Wasps 17-17 Leicester

A Leicester rally denied Wasps a victory in the tight game in High Wycombe.

Wasps led 17-7 in the final quarter – but, an Andy Goode penalty and an Austin Healey try three minutes from time, converted by Goode, levelled it.

Wasps were 6-0 up early on with Ed Thrower penalties before Tom Varndell’s converted try put Leicester in front!

Mark van Gisbergen’s try gave Wasps an 11-7 half-time lead but two more Thrower penalties were not enough. Especially when Thrower missed a further penalty with 10 minutes to go.

The game lacked many of the regulars on International duty, but former England captains, Dallaglio and Johnson kept the fight going!
