THE Wasps pack allied to a Man of the Match performance from young fly half Alex Lozowski proved far too lethal a combination for London Irish yesterday.

Wasps’ big guns destroyed Irish in the scrum, shoving them all around the Adams Park pitch.

But their fine work still needed to be exploited and Lozowski did that with 22 individual points.

Wasps coach Stephen Jones said: “The forwards were superb.

“They certainly gave us a wonderful platform. Our set piece was very, very strong and the workrate around the park was top drawer.

“But we had two young half backs out there as well who controlled the field very well so they must take a lot of credit.

“I thought we had a good balance in our game.”

Lozowski was starting only his second game after missing the start of the season with injury.

But with Ruaridh Jackson sidelined for the long-term, Lozowski could be called on more often to support Andy Goode.

Jone said: “Alex was Man of the Match and rightly so.

“He played very, very well. It’s his second game back after injury and it’s great to be able to give him game time and it’s wonderful for us as coaches when he performs as well as that.

“He deserves a lot of credit.

“The forwards gave us a wonderful platform, but you have to make the most of that as wel and I thought he did that.”
