It's often the way Dammit, that teams perform better with 14 instead of 15. No sympathy with Robson if that is what happened, will have to wait and see. After everything that has happened with them, they needed cool heads today, and got the opposite

A mixed performance from Wasps, but in the end a deserved victory. Varndell and Lemi look to be exciting acquisitions on the wing, and it was striking how frequently we looked to go wide. The scrum was appalling though against seven men, and the two centres had unconvincing performances. Good line-out work though from Birkett and Skivington, and the rolling maul really looks like a potent weapon. Most importantly, we got off to a winning start and the players showed good determination and grit to outlast their opponents.

I think he got the wrong idea about "double header"
I need to learn to wake up before I post on here....yes, I was referring to Irish, for a moment forgot we were playing Sarries, not Quins. And hey, we picked up a point!
Very silly of Robson and not what you would expect from a professional player. I'm sure the nerves of the first game and playing in front of such a big crowd contributed to his behavior but no excuse. As a professional you should be psychologically prepared for such event.Because of that Quins deserved to loose.

It was a clear headbutt - everyone around me in the ground saw it. Was good that the ref stood up to the mark and sent him off - like Burger should have been against the Lions.Other than that, not much to be said. Wasps were okay but hard to judge bearing in mind they were against 7 men in the scrum the whole match including a lock, so expected to be dominant in the lineoutBacks looked good - centre partnership looks good - major concern is defending the cross-kick to Lemi
The head butt incident wasn't shown in any real detail on Sky. What I was interested in was did the Quins medical team have the audacity to examine the wound? We wouldn't want any cheating to go on would we!It's not often I support Wasps but against Quins then all opposition gets my support.
A clear head butt what a fool cost Quins a match they should have won and would have if he were still on the pitch. Yes I am a Wasps fan who did have a little sympathy for the players and what they went through now I hope they get relegated! Rugby suffered enough in the summer idiots like this should be banned for as long as Richards!
London Local Derby, Quins v Wasps, Millwall v West Ham, it seems that London is as dangerous as Johannesburg

Difficult to say whether Quins would have beaten us with 15 people on the pitch; the effect of losing someone can make the rest of the team step up and do more, whilst the other team may take things for granted
