Further disappointment for Wasps and Newcastle in Round 3

Round three of the Guinness Premiership was marked by another Wasps defeat, a bonus-point victory for Northampton over sorry Newcastle and the fact that 5 of the 6 games were decided by margins of fewer than 5 points.

The competitive nature of the league is quite clear even this early in the season, demonstrated by the fact that after three matches, just two sides remain unbeaten.

Jon Hobbs is preparing his thoughts on this week’s action, but feel free to leave your comments here on the plight of Lawrence Dallaglio’s old side, or the quality of Heyneke Meyer’s start to the season.
