impact made by the younger players introduced to the team and feels the likes of Johnnie Jackson, Stephen Kelly, Dean Marney and Mark Yeates will benefit from the management structure now in place, headed up by Jacques Santini and Frank Arnesen.
"We need a settled environment to be able to grow and hopefully things will improve for the next campaign.
"The young players did well, but you also have to remember that the platform for them when they came in was not ideal. It is much easier, like when I made my debut, to come in when it is all settled and the team is doing well.
"I'm sure they didn't find it easy, or not as easy as it could have been in my opinion."
Mauricio Taricco insists the team must learn lessons from last season and improve.
