- Wasps lose out to Gloucester
- Wasps’ run of six successive wins came to an end, against a determined Gloucester side who made light of a series of injuries and were deserved winners. The home side dominated the first half and led 10-3 at the break. Christian Wade’s scintillating 42nd-minute try produced the most memorable moment for Wasps before Greig Laidlaw landed a penalty with 24 minutes to play, which turned out to be the deciding score.
- The Case for Ruaridh Jackson as Wasps' First Choice Fly Half
- Jimmy Gopperth is clearly the first choice at 10 for Wasps, I'd like to show why that is a mistake. Firstly lets just look at the basic statistics of the season so far.
- Wasps are dead, Long Live WASPS!
- Yesterday saw Wasps take on Toulon at the Ricoh Arena in the group stages of the European Champions Cup. It was a special game for a number of reasons. Firstly, it was coming off the back of an amazing win against Irish Giants Leinster away from home in Dublin, and we were looking to break the 20,000 barrier for attendance. It's almost as incredible that we are playing teams like Leinster and winning as it is that we are getting more than 20,000 people coming to home games in our own ground.
- Jimmy Gopperth's Appeal
- Last weekend at Welford Road during the match against Leicester Tigers our newly signed Fly Half Jimmy Gopperth was yellow carded for a late challenge against Matthew Tate. He was later cited and banned for three weeks after the citing committee decided it was an intentional strike.
- Cheats Apparently Prosper Very Well Indeed
- This week Premiership Rugby released a statement letting the world know that the ongoing issues relating to a number of clubs breaking the salary cap had been resolved, and that no-one in fact had broken the cap.

- England Rugby March 2016 - In Review
- Wow how good was March 2016 - not just Six Nations Champions but Grand Slam Winners as well. Huge thanks has to go to Eddie Jones and his backstaff team. Who would have thought of this outcome after the awful showing in the RWC2015. Anyway, brilliant stuff and lots of reasons to be very cheerful!
- Chris Ashton chats to sportsbeat about his England hopes
- Eddie Jones’ England reign has already been one characterised by fresh starts, and if Chris Ashton has his way he will be the next man handed a shot at redemption. The Saracens winger returned to action in style last weekend, scoring two tries against an out-of-sorts Bath, following his ten-week ban for making contact with the eyes of Ulster centre Luke Marshall. That ended any chance of Six Nations involvement but the period has been one of reflection for Ashton, who remains as determined as ever to join Jones’ newly crowned Grand Slam winners for their summer tour in Australia. Premiership champions Saracens are well placed to defend their title this term, sitting top of the table despite a turbulent Six Nations period which saw many of their international stars – and Ashton – out of action. But with Jones already showing he is happy to bring the likes of new skipper Dylan Hartley in from the cold after his World Cup snub, Ashton is now relishing the chance to shine in Sarries’ title tilt.
