6 Nations Wasps too Strong for Gallic Flare

A Wasps team made up up French, Scots Welsh Irish and English, fed on Italian Pizza proved too strong for Stade Francais in a thrilling climax to the U13's remarkable season. Trailing 5-25 at half time Wasps turned the match on its head with 20 minutes of the best rugby they have played this year to run out winners 40-35 and to complete the season having won every match. The evening before Wasps had played against Paris St Germain in front of local TV News and ran out winners 35-12. In the second half of this match Wasps faced a team full of 14 and a couple of 15 year olds and only conceded 1 score in a Herculean effort which set the tone for the brave display the next day. The tour was a great success, enormous fun for everyone, with new contacts and friendships made. Many many thanks to tour sponsors Danone and all who helped organise and fund raise for the tour and many thanks to Wasps FC for their generous support.
