Wasps claimed victory over Gloucester on Sunday in a game dominated by the visitors

It was a great game for the neutral but we are having the rub of the green at the moment.

Wasps director of rugby Dai Young admitted his side were lucky to come out on top in Sunday's Aviva Premiership game against Gloucester.

The hosts retained their unbeaten home record with a 33-29 victory over a dominant Gloucester side.

And, despite the win, Young said his Wasps team did not play well for the majority of the Adams Park clash.

"It was a great game for the neutral but we are having the rub of the green at the moment," he said.

"I'm disappointed at the way we played in the first half as we were extremely pleased to go in at 13-10 ahead. Gloucester should have been a couple of scores in front.

"We didn't play well for most of that game - perhaps for only 20 minutes - and we haven't produced an 80-minute performance all season.

Finished article

"We are far from the finished article and still have a long way to go."

Gloucester director of rugby Nigel Davies agreed with Young and made it clear he believed his side should have claimed the victory.

He said: "We controlled large parts of that match but we didn't take our opportunities, mainly in the first half.

"We made a number of errors and they took their chances, especially when we messed up a scrum to give Christian Wade the opportunity to score. That was the turning point in the match."

Despite the defeat Davies was upbeat adding: "I'm positive about today's performance as we are still in the hunt for the top four.

"We've taken six points from two difficult away matches. We have a good opportunity next Friday night against Worcester to kick on but they are a dogged team and don't give up easily."
