WASPS 19-20 GLOUCESTER (Saturday)
Billy Twelvetress was Gloucester’s lifesaver with the penalty converted with 180 seconds remaining.

A few minutes later, Ollie Thorley was sent off and most of the game the rival side had to play with one less. At the beginning the lack of the left wing was not felt, because Chris Harris stretched the lead to go to the dressing room 17-0. In the final stage, Wasps came out with greater determination and James Gaskell, Rob Miller and Josh Bassett will turn this great game around until a penalty on the finish kicked by Twelvetrees would take away the illusion of climbing in the Premiership. Matías Alemanno was present at the agonizing Gloucester victory.
