Match Report: Wasps 34-24 Sale – Wasps earn bonus-point win against Sharks

  • Rob Miller and Ashley Johnson scored braces as Wasps secured a 34-24 bonus-point win over Sale
  • Danny Cipriani also went over for the hosts with Jimmy Gopperth completing the scoring from the tee
  • Bryn Evans (2) and Mikey Haley crossed for the visitors with AJ MacGinty adding nine points from the tee
Wasps scored five tries as they romped to a 34-17 bonus-point victory in the Aviva Premiership at the Ricoh Arena Sunday.

The hosts were dominant in the opening 40 with two Ashley Johnson tries, along with Danny Cipriani going over and the boot of Jimmy Gopperth giving them a 22-3 at half-time.

Bryn Evans’ early second-half try saw the deficit reduced to 12 points.

But two quick Miller tries proved vital in securing Wasps a sixth successive home win, despite Evans and Mike Haley going over for the Sharks. It wasn’t enough for the bonus point though, as Wasps recorded a 34-24 win.
