Another poor result keeps Verulamians firmly in the mire at the bottom of Herts Middlesex Division One.

This latest setback came in a 62-14 loss at Wasps FC, their fifth from the opening five league games.

Two tries and a penalty leaked in the opening 15 minutes set the tone and the mood was darkened further by injuries to scrum-half Joe Breeze and our player-coach Sam Perry.

And a youthful Wasps side continued to utilise their superior fitness to stride to a 24-7 lead by half-time.

The one bright spot for Vees was that converted try, scored by Jack Hegarty who outstripped the Wasps defence with a charge down the middle of the pitch.

A brief flourish of early second-half pressure narrowed the gap further as Ollie Askew-Fountain got another converted score but it proved to be the last hurrah as Wasps ran riot after that.

Vees go to UCSOB on Saturday in a huge game at the bottom of the table.
