London Wasps 26 Leicester 16: Dallaglio departs on a high as Wasps produce perfect finale

Leicester's survival instincts desert them to cast shadow over Loffreda's future. By Tim Glover at Twickenham

Leeds 28 Wasps 45: Sackey injury a worry for England

There was a frisson of anxiety here, about the state of the Wasps and England wing Paul Sackey's right knee. He left the field before the end of the first quarter and later left the ground on crutches.

Leeds 28, London Wasps 45: Voyce does the trick as Wasps head for home

There were seven minutes of stoppage time here, but Wasps had to wait a further two and a half minutes to discover whether they had a home semi-final.

Leeds lash out at RFU over Lancaster's England role

Stuart Lancaster, who has been a fixture at Leeds for 16 years, is to join the Rugby Football Union as head of elite player development. Leeds, who were promoted to the Premiership last year but finished bottom of the table this season, are not at all impressed by the manner of Lancaster's departure.

Wasps 17 Gloucester 25: Dallaglio's Wasps bow to Gloucester brute force

Wasps have thrown everything at the Premiership after missing out in Europe and the EDF Energy Cup, but yesterday their season – and the finale to Lawrence Dallaglio's outstanding career – threatened to go belly-up.

Gloucester 3 Munster 16: Kidney's men deliver another gutsy victory

The notion that Munster are the best team in Europe might amuse a few folk down Toulouse way, and if you listen carefully you'll hear some quiet scoffing in Lawrence Dallaglio land, but the first official ranking table compiled by the people who run the Heineken Cup gives pride of place to the Limerick hordes. Fact or fantasy? On the one hand, any system that puts a side as half-baked as Biarritz in the top half dozen is discredited almost before it starts. On the other, Munster are a whole lot stronger now than when they won the title in 2006.

Wasps 29 Harlequins 25: Low-key return for Cipriani as Walder stars for Wasps

The name of Danny Cipriani had been on everyone's lips for the last four days following his dramatic axing from the England team following an ill-advised midnight excursion to a London nightclub last week.

Brian Viner: Raise a glass – or six – to Uttley, a true rugby spirit

To previous generations of international rugby union players, popping into a London nightclub for 20 minutes, reportedly to drop some tickets off for a mate and without consuming any alcohol, must seem like a laughably innocuous reason for a dynamic rising star for Wasps and England to be dropped two days before the Calcutta Cup match. Take a former star for Wasps and England, who one evening on tour in Paris, in 1992, stripped almost to the buff and, covered in butter and salt, took on and beat a French No 8, a hulk of a bloke called Bernard, in a sumo wrestling match. Linda Uttley could teach Danny Cipriani a thing or two about painting the town red.

Wasps' fury after Cipriani dropped over nightclub visit

Danny Cipriani, widely acknowledged to be the most exciting rugby talent to have emerged in England since Jonny Wilkinson and the very epitome of a young player in a hurry, was not quite quick enough to avoid the attentions of a lurking photographer as he left a London nightspot in the small hours of yesterday morning, and as a result, he was thrown out of the national team for tomorrow's Calcutta Cup match with Scotland at Murrayfield. It would have been the 20-year-old's first start at Test level. The best he can hope for now is a common or garden league game for his club, Wasps.
