Wasps In The Fourth Position In Aviva Premiership

Fine form was continued by the Wasps as they arrived at the Ricoh Arena and won over Gloucester in the Aviva Premiership with 32-31.

Despite beating Harlequins, Sale and London Irish they turned back to the Coventry City and claimed maximum points from behind.

After 25 minutes, Gloucester was leading by 10-0 due to penalty made by James Hook yet it was Wasps roaring back with Elliot Dally, Thomas Young and Rob Miller. They were ahead by 17-13. In the second half there were two attempts as well with Young and Guy Thompson scoring from the side of Gloucester and sealed a win which was nine in the Premiership. In the first half the results were looking to be going elsewhere but it was all in the hands of Gloucester who had won seven matches out of 8. Advantage was also built up.

The first penalty was missed by Hook as he was 35 metres far to make a kick. The first attempt was made by the visitors as Mark Atkinson grabbed the ball in the 18th minute. The pass was then towards Moriarty who made an attempt lying in the post. Rhythm of attack was caught by Wasps and then it was time to grab by Young in the 25 metres. Three more attempts could have been scored easily by the Wasps in the 6 minute but it was inefficient on their part.

Before it was time for break, Wasps were clear and went in with positivity. Young scored his second attempt as well. It was strong performance on the part of Wasps as they stretched ahead by which their position was fourth. The lead was by 27-21 as charge was completed by Thompson and they are above Bath with Exeter above them on points levelling.
