Dai Young was less than pleased with Wasps’ display despite seeing his side earn a bonus point 40-13 victory against London Welsh on Sunday.

The black and golds’ director of rugby watched on as two early tries from Tom Varndell gave the visitors a 12-5 half-time lead.

The wing completed his hat-trick after the restart and further scores from Ashley Johnson, Sailosi Tagicakibau and Alapati Leiua ensured a comfortable win against their already relegated opponents.

Six tries wasn’t enough to appease Young however, and he was left underwhelmed by Wasps performance.

He said: “I don't think it was a vintage performance from us by any stretch of the imagination but we got five points and we came away with no injuries.

“You have to be pleased with that but we are also aware that performances like today aren't going to win us many games.

“We were on a hiding to nothing here really. If you win by a large margin people expect it. We scored forty points but I still don't think the performance was anywhere near what we'd expect from ourselves.”

Varndell went over for the opening try with just three minutes on the clock, crossing the whitewash in the right corner after good work from Thomas Young and Elliot Daly.

Andy Goode added the extras from the touchline before Welsh lost hooker Koree Britton to the sin-bin.

With Britton off the field Varndell went over again, but just as Wasps looked to pile on the points the hosts hit back through Opeti Fonua midway through the first half.

They reduced the deficit to 12-8 shortly after half-time before Johnson and Varndell went in to ease the visitors’ nerves.

Chris Elder hit back for Welsh on his Premiership debut but Tagicakibau and Leiua added further tries to ensure victory and keeps Wasps in the hunt for a top four finish.

The black and golds lie sixth after winning at the Kassam Stadium ahead of a game against fourth place Exeter at the Ricoh Arena on April 26.

Young said: “Next up we have Exeter, and we all know how well they've been playing, with another good win against Northampton today (Sunday).

“After that we have Leicester Tigers so two massive games on the way that could either cement us in the top six or put us under pressure.

“I don't think we were outstanding in any department today but I'm confident that, with two weeks of good preparation, we will be ready for the Exeter game when it comes around.

“We need to be a lot better than we were today and we know that but we got the job done and now we move on.”
