Wasps clinch play-off place in humdinger at Kingsholm

London Wasps secured a place in next week's play off semi-final with a win at Gloucester following a fabulous game of rugby.

Wasps dominated the first half, to go ahead 20-8 at halftime. Tries from Worsley and Van Gisbergen countered a score from Gloucester centre Anthony Allen that had taken Gloucester ahead in the 9th minute.

Gloucester then staged a dramatic comeback to surge ahead at the start of the second half, three tries in 20 minutes allowing them to take a 32-20 lead at the hour mark.

Wasps showed spirit and courage however, and conjured two tries from the last ten minutes, the first for Sackey and then a second in the match for Worlsey, to overhaul their hosts and run out the victors.

The win secures Wasps a semi-final tie with Sale at Edgeley Park next Sunday, kick off at 1.30pm.
