Wasps hold on for Warriors win

Wasps held off a late Worcester charge to record a 10-6 victory in a poor match at Adams Park.

Wasps started strongly with a try after only three minutes. Billy Vunipola and Joe Launchbury made big inroads into the Worcester defence and good ball retention saw prop Simon McIntyre drive over for the try which Stephen Jones converted - and Jones made no mistake with an angled penalty to give his side a 10-point advantage at half-time.

Early in the second half, a handling error by Andrea Masi allowed Worcester a position in the Wasps' half and when the hosts were penalised, a Goode penalty gave Warriors their first points before Goode reduced the arrears to only four when he fired over a splendid drop-goal from close on 50 metres.
