Wasps' scrum creaking like a tea clipper in a gale.

Lowe spotted a huge hole there, shouldn't have used Sexton tbf.

Jesus, we're clinging in there at the moment, but there are some ominous signs.

Good for Poite. Sick of teams pissing time away with huddles miles away from the lineout.

If Henshaw straightened and just passed to McGrath rather than running for the corner flag that he was never making McGrath would have been under the posts.

That's very well bought from Simpson, pretends Lowe has taken him out.

Lowe should have been penalised for being on the wrong side regardless.

Can't say that I am a fan of the Leinster "pre-sweated" shirts.

Very dumb by Henshaw to run away from the support.

If i was a Leinster fan i’d be fuming with McGrath in this half. He may be playing to orders, but he really is slowing everything down so much.

Sexton doesn't look 100% he's a bit slow to get up all the time

Pretty frustrating 30 mins from Leinster, we could have had 3 more tries there

There's a heated response every time his creativity is mentioned, but it's these sorts of things that bring it out.

He had support there but didn't look for it, ran up a blind alley and tried a Hail Mary after going to ground.

I'm positive that last season Wasps opposition had a yellow overturned because there was a technical error just before.

And in that set of phases he really picked the pace up.

"A momentum shift" Brian?

I'm not quite sure if he actually knows what he's saying half the time. Cronin try was "against the run of play" :lol:

Cronin bailed out, that ends up a yard forward.

Killer score.

Added to Cronin's try not being checked, we have the moral victory in the bag :proud:

12-3 against a strong wind is a very good score. Wasps have made over 100 tackles in one half. They'll surely tire in the last 20.

I'm assuming this is directed at Lowe ?

Have you seen him when he lets it go free ?

It is obviously still pretty windy, can see us pinging wasps back into their half and forcing them to try and run it out.
