England’s tactical kicking has been earning rave reviews in this year’s Six Nations, but Danny Cipriani showed on Friday night that the boot can be just as effective in the Premiership when hunting down important tries.
Cipriani was inside his own half when he launched a monster garryowen that was collected near the 22 by Ollie Thorley who raced on to give Jason Woodward the pass to score in a excellent nip-and-tuck, five-try contest that ended the Premiership’s 40-day hibernation without a fixture.
Stunning kick by Cipriani ?
Incredible catch by Thorley ?
Strong finish by Woodward ?

And when a bonus point score arrived just 12 minutes into the second half through Will Rowlands, it looked done and dusted for Wasps.
A brave effort from @BristolBears ? at Ashton Gate ?
