WASPS take on Newcastle tonight hoping to give their top-six ambitions a shot in the arm.

They are still smarting from a last-second defeat to Northampton last weekend - the second season in a row Saints have won in Wycombe in the final moments - and Dai Young's men will be desperate to chalk up another away win.

They did win at London Irish in their last away fixture and beating Newcastle, who are ten points below them in the table, would be another landmark result.

Newcastle beat London Irish at Kingston Park, but their proud home record has been dented by defeats to Bath, Harlequins and Gloucester.
