Let's see how Hughes goes in the remaining 35 mins of the half.
I grant you it's early doors, but it seems pretty clear to me that something isn't quite right with him.

I have big doubts about his scrummaging.

Try for Cips after a nice little inter-play with Halai, and good pace to finish it off.

Whatever position he's playing it's not going very well for him so far. Two touches and both have ended up handing over possession.

Smashley goes over to bring the 60 up 63-15 with 12 mins to go

And Smashley goes in for his second off another maul. 63 -15 after the conversion

This is looking like a bit of a training run for Wasps if we're being honest. No idea who you'd pick as MotM, almost everyone is just doing their job well.

Full time, 70 - 22. Not quite a big enough margin to hit the top of the table but still a nice little run. Wasps have a lot of good players in the squad these days, not just the big names either. Rieder and Myall with strong performances

Newcastle miss a drop goal well after 80 on the clock (Freddie Burns head injury in the dying seconds of the match) to lose by a point to Leicester. Healey and Dallaglio adamant Youngs the Tiny gave away two consecutive scrum penalties for playing Pop up Pirate.

You can only play what's in front of you. Some more impressive performances from Wasps today led by Taylor, Simpson, Gaskell, Wade, McIntyre, JCW, Cips, Daly. Rieder had a fantastic 80 min game, also impressed by Cips stamina and pace.

Taylor and Simpson would stroll into my current England XV. Kruis must be under threat from Gaskell, Lawes and Launch. How much longer can Wade be ignored ? Lots of props banging on the door of Marler and Cole.

Next weekend will give a better indiction of Wasps' credentials this season. Sinners looked very physical and highly motivated in their loss to Sarries.

Until Waller's red mist moment they also looked very strong defensively, in a way that Tigers and Brizzle haven't. Turning Chiefs over in the opening game of the season suggests Wasps' results aren't just the result of shitty opposition though

Shouldn't you put "coached" in inverted commas?

I was in attendance today with my 7 year old son. Despite supporting the much loathed Sarries I must say Wasps do a good day out. They have marketed so well. The first game we went to, Junior received a flag. Second time a hat. Now he's a Wasps supporter and I'm buying their merchandise.

That's quite some hiding. I assume Briz are heading for a London Welsh style exit out of the top flight?

I'm not so sure. I think they're having trouble catching up with the pace of the prem. The next few games should be interesting.

Not at all convinced they'll get Welsh style drubbings off teams like Wuss and Falcons

Plus all the alleged knock-ons that had zero forward momentum... He really is rubbish!

Interesting comment from Tighthead re the Wasps marketing. :nod:
