Reporter: Reporter


Newbury Blues put up an impressive fight against premiership side Wasps, eventually losing to a try in the dying minutes of the match.
Blues got off to a great start in their first match of the pre-season on Saturday, and scored first through a try from full-back Mal Roberts.
The sides were neck-and-neck at 7-7 after the first half.
Tries from Tim Walsh and Gregor Haytor put the home side in front, but a converted try steered the visitors home by 29 points to 24.
Blues take on premiership team Bath on Saturday, and play Saracens on Friday August 25.
Their first league match is at Doncaster on September 2.
