WASPS V SARACENS, MAY 2017, RICOH ARENA

The last time Saracens faced Wasps the hosts clinched a bonus point victory over the Men in Black.

Wasps began the scoring with a penalty then Saracens responded quickly with a try from Ben Spencer under the posts taking the score to 3–7. The hosts struck back with Thomas Young touching down in the corner giving them a 1-point lead. Saracens soon regained the lead from the boot of Marcelo Bosch. The topsy-turvy scoring of the 1st half continued as Wasps resumed the lead with a penalty backed up by another try from Youngs sending the teams to the changing rooms with the hosts holding a 16–10 lead.

In the second half with tries from both sides took the score to 23-15. Unfortunately, the Wasps’ could not be calmed and a try from Elliot Daly followed by another from Youngs made the final score 37–15.

 

SARACENS V WASPS, OCTOBER 2016, ALLIANZ PARK

Before Sarries made the trip up to Coventry, they welcomed Wasps to Allianz Park to play in front of a sell-out crowd.

The first 40 minutes were very tight despite an early try from Mako Vunipola with it looking like the teams would be going into the break tied up at 8–8, but a last second try from Wigglesworth gave the hosts a 13–8 lead at half time.

The second half saw the visitors attacking ability come out to play forcing some strong defence from the Saracens. With both sides trading penalties and errors creeping into each team it was a drive to the line from Saracens and eventual try from Jamie George which moved the score forward. The momentum was with Saracens for the last 10 minutes, with George crossing for another try, converted by Ben Spencer giving the hosts a 30–14 victory.
