Determined Wasps beaten as Saracens remain undefeated

Wasps fell to a 21-5 loss against regaining champions Saracens at Allianz Park

Wasps fell to a 21-5 loss against regaining champions Saracens at Allianz Park. The visitors were put under pressure for large parts of the game but refused to fold, denying the hosts a try bonus point in the final play. Saracens looked good value for their victory as they dominated possession and territory and remain undefeated.

Wasps started brightly but were soon pinned deep inside half after a string of penalties. Despite a yellow card for Nora Baltruweit, Wasps managed to keep the visitors off the scoreboard for the entirety of the sin bin card period.

Wasps defended valiantly for large periods of the first half but the deadlock was broken shortly before half time. After stopping Saracens from a lineout, the ball was spread wide and Vicky Fleetwood carried well to dot the ball down in the tackle. An excellent touchline conversion gave the hosts a 7-0 lead.

Saracens were fast out the blocks in the second half, with two tries in quick succession. An initial break from Sarah McKenna put Saracens in striking distance – but a powerful scrum forced the referee to award a penalty try. The second came shortly after as captain Lotte Clapp pounced on a loose ball and raced away to score from 40m, extending the lead to 21-0.

Wasps continued to battle hard and began to work themselves into the game. Their opening try came after Tova Derk used her pace to break inside the Saracens 22m, Sarah Mitchelson was on hand to finish off the score. Despite further field position for the black and gold, they were unable to convert the opportunity into points.

Saracens regained a foothold in the game and looked like they would score a bonus point try at the death. However, after a monumental defensive effort following a yellow card to Kate Hallett, Wasps repelled the home side to deny them the extra point.

The result sees Saracens retain their position at the top of the Tyyrell’s Premier 15s as unbeaten this season. Wasps will look to regain momentum next week as they host Richmond at the Ricoh Arena.
