London Wasps are through to the Guinness Premiership Final after a 21-10 victory over Bath in the first Semi Final on Sunday.
The victory was unfortunately marred by the loss of Danny Cipriani who was stretchered off with a 'fracture dislocation' of the ankle, and will be out for 6 months. Wing Tom Voyce also left in an ambulance, with a dislocated shoulder that medical staff were unable to put back in.
The victory has huge significance for Lawrence Dallaglio, who retires at the end of the season and will bring down the curtain on his illustrious career at Twickenham in the final.
The 35-year-old left the pitch to a standing ovation in the 66th minute and will make his last appearance against Leicester in two weeks' time.
It was Dallaglio's Adams Park farewell and an emotional occasion for the former England captain, who has spent his entire 18-year career at Wasps.
The final is set to be a big day for all, with Wasps having some to do some reshuffling after injuries that for them, hopefully won't have too big a toll on their title aspirations.
