Competitive Wasps side suffer defeat to clinical Loughborough

Wasps fell to a 28-10 defeat at Loughborough Lightning in the Tyrrell’s Premier 15s

Wasps fell to a 28-10 defeat at Loughborough Lightning in the Tyrrell’s Premier 15s. Despite creating several good opportunities, the visitors will regret a number of errors that kept them from crossing the whitewash. The hosts demonstrated their clinical edge, making the most of their chances to rack up a bonus point victory.

Loughborough made a fast start as the opening kick-off pinned Wasps on their own 5m. The hosts quickly gained the ball back and drove over from close range. Loughborough kept the pressure on early on but Wasps forced a number of key turnovers to keep lightning to one score.

The visitors got themselves on the board on the 20-minute mark after a long period of build-up play, working their way up the field, resulting in a penalty kick from Lizzie Goulden. Wasps found themselves in good position to extend their lead shortly afterwards but unforced errors cost the black and gold side dearly.

Loughborough got the next score of the game, despite tackles flying in from the defensive side, including a huge tackle from Rocky Clark on her return to the side. The hosts struck from close range to extend the lead to 14-3. Wasps had further opportunities through a dominant scrum to close the gap but the score remained the same going into half time.

Wasps started brightly in the second half working themselves into good field position but were unable to convert. It was Loughborough who opened the scoring in the second half with their first excursion into the Wasps 22m, another drive from short range crossing the whitewash.

The visitors continued to threaten to narrow the score but a number of opportunities went awry. Loughborough put the game beyond doubt with a forth try just after the hour mark from a strong driving maul.

Wasps finally got rewarded for their attacking endeavour with a try in the final play of the game. After remaining patient with ball in hand following a scrum deep in Loughborough territory, Hannah West crossed from close range. The hooker scoring as she celebrated her 50th appearance in black and gold.

Wasps will rue a number of errors which meant the scoreboard failed to reflect the attacking endeavour of the visiting side. Despite a heavy loss, Wasps will know they are not far off competing with the strongest sides in the league. Their attention will now turn to ensuring they bounce back with a win as they host Firwood Waterloo next weekend.
