London Wasps romp to Roma victory

Tom Varndell scored two of London Wasps eight tries in their 50-16 romp over Roma in the European Challenge Cup.

Varndell scored the first of his two tries on the eight minute mark only for Roma’s Juan Gauthier to score for his side.

Wasps Academy prop Bob Baker scored the London side’s second try before Daniel Leo and Paul Sackey scored for the former European Champions while Roma full-back Paolo Buso was in the sin-bin.

Roma kept themselves in the match through Max Freschi’s boot but when George Skivington and Dominic Waldouck scored tries and then second Varndell and Leo scored their second try each the result was beyond doubt.
