Le­in­ster primed to swat Wasps next

The Guardian - - SPORT -

There is no stop­ping Le­in­ster and they will surely be too pow­er­ful for Wasps when the cham­pi­ons travel to Coven­try next Sun­day. Johnny Sex­ton watched his re­place­ment Ross Byrne give a dom­i­nant dis­play in the 29-13 win over Toulouse, once the bluebloods of Europe who are re­dis­cov­er­ing some of their old princely form. If ever there was an il­lus­tra­tion of English clubs’ fall from grace in Europe it was at the Recre­ation Ground where Bath and Wasps, with three Heineken Cup wins be­tween them, fought out a mean­ing­less game with Bath squeak­ing home 18-16 thanks to a late kick from Rhys Pri­est­land. For Wasps there is some con­so­la­tion in the re­turn of Joe Launch­bury.
