Wasps boss Lee Blackett expressed disappointment following his side's 42-42 draw against London Irish in the latest round of the Gallagher Premiership at Community Stadium on Sunday.
Wasps dominated most of the first three quarters having a lead of 14-39 riding on tries from Tom Willis, Charlie Atkinson, Zach Kibirige and a double from Francois Hougaard.
Nevertheless, London Irish made an incredible comeback in the final 12 minutes with Tom Pearson, Henry Arundell and Oliver Hassell-Collins scoring tries to make it 35-39 before Jacob Umaga's penalty goal in the 79th minute extended Wasps' lead to seven points.
As the game entered the added minutes, Wasps lost Joe Launchbury to sin-bin for collapsing a maul that also resulted in a penalty try for the Exiles to ensure both the teams shared the points equally.
This was also the highest scoring Premiership game that ended in a draw surpassing the 41-41 result between Leicester and Gloucester in 2011.
"It feels like walking away with a heavy loss and not collecting three valuable points in a tough fixture away from home," said Blackett following the game.
"I'm gutted because I thought I would be describing some terrific efforts from some of our players as they put in a massive effort for the first 65 minutes."
The result also meant London Irish are at 8th place in the table with 61 points while Wasps are positioned 9th with 60 points. Blackett's men will be facing Sale Sharks and Leicester Tigers in the final two rounds of the competition.
