  1. Goodbye

    I'm afraid that's all we have time for today.

    It was another afternoon packed full of tries and fast and furious action and thoroughly enjoyable!

    Thank you for joining us. Until next time, goodbye.

    Thomas Young
  2. Full-time

    Wasps 42-10 Harlequins

    Six wins in a row now for Wasps to go with their six tries today.

    The last time a Wasps side did that was eight years ago when they were crowned champions.

  3. Try (Macken, con Lozowski)

    Wasps 42-10 Harlequins

    The cherry on teh cake I think is what this is called.

    With the clock dead, Wasps opt to take a penalty scrum rather than kick it out and Brendan Macken hits an excellent line to cross.

    Alex Lozowski keeps up the hosts 100% kicking record for today.

  4. Wasps 35-10 Harlequins

    Not only superb in attack, Christian Wade shows he can do it in defence.

    Harlequins wing Charlie Walker initially rounds Wade, but he recovers to make a sublime covering tackle and stop his opposite number from touching down in goal. 

  5. Wasps 35-10 Harlequins

    Harlequins keeping the ball well at the moment, recycling the ball quickly, but they're struggling to break down the wall of black and gold.

    Conor O'Shea's side have simply been second best today. 

    Marland Yarde's face says a lot...

  6. Try (S Piutau, con Gopperth)

    Wasps 35-10 Harlequins

    Wasps turning on the style now.

    A superb break and off load by Frank Halai puts in Siale Piutau but he still has some work to do from 22 metres out the Tongan centre- he shows superb footwork and strength to cross though.

    They really are a superb side in full flow Wasps, and Jimmy Gopperth is five from five with another conversion.

  7. Full-time

    Leicester 47-20 London Irish

    Leicester's dominant first-half and four tries before the break meant that the damage was done for bottom of the table London Irish. 

    In fairness the visitors showed a great deal of character and resolve to continue playing until the final whistle but they were overpowered by the home team and struggled to stem Leicester's attacking threats. 

  8. Try (Fenby, missed con Geraghty)

    Leicester 47-20 London Irish

    Ciaran Hearn shows what he can do when he's given a spot of space and Andrew Fenby is on his shoulder to ensure that Irish score the final points of the day. 

    Shane Geraghty converts however it puts a gloss on what has been a tough day at the Premiership office for London Irish.  

  9. Try (Young, con Gopperth)

    Wasps 28-10 Harlequins

    Slick try this from Wasps and Dai Young's son Tom is at the end of it.

    That's the bonus point and with Jimmy Gopperth making it four from four, this game is pretty much done you would think.

  10. Try review (Wasps)

    It looks as if Tom Young as got the try bonus point but we're just checking for an earlier knock on...

  11. Wasps 21-10 Harlequins

    It's been all Wasps since that Harlequins try.

    Moving from their cruising gear of third up into fourth, they've just found an extra intensity in their play. They're still looking for that fourth bonus point try.

  12. Try (Trayfoot, con Geraghty)

    Leicester 47-15 London Irish

    London Irish catch Leicester napping and this try is straight off the training paddock. 

    The ball is whipped off the top of the line-out and Shane Geraghty pops an inside ball to Joe Trayfoot. Geraghty adds the conversion and Irish are showing good character late on in this match. 

  13. Get involved at #bbcrugby

    Leicester 47-8 London Irish

  14. Try (Walker, missed con Botica)

    Wasps 21-10 Harlequins

    The trick works again!

    Harlequins forwards go close with a couple of barraging drives, but eventually the spin it from right to left where Charlie Walker dives over.

    Ben Botica misses the conversion but a bit of hope for Quins.

  15. Try (Thompstone, con Bell)

    Leicester 47-8 London Irish

    London Irish's defence is shaky... to say the least! 

    Adam Thomsptone takes full advantage as he surges through and turns on the pace. 

    This is getting a little ugly now as Tommy Bell adds the conversion and Leicester have the half-century in sight.

  16. Wasps 21-5 Harlequins

    The opening stages of the second-half have a very similar feeling to the start of game with errors on top from both sides.

    Harlequins have had most of the ball but neither side has had a whiff of the try line since the break.

    Last time I said it was a tad dull, we had four tries...

  17. Try (de Villiers, con Burns)

    Leicester 40-8 London Irish

    Next it's time for Jean de Villiers to open his try-scoring account for Leicester. 

    Once again it's quick handling and crisp distribution from Freddie Burns that sets up de Villiers for the score. The South African produces a cheeky step and Burns duly adds the conversion. 

  18. Wasps 21-5 Harlequins

    Harlequins attacking

    Harlequins start the half with some intent, challenging the Wasps line.

    They earn themselves a 5m line-out but it is wasted at the back and allows the hosts to clear.

  19. Kick-off

    Wasps 21-5 Harlequins

    Jimmy Gopperth gets proceedings back underway in a sunny, but chilly, Coventry.

    Is there a way back into this match for Harlequins?
