Wasps Ready to Sting

London Wasps are a team on a mission and they are doing it with class.

The rugby union side have in the past been at the upper reaches of the game, having won Premiership and Heineken cups in the glory days, lead by England star Lawrence Dallaglio.

However in recent season they have languished down near the bottom of the table, and faced the real possibility of relegation last season.

Yet now, they are back, and back with a sting in their tail.

With England stars Tom Varndell and Christian Wade on the wing, they are the second leading points scorers in the league, behind only leaders Harelquins.

Although they have won only seven of their games in the league, out of a possible 13, they have picked up nine bonus points during the season, proving that no-one has demolished them thus far.

Yesterdays comfortable 29-15 home win against Bath gave them their ninth straight home win in all competitions at Adams Park and moved them up into the top four for the first time this year.

They have built this momentum by playing rugby safer, doing the simple things right but when it matter attack with power and pace and it is working for the High Wycombe outfit.

With this run appearing to have no end, Wasps could well be on the hunt for glory once more.

This weekends other results saw Saracens defeat bottom club Sale Sharks 32-12, Harlequins win away at London Welsh 26-31, Northampton defeat Exeter Chiefs 30-19 and London Irish surprisingly beat Gloucester 19-12.
