I’m sure Pat [Lam] will be saying the same to his team. Like ourselves, Bristol will have been frustrated with their result last weekend up at Newcastle, so we have to be ready to come out of the blocks firing and meet the challenge they throw down head on. ”Captain Jack Yeandle returns at hooker for the visitors with Jack Nowell on the wing, while Toby Fricker returns from injury for the Bears with Ellis Genge, Harry Randall and Charles Piutau back in the fold.

Hastings misses a big conversion though meaning Wasps remain 6 behind. 27-2116:49Bobby BridgeTry yes or no? Had about our 500th replay here and the result's no clearer16:47KEY EVENTTRY GLOUCESTER??? Freddie Clarke looked like he was over but he might've dotted it short. Tense here. 16:46Bobby BridgeAttendanceIt's a near full-house here, 11, 124 tickets sold according to the announcer. 22-2116:45Bobby BridgeAnother penaltyIt'll take a huge effort here, Wasps concede another maul penalty and the ball will surely be pumped into the corner by Gloucester. McDonald's down with cramp. 22-2116:43Bobby Bridge10 mins to goPenalty Gloucester and Wasps are really up against it.
Twelvetrees is on for Mark Atkinson. 15-21 16:34Bobby BridgeWasps replacementElliot Millar-Mills is on for Robin Hislop, an energetic 63-minute shift from Bomber. 15-2116:33Bobby BridgeHome favourite onVal Rapava-Ruskin is on, and Jamal Ford-Harrison and Santiago Socino make it an all-new Gloucester front-row. 15-2116:32Bobby BridgePenalty GloucesterIt was a nice break off the lineout from Frost but Wasps were penalised at the breakdown and play's back in their half. 15-2116:31Bobby BridgePenalty WaspsWasps finally have chance to get back in enemy territory, Tom Willis was all over that and Atkinson takes play up to just outside the home 22.

Click HERE. Charlie Atkinson of Wasps17:47Bobby BridgeLee Blackett I walk away gutted, disappointed, there was plenty to get excited about and look how we played. I though first half we were really good, I even really liked the last 10 minutes, the way we fought and stayed in it with 13 men and gave ourselves an opportunity to go and win it right at the death, is a credit to everyone because it looked like we were going to walk away with nothing which you could've never imagined at halftime17:41Bobby BridgeLee BlackettIf you bought a ticket on one end of the field you got your money's worth, I'd probably look at that period and look at how we can be better.
27-2116:55Bobby BridgeGloucester ballThey have it in their own 22. 27-2116:54Bobby BridgeCrunch timeIt sounds obvious but Wasps need to stop Gloucester here. They've won the scrum and Willis is back on, behind us Blackett thought it should've been more with a side-entry. The teams pack down, if Wasps can't get something here it's almost certainly game over. 22-2116:52Bobby BridgeWasps still at 13Tom Willis and Alo remain sat on the bench and Gloucester have yet another 10m lineout. 27-2116:51Bobby Bridge5 minutes to goGloucester clear it and Crossdale wins the high ball under huge pressure but it's turned over on the halfway line. 27-2116:50Bobby BridgeTRY GLOUCESTER!!! It's good, Clarke gets the score after Wasps just ran out of numbers to put dominant hits in.
Gloucester Rugby v Wasps LIVE: Reaction from Kingsholm thrillerIt's game day! On a super, if not a little sombre Saturday, rugby roared on while paying its respects to the late Queen Elizabeth II. Harlequins, London Irish, Exeter Chiefs and Bristol Bears all started their seasons with wins at Newcastle Falcons, Worcester Warriors, Leicester Tigers and Bath's expense. There's two more games this afternoon as Sale Sharks host Northampton Saints, and Gloucester welcome Wasps.
22-2116:43KEY EVENTWasps down to 13It's another yellow card, this time for Biyi Alo. Mills is on for Odendaal, who hasn't had any ball this period after a sparkling first half. Wasps did have chance to hit back immediately but butcher the lineout and it's a Gloucester scrum. Kibirige's been sacrificed for Ryan to come back and scrummage. 22-21 16:40KEY EVENTPENALTY TRY GLOUCESTERNot too much analysis need for that one, the maul peeled left and left and it's Gloucester's second penalty try against Wasps in the Coventry era.

Dangerous this. 15-2116:37Bobby BridgeWasps possessionThey're finally building phases inside Gloucester territory, a nice offload from Spink free Frost and Wasps looked threatening, but the ball hit the ground off a home hand it resets to a Wasps scrum, 30m from the Gloucester line on the left-15m line. Nice position this, if they can get clean ball. 15-2116:35Bobby BridgeBig scrumWasps have a scrum 30m from their own line in the centre of the field but this is a big moment for Millar-Mills, who's filling in at loosehead.
