Wasps thrash sorry Leeds

Leeds remain at the foot of the Aviva Premiership after a crushing 51-18 seven-try hammering by Wasps at Adams Park.

The West Yorkshire club now have only two games in which to escape relegation. The final fixture is at flying Northampton so next weekend's home game against Harlequins is almost certainly a must win.

Leeds competed well in the early stages of the match but as the game wore on they had no answer to the pace and skills of Richard Haughton and Joe Simpson both of whom scored two tries with David Walder, on his last appearance at Adams Park kicking fourteen points.

A young Wasps side were without the likes of Andy Powell, Serge Betsen and David Lemi but they produced a much-improved performance to record only their second win in 10 games.
