A little Danny Cipriani magic set up a glorious coast-to-coast try from Wasps

Ex-Leinster man Jimmy Gopperth finished off under the posts after Wasps found a very non-textbook way off their own five-metre line.

WASPS HAVE A 100% record four games in to the new Premiership campaign, and it’s down in no small part to the audacity of Danny Cipriani (from the 30 second mark below).

With his pack penned back onto their five-metre line away to Northampton on Saturday, Cipriani opted for the most unconventional means of escaping his 22; grubbering beyond the advancing defence.

He then beat George North in a race for the bouncing ball before his offload left miles of space for Jimmy Gopperth to romp home and set Wasps on the way to a 15 – 20 win.
