Dominant Wasps rebound with impressive victory against Firwood Waterloo

Wasps maintained their spot in the top four with a convincing 34-0 victory over Firwood Waterloo

Wasps maintained their spot in the top four with a convincing 34-0 victory over Firwood Waterloo. The hosts dominated the scoreboard and territory for the majority of the game. However, strong defensive work was also needed to keep a determined Waterloo side off the scoreboard. The result will build some much-needed momentum with important fixtures coming up over the new year.

Wasps were in the ascendancy from the opening kick-off, keeping Waterloo pinned deep in their own half. Louse Dodd was first to cross the whitewash after 10 minutes after taking a pass at pace and clattering over the line.

Waterloo worked a strong attacking opportunity from the resulting kick-off but Wasps defence held firm. Two missed penalties from the visiting side kept them off the scoreboard. However, Wasps demonstrated their clinical nature with a score from nowhere shortly after. After regaining possession in midfield, excellent handling in horrible conditions found Garnet Mackinder out wide who raced in for the score.

Wasps extended their lead shortly afterwards. A driving maul put the hosts close but it was Wasps legend Rocky Clark who finished off from close range.

Wasps looked to have scored through Nic Smith on the stroke of half time but the referee adjudged there to be an accidental offside in the build up and blew the half time whistle with the hosts leading 15-0.

Wasps came firing out the blocks in the second half as Hannah West raced through a gap in the Waterloo defence to score within two minutes.

The hosts looked dangerous throughout the second half with Claudia MacDonald breaking through the defence to race upfield and work a strong position. Kanyinsola Adefemiwa-afilaka showed her strength to steal the ball in the tackle. Quick handling spread the ball wide and gave the space for Garnet Mackinder to dart down the touchline for her second of the day.

With weather conditions worsening Waterloo’s strong direct carrying worked them back into good position. Club captain Kate Alder (Sponsored by PSB Industries) and Liz Crake leading the defensive line forced crucial turnovers. Crake then stole the ball and broke 70m downfield before being hauled down by the final defender.

Wasps final score came from the resulting scrum as Claudia MacDonald picked up from the base of the scrum and raced over after fending off the Waterloo defender. The final score a 34-0 victory for the hosts.

A strong performance from the home side creates much needed momentum after a tough result against Loughborough Lightning last week. With a trip to Worcester before hosting leaders Saracens before the new year, Wasps will be pleased with their efforts on both sides of the ball to earn an impressive score line.
