Wasps are keeping their top six expectations alive, but Dan Robson is calling for “ consistency ” from referees
Wasps fight back to beat Worcester to keep their top six hopes alive – but Dan Robson calls for ‘consistency’ from referees after Ben Morris was fired
- Ben Morris was sent off for a ‘dangerous hit to head’ on center Ollie Lawrence
- Tommy Taylor’s attempt sealed the victory for Wasps, pushing them to eighth place
- Worcester flanker Sam Lewis was sent to the sin bin seven minutes before time
Dan Robson demanded more consistency from the referees over close red card calls after the 14-member Wasps fight back to keep their top-six expectations alive.
The England scrum half claimed that Ben Morris was unlucky enough to be fired because referee Ian Tempest decided it was a dangerous hit to the head on center Ollie Lawrence twenty minutes before the end.
Hooker’s Tommy Taylor attempt five minutes later sealed the win, placing Wasps in eighth place on the Premiership table with three games to go.

They still have their sights set on finishing in the top six, but scrum half Robson said: ‘I’ve seen yellow and red cards for next to nothing. The frustrating thing for all players is to get consistency.
‘Charlie Ewels’ last night in Bath’s match with Sale was a very similar one and he gets a yellow, but Ben gets a red for his. We all watch it on the big screen and go ‘pick a song from the hat!’ All we want is consistency and if we get that, we’ll be fine. ‘
Warriors had sent Sam Lewis to the scapegoat seven minutes before the end for helping to collapse a scrum and the visitors had to endure another painful defeat.
