In their first match against Barbarians the youngsters ran in four tries without reply.

Connor Brewster claimed two and Conner Bayley and Sam Warburton one.

Wasps lost 4-1 to Hinckley in their second match, despite taking the lead after a strong run by Lewis Cross.

Wasps then defeated Rotherham 5-1. Good tackling from Brewster and Archie Hunter led to turnover ball for Jacob Mcfarlane and a try for Cross. Cross then off-loaded for Louis Jaafar to score.

In the second period, good play was rewarded with a try, having driven over at a ruck controlled by Cian Vaughan, and an interception from Sam Warburton led to a score.

In the seconds final, Wasps defeated Clamart 2-1. Cross ran in a couple of tries.

Wasps are looking for more players in their first two years of senior school.

The team trains on Thursdays, from 6pm-7.30pm, and this Sunday, from 10am-noon, at the Roses sports ground, Gainsborough.

A summer camp is planned for 29th and 30th August at Roses, costing £25 for the two days, for youngsters in current years six, seven and eight.
