Christian Wade scores easy try after Dave Kearney bouncing ball blunder

Christian Wade scores easy try after Dave Kearney bouncing ball blunder

Wasps blew away a flat looking Leinster in Dublin on Sunday, as the European Champions Cup got underway. The 33-6 victory was kicked off by Christian Wade’s poacher try, after Dave Kearney made an awful mess of a fairly innocuous looking box kick by scrumhalf Joe Simpson.

Wasps went into the break with a ten point lead following the converted try, as the unpredictable bounce of the rugby ball cruely bamboozled Kearney for Wade to pounce.

While Kearney made an awful mess of it, he’s certainly not the first to be done by the bounce of the rugby ball. Could he have done better? It looks as though he wasn’t close enough to get it on the full, so apart from maybe being a bit casual, perhaps it was just one of those things that can be put down to really bad luck? The look on his face said it all.

A reminder that all France based games were postponed due to the awful events in Paris.

    Funny how excited Dallaglio gets talking about Wasps! Hard not to feel sympathy for Kearney here. Anyone who claims they've never made a complete arse of themselves in exactly the same way as he did here is lying... Credit to Wade though. He covered a lot of ground very fast to take advantage.

    It borders on criminal doesn't it? I think Simpson could almost build a litigation case for loss of potential earnings he'd have made from sponsorship and endorsements that could come from playing more with England. Eminently clear to anyone with a brain that he's the most exciting scrumhalf at England's disposal and has been for some time.

    As a Saints fan it pleases me to see Leinster on the bad end of a score like this :)

    Imagine if every time Dickson and Wigglesworth got a cap, they instead chose to give it to Simpson. Imagine what this guy could have made of an England career. There's still time, he's only 27. Please let's not waste the second half of his career like the first half.
