Dai Young has called on his boys to play with a lot more confidence in the remaining five games of the Aviva Premiership season after the London Wasps just squeezed past the Worcester Warriors last weekend.
The struggling Worcester side looked to have done enough to secure their first win in the Aviva Premiership in the last twelve months having managed to a lead of 11-6 with just a few minutes remaining on the clock.
But things were to turn for the worse for the relegation favorites as a try from former Warriors player Andy Goode secured a 13-11 win for the Wasps.
And Dai Young, the club’s Director of Rugby was the first to admit that his side didn’t deserve to go away with all points from the match and mentioned that the Warriors deserved something from it. But he added that is how rugby is played and in the end, it is the result that mattered and not the performance.
But he was pleased at the effort shown by the London Wasps players to fight till the end and secure a tight victory that could be monumental in shaping their fate later on in the season when the European places are confirmed.
Young mentioned that he does feel sorry for the opposition, who could have had three or victories but for narrow losses they suffered. But in the end, it’s the number on the ‘win’ column that counts and that doesn’t make good reading for the Worcester side.
The London Wasps, on the other hand, did well to get the victory in the end. He mentioned that the players were anxious to see the game over the line and he has told the players that they can now play with a lot of confidence and end the season on a high.
