Wasps Edge Out Connacht

19/08/2002. Connacht continued their pre-season preparation with a visit to Adams Park in London yesterday where they were narrowly beaten 33-27 by London Wasps

London Wasps were playing in their first game at Adams Park and in a close game that saw the lead change several times, they ran out 33-27 winners, thanks to two late Kenny Logan penalties.

The sides were tied ten points apiece at the break, Gavin Duffy scoring Connacht’s try with Eric Elwood converting and he also added a penalty. Rising star Ted Robinson (pictured) scored twice in the second half of what was a very useful outing for Steph Nel’s side.
