Wasps hopeful of a reduced error-count
INDIVIDUAL errors have held Wasps back this season, but Dai Young hopes two wins in Europe will have softened the hands ahead of their return to the Aviva Premiership, against Leicester on Sunday.
He said: “In the first couple of games we wanted to start well and things didn’t go to plan for us and then everybody feels a little more edgy and is snapping at that pass.
“They want to do well and we all get disappointed when we lose because we’re all passionate about it.
“But no one wants it more than the players and no one puts in more work. When things don’t go well they really feel it and carry it into the next game because they’re only human. Sometimes you can be trying a little bit too hard."
A clutch of injuries to senior players hasn't helped matters, with inexperienced replacements challenged to keep a steady head amidst growing pressure.
However, Young hopes two Amlin Challenge Cup victories goes a long way to easing the tension.
He said: "There are a couple of players still getting used to playing at this level but wins will always bring that little bit of confidence and you’d like to think the players are bit more settled.”
