Last gasp defeat for Wasps as Round 2 draws to a close

Shaun Edwards is going to be fuming now! Worcester inflicted a second consecutive defeat on the reigning champions with a last-minute penalty at Adams Park. Wasps had led 10-8 for most of the second half but a Loki Crichton penalty won the game for the Warriors.

Elsewhere in the Guinness Premiership, Newcastle defeated Northampton at Kingston Park 32-22 with Jonny Wilkinson scoring 22 points.

On Saturday, Gloucester won at Bath for the first time ever (17-21), Harlequins beat Bristol at The Stoop (31-13) and Leicester had a narrow victory over London Irish (24-22), whilst on Friday night Charlie Hodgson’s dropped goal in the dying seconds was enough to secure an 18-15 win over Saracens.

Whilst we await Jon Hobbs review and analysis, let us know your thoughts on the latest results. Is Wilkinson back on form? What’s going wrong at Wasps? Are the ELVs causing too much kicking?
