Relieved: Dai Young

Wasps boss Dai Young was pleased as well as relieved after his side came from behind to edge Worcester Warriors on Saturday.

Having suffered several near misses in recent weeks, to win the match with a lat-minute converted try from Jake Cooper-Woolley felt somewhat refreshing, though Wasps were the second-best team on the day.

"I'm really pleased we found a way to win because we were probably out of that game with five minutes to go," Young told the Bucks Free Press of the 13-11 triumph.

"I don't think we deserved to win, but sometimes the result is more important than the performance and that was one of them.

"If you look the last month, the Warriors have been that close three or four times.

"They could have had three or four wins so we just really pleased to have got the result."

The scoreline condemned Worcester to yet another defeat - their 17th of the Premiership season - and left them still searching a maiden league win.

"You've got to feel for them. We've been where they are so we know what they're going through," added Young.

"If you go all the way back to the start of the season it went against us, but there will be times when it goes against you and times when it goes for you.

"We feel for Worcester because they were probably the better team and deserved to win, but we've had that done to us two or three times this season so we know how they feel."
