There are protocols for this aren't there? i.e. the bolded bits for EQP.

Interesting to see how Jordan Williams goes at 15. He was the great hope a while ago

When is this on? Interested to see this.

A classic contrast of styles in the mid field.

I was told by an English poster that you needed at least one big centre to make it through the AP... Let's see how El Waspos do, they've looked good so far, with big signings still to be sighted.

Having beaten quality sides like Exeter and Lycester in the opening two rounds I can see Wasps falling over themselves against Bristol. We're usually fairly rubbish against the less fancied sides.

Makes it a good game to start a few 2nd choice players. They'll help drive things and Gaskell won't want his first game as captain to be a loss.

what did Hughes do from being a starting player last season to becoming a bench player?

He looked tired against Exeter. Potentially injured. Perhaps going hard in training to get to standard for England. Thompson doesn't let anyone down though.

Not really. Starting your strongest side for every game would be madness. Squad rotation is the only way to go.

Looking forward to seeing how Palamo does. The Eagles really need him to step his game up.

Agreed Anon. I think the 2nds will have plenty of drive regardless. Our depth is nice this season, especially since i have confidence in a lot of our squad guys.

Yes obviously. However we do have a rather poor record against teams we should beat. I think Wasps have historically suffered from a bit of complacency.

Taylor in off a driving maul within the first couple of minutes. Wasps look lively but struggling to get on the right side of Wigglesworth's calls at the breakdown.

Is this game on tv? I can't find it.

If it is I would be very grateful if someone could let me know where.

The teams trade a penalty each and then Wasps score off a nice cross-field kick from Cips which bounced back infield off the corner flag, dotted down by Daly. 16-3 with the conversion to come

It isn't, BT have gone with Falcons - Tigers. This stream's not bad though: http://www.usagoals.me/rugby/1686918/1/ ... nline.html

And then JCW goes over. Once Wasps make a linebreak they all switch on, and usually score a try soon afterwards.

Rieder's doing nicely. Wasps have a really good squad this year, last season they relied on Hughes for front-foot ball an enormous amount but this year they are making line breaks from across the team. The double playmaker option is working brilliantly so far too

Been impressed with Hurrell so far this season as well, looking at Brizzle for a moment. Good leg-drive and a quick thinker

A 5th through Wade, lovely heads up rugby from across the team for that one but it came from a Daly break.

Wasps 35 - Bristol 3 with the conversion still to come

Individually Bristol look to be good enough, but their chemistry and communication is woeful.

If Wasps score another try (which you'd hope they would) they will go top of the tries scored list so far. Currently tied with Bath at 12

10-0 now. Tigers are really going to have to work on their slow starts because they have dug themselves into a hole in the first half of every game they've played so far

Good try for Lam, Bristol not going to lie down and take it the whole time.

37-8 after Pisi misses the conversion

Wade pulls a try basically out of his arse. Wasps 44-8 with the conversion (hasn't been taken yet but was scored under the posts).

On another note, Hughes still not looking anything close to his best

Let's see how Hughes goes in the remaining 35 mins of the half.
