Melville - No Let Up
January 10, 2000

Wasps coach Nigel Melville is demanding his side do not let their guard slip following another comprehensive European Cup victory at Loftus Road.

Wasps ruthlessly brushed aside reigning hampions Ulster 49-17, to maintain their 100% winning record.

But only victory at Llanelli's Stradey ark next week will secure them top spot in Pool C and all-important quarter inal home advantage.

Melville said: "We wan to win our roup and finish with a clean sheet.

"We intend to win, get a home tie and move forward. It will be a very tough
game because Stradey Park has a fearsome reputation.

``It's a great opportunity to test ourselves and a crucial game for this
group. A win would be well earned.''

Despite Wasps' resounding victory Melville was still far from happy with many
elements of their performance.

Despite his 27-point haul, Kenny Logan's goalkicking again looked in need of
work while errors crept into the home side's forward play on too many

Melville added: ``We want to win every game but in the first half we we're

``We got some easy points on the board but sat back and relaxed. Our
goalkicking was dreadful and really needs some work.

``I take no delight in the fact we let Ulster get their first try of the
entire competition.''

Melville confirmed that Fraser Waters, who this week celebrated his call-up to
England's training squad, will be available to join coach Clive Woodward's first
session of the New Year despite being stretchered off midway through the first
half following a knock to the head.
