Wade stars in Wasps win

Two superb tries from Christian Wade were the highlights as Wasps claimed a 29-19 win over a dogged but limited London Welsh side at Adams Park on Sunday.

The visitors had no answer to the pace and elusiveness of the 20-year-old wing, who must surely be in the future thoughts of the national selectors, having been omitted from the recently announced squad for the autumn internationals.

Tom Varndell also impressed with two tries but Wasps should have won by a far greater margin. They were careless at times and it didn't help that Nicky Robinson missed five from his six attempts.

Lee Thomas kicked six points for the victors while Phil Mackenzie and Franck Montanella scored London Welsh's tries with Gavin Henson kicking six points and Gordon Ross three.
