Late try lifts Wasps and breaks Toulouse hearts

David Lemi snatched a try in the closing stages handing Wasps a 21-16 victory over Toulouse at Adams Park in the Heineken Cup.

Toulouse lost Florian Fritz with a red card and London Wasps lost Serge Betsen with a yellow in the final quarter of the match which set up a thrilling end to the match.

The 27-year-old Fritz was red-carded by Irish referee Alain Rolland for a dangerous
tackle on Wasps winger Tom Varndell but as he left the field he was caught on
camera raising his middle finger to the crowd which could land him in further trouble.

Toulouse will play their Heineken Cup quarter final away to Biarritz while London Wasps can progress to the Challenge Cup.
