I would suspect it is down to adjustment.

Ime problems with hydrualic clutches usually show up as the biting point getting close to the floor (nackered master last time I had this), or the pedal getting very light due to leakage at slave cylinder, to the point that it's so light that it won't move the clutch fork.

yea thanks i dont think the clutch is worn, as ive put my foot down in 5th from low speed and theres no slippage, also put it in 5th when stationary with brake applied and let the clutch out and it stalled straight away if it was slipping it wouldnt of stalled immediatly
thanks ill try adjusting the clutch and bleeding the system
