Wasps lock admits 'strange' Sharks return
KEARNAN Myall says Wasps were unlucky to meet Danny Cipriani on a good day last Friday.
The former Sale Sharks lock made his official Wasps debut at the Salford City Stadium on a night when former Wasp Cipriani scored 21 individual points.
The fly half also set up the try for Mark Cueto as Sharks won 26-22.
Myall said: “We all know about Danny Cipriani. He can be erratic. On his day he’s excellent but sometimes he loses his head and goes a bit off script. Unfortunately for us he played extremely well and changed the game for Sale.”
Before Friday, Myall’s last Premiership game was for Sale in their 21-20 win over Wasps at the same venue on the last day of last season.
He said: “It was a strange feeling going back to a stadium that I’ve played at a lot.
“A lot of the squad is the same so I know a lot of them very well, so it was strange running out there in Wasps colours, particularly as the last time I played there was for Sale against Wasps. It was complete turnaround.
“I really enjoyed the experience of playing against my old teammates, but that was overshadowed by the result.
"I thought we were going to snatch it, but we put ourselves under so much pressure during the game that in all honesty we didn’t deserve to win it.
"We fought back strongly at the end and put ourselves in position where we could have won it, but there is so much to work on. We shouldn’t even be in positions like that.
"There were a lot of individual errors and just playing in the wrong areas. Things we’re doing really well in training we’re not doing in the game at the moment.
"They’re things that can be fixed fairly easily, and provided we do that we should be ready to get that first win this weekend."
Wasps host Worcester in their first Adams Park return of the season.
