Ruaridh Jackson crosses for his try and Wasps second

This was only the second meeting between these two clubs, the first meeting was only last season.
Wasps took a surprising early lead when a long miss pass from Ruaridh Jackson found the arms of Nathan Hughes who powered over, using the wet surface to slide in.
1 minute later, Ruaridh Jackson was crossing the whitewash himself. Quade Cooper cleared the ball long; straight into the arms of the Scottish fly half who chipped into open space. The ball popped up into Joe Simpson’s arms and then he offloaded to James Gaskell who in turn offloaded to Ruaridh Jackson who scampered in.
Jonathan Palissie struck two penalties for Toulon, but they were cancelled out by Jackson and the long boot of outside-centre, Elliot Daly.
HALF TIME WASPS 20 – 6 TOULON
When Levan Chilachava was clobbered by Ashley Johnson, Charles Puitau, who has been ever present for Wasps this season, burst through the Toulon defence and offloaded to Frank Halai who finished off a superb try.
Closing into the last 10 minutes, the Wasps pack heaved the ball over the line and it was Nathan Hughes’ second which snatched the bonus point.
Toulon were stung by Wasps and this time, it might not be as easy to pull the sting out…
FULL TIME WASPS 32 – TOULON 6
