Young - Wasps not thinking about top-four finish
Dai Young has played down Wasps' chances of a top-four finish in the Premiership despite Sunday's 26-19 bonus-point win at Exeter.
Tries from Willie le Roux, Juan de Jongh, Marcus Watson and Zurabi Zhvania helped Wasps to what was their first ever win at Sandy Park and the result has also moved them up to fifth in the standings, just three points off fourth-place Harlequins with three matches remaining in the regular season.
The victory over the Premiership leaders certainly seems to have reignited Wasps' hopes of securing a playoff spot, but Young is only focusing on improving over a game-by-game basis.
"It's a crazy league isn't it? We haven't really talked about top four or top six. Last week was more about that we just needed a win," Young told reporters at his post-match press conference.
"What the challenge was and what we were looking for individually and collectively was to improve on where we were last week. That's still the challenge going into the next three games."
Young also praised the team spirit his side showed to claim not only Wasps' first win at Exeter, but also his first success as a coach at Sandy Park.
He added: "I've never won down here. It didn't look good in the first 15 minutes when they got two tries but I couldn't be prouder of the players today.
"We were under pressure for big parts of that game but we dug in, worked for each other and played some good stuff as well."
