DAI Young felt Wasps’ 24-10 victory at Sixways was “pretty cruel” on Worcester Warriors as two late tries saw the hosts finish empty handed.

Wasps’ director of rugby reckoned Warriors “deserved a bonus point” from what was a scrappy Aviva Premiership clash.

After falling 10-0 behind, Worcester fought back with a push-over try from Biyi Alo on the stroke of half-time and a Sam Olver penalty on 56 minutes to level the scores at 10-10.

But moments after Olver struck the post with a penalty, Willie Le Roux sprinted down the left to score in the corner.

And with two minutes remaining, Josh Bassett got on the end of Danny Cipriani’s chip to touch down.

Jimmy Gopperth converted both to seal victory, but Young did not believe the score-line reflected the game.

“I always felt we had another gear and would probably do just enough to win the game,” Young said.

“But I think it was pretty cruel for Worcester not to get a bonus point. I thought they deserved a bonus point.

“We knew that Worcester would bounce back from (the defeat to Newcastle Falcons) last week.

“We knew they would be full of physicality, endeavour and energy and would put us under lots of pressure which they did.

“We have got to look at ourselves as well as our accuracy alluded us on many occasions.

“We put ourselves under pressure and handed momentum back to Worcester.

“It wasn’t a great performance from us, but I am pretty pleased to come away with a win because these are games you can lose.”
