Pace wins it after Wasps fall short in power struggle
DAI Young says the backs made up for deficiencies in the forwards as Wasps beat London Welsh 29-19 at Adams Park.
Wingers Christian Wade and Tom Varndell shared the four tries and their impact was the difference between the sides.
Young said: “I thought the wingers were the major difference between the two teams. I thought Christian Wade was outstanding, but I thought Tom Varndell took his tries really well too.
“When you’ve got two major threats like that out wide they’ll punish any team if you give them an opportunity.”
However, Wasps needed the sharpest tools to be twinkle in the floodlights after a below-par performance from the pack.
Young said: “We put ourselves under maximum pressure. We’ve come away with maximum points so we’ve got to be pleased with that, but there are still lots of things to work on and lots of things that I wasn’t pleased with.
“I thought we struggled up front, especially in the second half. We got driven over by a driving line-out and I thought we struggled in the scrum, which was quite surprising.
“We have to improve.”
Wasps go to Saracens on Sunday.
