The Guinness Premiership - Mid Feb 2009

Following the spectacular game against Leicester today, Wasps move up the table in the Premiership. Today's game really was a return to form. It was really, really, good. Cipriani didn't kick well at first, but found his form of old. Bishay was doing well, and also using his 'unique verbal skills' to great effect (it's a shame we can't mike him up!). Robinson made a superb break allowing Betsen to score.

It was great. At 14 points up with 80 minutes gone, the guys went for the bonus. It wasn't to be, and Leicester got the break for a losing bonus and a four try bonus - but importantly, Wasps got the four points.... and the comedy of the running toward the kicker for the final conversion.

I just hope that they keep this form for Northampton!
