On Sunday 18th May I was back at Adams Park for the first time in a while, and the last time this season, to see London Wasps hang on to secure a 30-29 win over Stade Francais to be in the driving seat of the the two leg play off for the final place in next seasons new European Champions Cup competition. It was was an amazing game which could have seen Wasps finish with a commanding lead, but for the French team not giving up and fighting hard to get back into the game. The weather was perfect as was the atmosphere around the ground.
Today, Saturday 24th May, London Wasps produced an almost perfect performance to seal there place with a 6-20 win away in Paris. An aggregate score of 35-50!
Dai Young, Wasps Director of Rugby, said after the match:
“I thought that we were excellent today. It was probably the first time we have played for the full 80 minutes. We did very little wrong throughout the game and I certainly felt like we wanted it more than them today. The boys did themselves proud and I am really proud of their efforts today.”
