Heineken Cup final: Leicester 9-25 Wasps
Twickenham, 19 May, 2007



Leicester 9-25 Wasps

ALL THE ACTION (times in BST)

By Charlie Henderson

  • Don't forget to have your say on the match on the 606 messageboards.

    1627: Lawrence Dallaglio is the last man up with Alex King and the pair lift the Heineken Cup after a remarkable defensive performance. Even Shaun Edwards is smiling!

    1626: Here come Wasps, led by Raphael Ibanez, who has an infectious smile. If that Gallic grin came in French colours it wouldn't bode well for British rugby. As it is, the game this side of Le Manche looks in pretty good shape this afternoon.

    1625: Leicester's disconsolate players troop across the stage picking up their medals. They are not used to doing that first this season, normally they come up second. Pat Howard looks on from afar. Last weekend's win over Gloucester was his big goodbye after all.

    1624: The stage has been built and the presentation party is in place.

    "We've not been a consistent team this year, but on our day we're awesome."
    Wasps flanker Joe Worsley

    1622: Fraser Waters is given a glass vase for being man of the match. He gives it straight back. He doesn't want to break it in the post-match on-pitch celebrations.

    "How could the Tigers become so complacent with so much to loose."
    Andy in Leicester via text on 81111

    "Any chance of less pro-Wasps bias from 'analyst' Matt Dawson?"
    Natalie in Cambridge via text on 81111

    "The defensive display won Wasps the game. It gave Leicester no option but to try tricks they had not practised."
    BBC Five Live analyst Matt Dawson

    1619: For Leicester coach Pat Howard it is a time for quiet reflection as he troops round his players offering a handshake here and there. Not the way the Australian wanted to bow out, but it has been an excellent season for the club picking up two titles after five seasons without a trophy.

    1618: FULL-TIME Leicester 9-25 Wasps
    A second Heineken Cup victory for Wasps is confirmed as Alan Lewis blows the final whistle. The Wasps bench floods the field in celebration. That means they have won their last six finals at Twickenham.

    1617: James Haskell is told he is "acting the clown" as he concedes a penalty. One last chance for Leicester to bag a try. They are unlikely to.

    1616: Lawrence Dallaglio, Ian McGeechan and Shaun Edwards embrace on the touchline. This has been a tactical triumph for the club's brain trust.

    1615: Times ticking down and Leicester do not look capable of even picking up a consolation. Shaun Edwards is back fro whatever he was up to in the bowels of the ground.

    1614: Wasps coach Shaun Edwards has done a Jose Mourinho. Close to the moment of triumph and he has disappeared down the tunnel. Hugs for scrum-half Eoin Reddan from his team-mates as he comes off.

    1613: A wonderful couple of steps by Dan Hipkiss in his own 22 as he looks to spark something from deep, but tackler number three, Joe Worsley, snares his man and Leicester remain locked in the wrong half of the pitch.

    1612: Wasps are ringing the changes and there is a celebratory feel to their bench as Fraser Waters and Raphael Ibanez come off.

    1611: Leicester are running out of poise and puff. That Treble was a game too far. Alesana Tuilagi is bundled into touch by three black tacklers. Wasps have been quite sensational in their commitment to the cause.

    1609: Leicester string possession together for five phases before a sloppy forward pass from Seru Rabeni. That sums up their day. No way through this Wasps defence has resulted in too many unforced errors.

    1608: That was Alex King's last contribution. He is replaced by Mark van Gisbergen with his team in the driving seat. Wasps are 16 points clear, there are seven minutes left.

    1607: PENALTY Leicester 9-25 Wasps
    Alex King had a horrible first half but has been spot on in the second 40. From tight to the right touchline he slots what should be the killer blow.

    1606: Just 10 minutes left and Wasps are camped on the Leicester line. This could be it. A penalty for Wasps.

    1605: Just when Leicester need to do the basics they cock it right up. A scrum against the head, James Haskell picks up from the base and is on the charge. He is hauled down short by Ian Humphreys, but Wasps maintain possession and this is do or die for Leicester in defence.

    1604: There is no let up in this game. Alesana Tuilagi is on the charge down the left flank. Committed defence with Danny Cipriani getting the first tackle in before support comes piling in.

    1603: A clearing Leicester kick relieves the pressure, but Wasps come back with interest, first through Tom Rees and then Alex King's boot.

    1602: Up to six phases, make that seven, no eight. Relentless. One more score could clinch this for them. They finally cough up the ball on the edge of the 22.

    1601: Wasps are rampant. From that line-out they have made impressive progress over halfway into Leicester territory.

    1600: What a waste. George Chuter's throw is wonky and a half. Replacement lock Dan Leo is in the blood bin which means Joe Ward is on. That's two hookers in the pack.

    1559: Wasps keep ball in hand on the left flank, but keep it in hand too long in the tackle. Leicester fire to touch with the penalty.

    1557: Danny Cipriani's kick is straight to Alesana Tuilagi. He crunches through an attempted tackle from Alex King and creates some momentum. Geordan Murphy breaks, but his inside reverse pass to Ollie Smith is knocked on. More frustration for the Tigers and their out-going coach Pat Howard. It is just not coming off today.

    1556: The official attendance comes through. At 81,076, as expected, it is a new world record for a game of club rugby.

    1555: Andy Goode is hauled off to be replaced by Ian Humphreys. Stats pop up and Wasps have made 71 tackles to Leicester 41.

    "Class from Tom Rees and his fellow back-row. The defence round the fringes was superb."
    BBC Five Live analyst Matt Dawson

    1553: Leicester look to meander a way towards the line before spreading it to Martin Corry at first receiver. Still there is no way through. Wasps snaffle the ball and clear. Remarkable defence.

    1551: Phil Vickery is claiming he was gouged at the scrum under the posts at the Wasps end. It is reset.

    1550: Another crooked feed at the scrum from Eoin Reddan and he is walking a fine line with referee Alan Lewis. The Irishman gets a lecture and should be on a last warning.

    1549: Leicester's period of pressure comes to an end when Frank Murphy's inside pass to the charging Alesana Tuilagi is called forward. Tuilagi shakes his head in frustration. Last week it went his way. This week it certainly isn't... at the moment.

    1548: A crooked Wasps feed at the scrum and Leicester tap and go through Martin Corry. The men in black stand firm in defence.

    1547: Alesana Tuilagi comes in at stand-off but he floats a high pass over Geordan Murphy on the wing. The mistake brings cheers from Wasps fans. They can sense victory.

    1545: Martin Corry is barking instructions at his team. There's an element of desperation in his face, which is tinged with a reddish hue from that cut that always opens up on the bridge of his nose.

    1544: Leicester need to find something, and fast. That is nine unanswered points this half and a 13-point deficit.

    1543: DROP GOAL Leicester 9-22 Wasps
    Wasps go to the back of the line-out where Phil Vickery gathers and releases Tom Voyce on the charge. He works good position and the platform is laid for Alex King to land the drop goal.

    1542: Referee Alan Lewis has given Leicester skipper Martin Corry a final warning. Any more needless infringements and a Tiger could be going to the bin. Alex King drills a penalty down the line for his forwards to launch a salvo on the Leicester line.

    1541: Frank Murphy is through the Wasps line but is hauled back for an offside.

    1540: A good tackle from Tom Voyce breaks Leicester's momentum and allows Wasps to get their hands on the ball inside their own half.

    1539: Smiles from Lawrence Dallaglio on the bench. His job is done, but there is another 30 minutes for his Wasps team-mates to navigate out there.

    1538: A second change for Leicester with Ollie Smith replacing Daryl Gibson in the centres. Louis Deacon returns in place of Leo Cullen, so that makes Smith's arrival the first proper change. And Wasps warhorse Lawrence Dallaglio goes off to be replaced by James Haskell.

    1536: PENALTY Leicester 9-19 Wasps
    Talking back at the referee cost Leicester an extra 10 metres and Alex King slots the penalty from 35 metres. The radar's working in the second half for the veteran fly-half. Wasps now have daylight on the scoreboard.

    1535: A knock-on in midfield by the Tigers and here come Wasps. The red-booted Paul Sackey takes it forward and earns a penalty as Alesana Tuilagi infringes in the tackle.

    1534: Shane Jennings wins ball at the tail of the line-out of Wasps ball to get Leicester on the front foot.

    1532: Pat Howard looks anxious as he prowls around the touchline. How can he get his side through this Wasps defence? Leo Cullen on for Louis Deacon in the second row may be the ticket as the first change of the game is made.

    1531: What a let off for Wasps. A poor kick from Andy Goode from a pretty kickable position. Right-footed from the left-hand side, he pushes it wide.

    1530: That has clearly fired Leicester up. They look to batter a way through the Wasps defence and win a scrum. Wow! What a shove. Wasps are back-pedalling in the scrum. Penalty for Leicester as Wasps pop up.

    1528: PENALTY Leicester 9-16 Wasps
    Finally Alex King lands some points off the boot from straight in front of the posts.

    1527: Up and under one way and then back the other. Alesana Tuilagi holds on too long in the tackle as he gathers the second from Alex King which gives the Wasps 10 a chance to add three points. He needs to slot this one for his own confidence if nothing less.

    1526: The action resumes.

    "That was absolutely enthralling. Not having the ball has rattled Leicester and it was naive of them to be caught at the front of the line-out, not once, but twice. Congratulations to Wasps, but what have they got left in the locker?"
    BBC Five Live analyst Matt Dawson

    1515: HALF-TIME Leicester 9-13 Wasps
    The whistle comes with Wasps in the ascendancy, driving deep into Leicester territory. But they go in boasting only a four-point advantage despite their heroics.

    1513: PENALTY Leicester 9-13 Wasps
    No sooner said than Raphael Ibanez gives Andy Goode a chance to cut the deficit with an infringement in the close and the Leicester man is on target to maintain his 100% record with the boot. What Alex King and Wasps would do for that?

    1512: Not with the Wasps defence playing like that again. Ian McGeechan and Shaun Edwards have got the men in black bang on for this one.

    1511: Can Leicester get something back before the break?

    1509: TRY Leicester 6-13 Wasps
    Same tactic, same result. This time Simon Shaw peels to the front of the line-out to receive a short, flat pass from Raphael Ibanez and the Frenchman goes over in the corner after gathering the return pass from Shaw. Leicester caught napping again. Alex King's conversion hits the woodwork again.

    1508: Wasps go for the corner.

    1507: Not much as Leicester soon escape and Alesana Tuilagi has ball in hand after a wonderful miss pass from Ben Kay. The next thing the giant Samoan has to cope with is three Wasps all over him - Raphael Ibanez, Paul Sackey and Joe Worsley. Tuilagi holds on and it is a Wasps penalty.

    1506: What can Wasps do on the front foot as they chase a deep Alex King kick?

    1505: Huge defence from Wasps. Every tackle they go into they are pushing back their man. Ferocious and fearsome and they earn their reward for it when Leicester knock-on.

    1504: Here come Leicester again though.

    1503: Wasps relieve the pressure with a solid scrum in which Tom French earns a penalty as Julian White pops out of the front row. French gets plenty of pats on the back for that effort. Alex King kicks clear.

    1502: Leicester go for the line-out option again. After winning the ball Ben Kay is through on the line but a sensational tackle from Lawrence Dallaglio in the corner and Kay spills the ball.

    1501: Ben Kay gathers but Wasps pile in and drive Leicester back. Away from the action England skipper past and present Martin Corry and Phil Vickery are swinging punches at each other. The decision goes against Vickery and Wasps.

    1500: A penalty for Leicester and Andy Goode arrows a kick down the line. That pressure they have been exerting could soon tell.

    1459: Wasps are being pushed back as Leicester find their groove.

    1458: Andy Goode opts for the cross-field kick again, this time on halfway. Seru Rabeni gathers on the full but when he looks to release Geordan Murphy with an inside pass Tom Voyce nails man and ball.

    1456: Fraser Waters is engulfed by Leicester players as he runs out of space on the left touchline in his own half. They swarm all over the centre and bundle him into touch. Can Tigers swarm? That's supposed to be what Wasps do.

    1455: Tensions over flow as a scrum breaks up and the two packs are going head-to-head. Nothing serious or dirty. A bit of pointing and vein popping anger.

    "It's frantic. The fringes are busy and the contact is very, very hard. Not just in the front five, but also in the backs. They are throwing themselves around and it is all very condensed. One break, one opportunity and someone will score under the sticks soon."
    BBC Five Live analyst Matt Dawson

    1453: Seru Rabeni steps in to the stand-off position to help give Leicester some momentum in their own half. He can't. A knock-on gifts possession back to Wasps.

    1451: Oh dear. Alex King has not put his kicking boots on today. That is a third miss for the Wasps 10 as his effort from distance falls just short. Wasps would be 10 points clear but for those three misses.

    1450: Not the best 60 seconds of Martin Corry's Leicester career. He is lectured by referee Alan Lewis for not rolling away from the ball, with Lawrence Dallaglio throwing in his tuppence worth as well. Penalty for Wasps.

    1449: Martin Corry spills a deep Danny Cipriani kick. Nerves can affect even the most experienced performers. Leicester recover to touch down under their own posts for a 22 drop out.

    1448: PENALTY Leicester 6-8 Wasps
    Blind folly from Fraser Waters. A blocking run at the kick-off to protect Joe Worsley results in a penalty in front of the posts. No worries for Andy Goode.

    1445: TRY Leicester 3-8 Wasps
    A sneaky line-out on the Tigers 22 with Raphael Ibanez giving a low pass for the on-rushing Eoin Reddan who darts in for a try in the corner. Is that the same corner Rob Howley went over in against Toulouse in 2004? Alex King pulls his conversion attempt across the posts.

    1444: Seru Rabeni, that other big Leicester winger, is snared on the other side of the park by Tom Voyce.

    1443: The ball is sent out to the backs now and from inside his own half Andy Goode lines up a cross-field kick. The target is Alesana Tuilagi. A surge of excitement in the crowd but after catching the ball on the bounce he knocks on as he is tackled low by Paul Sackey.

    1442: Wasps hooker Raphael Ibanez does not find his jumpers at the line-out and it is Leicester ball. The forwards show some grunt to create a platform.

    1441: Alex King fails to hit the target, just. From wide on the left King's effort hits the left upright, but Wasps maintain the pressure and earn another attacking line-out.

    1440: Frank Murphy is hassled and harried as he digs out the ball and driven backwards by Tom French and Eoin Reddan. The Irishman holds on too long and concedes a penalty.

    1439: PENALTY Leicester 3-3 Wasps
    Simple for Andy Goode. He was slap, bang in front of the posts.

    1438: Now a penalty for Leicester with Lawrence Dallaglio pinged for being on the wrong side.

    1437: Alex King is in the wars now after failing to line up Lewis Moody properly in the tackle. The bald fly half, who is the eight player from an English club to make 50 Heineken Cup appearances today, is soon back on his feet.

    1436: PENALTY Leicester 0-3 Wasps
    Alex King slots the kick this time. A solid start from Wasps, but Leicester need not panic. Don't forget, last weekend they trailed Gloucester in the early stages.

    1435: The forwards do the job for Wasps at the line-out and Lawrence Dallaglio takes it further forward. It's a solid start and they earn a penalty a second penalty.

    1434: Wasps turn down a long-ish pot at goal and Alex King spears a penalty down the touchline for an attacking line-out instead.

    1432: The first big hit of the day and guess who was on the receiving end? Wasps centre Josh Lewsey lines up Leicester scrum-half Frank Murphy and clatters him good and proper.

    1431: The smoke from the pre-match fireworks has cleared and Leicester stand-off Andy Goode gets the game going.


    Here are the two teams again...

    Leicester: Geordan Murphy, Seru Rabeni, Dan Hipkiss, Daryl Gibson, Alesana Tuilagi, Andy Goode, Frank Murphy, Marcos Ayerza, George Chuter, Julian White, Louis Deacon, Ben Kay, Lewis Moody, Shane Jennings, Martin Corry (capt).

    Wasps: Dan Cipriani, Paul Sackey, Fraser Waters, Josh Lewsey, Tom Voyce, Alex King, Eoin Reddan, Tom French, Raphael Ibanez, Phil Vickery, Simon Shaw, Tom Palmer, Joe Worsley, Tom Rees, Lawrence Dallaglio (capt).


    1429: What a reception. They peel past the trophy on a pitchside plinth. Who will be holding that come the final whistle? Leicester skipper Martin Corry or Wasps captain Lawrence Dallaglio? Sit back and enjoy.

    1428: The stadium's packed and here come the two teams.

    "Wasps have to stay right in touch the whole way through, picking up drop goals and penalties. If they can match Leicester in the loose then they've got a chance. The Tigers will be physical and will come out hard and strong. If Wasps hold out that first 20 or 30 minutes they might eat into any Leicester tiredness."
    Matt Dawson, BBC Five Live analyst

    "The drummers have finished, thank god. It's time for a spot of 'Ruby' by the Kaiser Chiefs, for some reason. The fans are singing along happily, and judging by a few cases, drunkenly."
    BBC Sport's Bryn Palmer at Twickenham

    "Tuilagi cut through the 10 and 12 channel last week against Gloucester, but if this week they decide to play wide I am not sure Sackey will be able to cope with him."
    meforenglandmanager on the 606 messageboards

    1422: That's enough of the warm-up for Leicester - or maybe they've had enough of those ear-splitting drums. They head for the tunnel and some final preparations behind closed doors.

    1420: Wasps head for the tunnel. Just 10 minutes until kick-off and they are replaced by some dancers with drums on the field, ramping up the crowd a bit more. Leicester are still out there.

    1418: Director of rugby Ian McGeechan is over-seeing the Wasps backs. Full-back Danny Cipriani is hammering a tackle bag. The next thing he has to tackle could be Alesana Tuilagi. Gulp! It is a big game for the youngster.

    "The Wasps pack have had just had a huddle down in the south-west corner of the Twickenham pitch. After a few words from Tom Rees, described by Josh Lewsey as a "future England captain", skipper Lawrence Dallaglio takes over to make a few points very forcibly to his fellow forwards."
    BBC Sport's Bryn Palmer at Twickenham

    1415: A microphone is thrust in front of Leicester coach Pat Howard. He claims to be nervous but he's looking cool ahead of his final match in charge of the Tigers. "This is a one-off, there are no second chances next week," he says. The Australian identifies those first 20 minutes when Wasps will be "fresh" as being crucial. Will this be a grand farwell for Howard?

    "Tom French's a lovely guy, a Harrow boy and an arts scholar. Wasps have struggled in the set-piece and I think referees are starting to notice that. It's a shrewd move."
    BBC Five Live analyst Matt Dawson

    1412: News of a team change for Wasps. Tom French comes into the front-row in place of Peter Bracken. He has only had one start for the club before. England captain Phil Vickery moves across from loose-head to tight-head to accommodate French.

    1409: Wasps flanker Joe Worsley looks up for this. He is burning up the grass at the head of his squad's jog, which is steadily slipping through the gears. Fearsome coach Shaun Edwards will soon be out there pumping them up even more.

    1405: Leicester are also out now. Like their rivals it's a gentle group jog to start with.

    "Leicester appear to have the greater share of the support in so far, but the stadium bars are still doing cracking business with less than half-an-hour to kick-off."
    BBC Sport's Bryn Palmer at Twickenham

    1402: Wasps are out to warm up at Twickenham, which is steadily filling up.

    1359: Talking about prices, Leicester are 2/5 with Wasps 21/10 with the bookies. Not much return for a sneaky quid there! Big spenders only need apply.

    1356: Scrum-half is a potential problem for Leicester. Not because third-choice Frank Murphy is not up to the task, he certainly was against Gloucester in the Premiership final, but because they have no back-up. With Harry Ellis and Scott Bemand injured and Ben Youngs not eligible, back replacements Ian Humphreys and Sam Vesty have been brushing up on their number nine skills during the week. What price a snide Wasps kicks at Murphy early doors, a la Jay Joseph v Kyran Bracken?

    "Leicester will struggle if the Wasps back row get their hands on scrum-half Frank Murphy"
    RL on the 606 messageboards

    "I never like Josh Lewsey when he plays in the centre and Leicester have more match winners. They'd swap everything for the Heineken Cup, that's how big it is and the players will be wetting themselves at the moment."
    Former Leicester utility player Austin Healey on Five Live

    1352: That's enough politics, back to the rugby.

    "It's a very happy day and with 45 minutes until kick-off it's already a great day for the Heineken Cup."
    Ian Robertson, BBC Radio Five Live rugby correspondent

    1344: Good news for the future of the tournament. ERC chief executive Derek McGrath tells Radio Five Live that an agreement has been reached with the French and English clubs so the Heineken Cup will be at full strength next season. "This is a magnificent product and the future is important to world rugby," adds the Irishman.

    1339: Never mind former players hawking themselves around the media. Who do you think will win? Will Wasps be rusty? Will Leicester be heavy legged after too much rugby in comparison? Get involved on the messageboards.

    1336: Former England hooker Brian Moore is expecting a "tight game", with Leicester coming out on top.

    1332: Earlier in the week former England and Wasps scrum-half Matt Dawson said if it was dry Wasps would win. Well, it's dry for the time being and the weather looks set fair despite the clouds.

    "The Tigers are so good but I'm sure Wasps can pull it off! Come on guys!"
    Mark from New Malden via text on 81111.

    "Been at Twickenham since 1030. Vast numbers of Leicester fans here. Perfect rugby weather. Hopefully an upset on the cards from Wasps."
    Simon, Lee, Craig & Heidi via text on 81111

    "There's a party atmosphere in Twickenham's Church Street with balloons in team colours hung up outside pubs and restaurants with fans drinking in the street in the sun. As well as those Munster tops there are few Biarritz supporters milling around as well."
    BBC Sport's Bryn Palmer en route to HQ

    1324: Talking of internationals there are 12 on each team today, including two former England captains, the present skipper of the national side and the French captain.

    "Leicester have been blowing sides away in the last 10 weeks and Wasps will have to draw on every ounce of experience. It's a massive task for them. They have been the dominant teams in domestic rugby and matches between them are close to Test matches."
    Matt Dawson, BBC Five Live analyst

    "We've had muted celebrations here with our last two wins and the players know this is the biggest of the biggest. Hopefully we can catch them cold.
    Richard Cockerill, Leicester forwards coach

    "Obviously we're underdogs, but numbers 1-22 in a Wasps shirt are thinking differently. We've trained very, very hard and we've just got to get on with it."
    Shaun Edwards, Wasps coach

    1315: One of the major repercussions of that April match is that Wasps have not played since. Three weeks without a game, apart from a run out against their second XV. They could be ring rusty.

    1314: After two meetings this season it is 2-0 to Leicester. Their last meeting came in late April when the Tigers destroyed their rivals up front and ensured Wasps didn't reach the Premiership play-offs.

  • November 2006: Wasps 13-19 Leicester
  • April 2007: Leicester 40-26 Wasps

    1311: But Wasps have a pretty handy record at Twickers as well having won their last five finals here, including the last time the Heineken Cup final was played here in 2004 when they beat Toulouse 27-20.

    1308: Both those victories came at Twickenham and Tigers fans may as well have a season ticket to HQ as well as Welford Road this season.

    1306: Saturday's FA Cup final was all about Doubles. This is all about a Treble with Leicester looking to add European silverware to the Premiership title and the EDF Energy Cup.

    1303: It's going to be big on the pitch as well. Leicester coach Pat Howard has described the game as "massive", while his Wasps counterpart Shaun Edwards has said it is the "biggest club rugby match ever".

    1300: The pre-match travel crush is no surprise as this game is going to break the world record attendance for a club game. Around 82,000 are descending on Twickenham which will eclipse the 79,741 who watched Stade Francais and Toulouse earlier this year.

    "The tube into Richmond was rammed as early as midday with fans in Wasps and Tigers shirts plus a few from defending champions Munster, bless 'em. And that was just the warm up for the train to Twickenham station! That must be what it's like to be in the middle of the first scrum of the day - a horrid, sweaty mass."
    BBC Sport's Bryn Palmer en route to rugby's HQ
