Hello everyone, Rob Sutton here, I've been following Wasps since I was 6 and been a season ticket holder since the 13/14 season. Today we welcome our new Midlands rivals Leicester Tigers to the Ricoh and I'll be blogging throughout the day.

I should also explain this is a big game for me personally as I'm a student in Leicester and have a lot of Tigers supporting friends, bragging rights for the term which starts tomorrow are at stake!

It's a huge game for both sides today, Wasps can move clear at the top with a win after Saracens and Exeter drew yesterday while Tigers sacked Richard Cockerill on Monday following 3 defeats in their last 4 games, a defeat today would see them lose touch with the playoff positions.

First things first, a matchday breakfast!

Train number 1 of the day- Leicester to Birmingham New Street, outnumbered by away fans....

Train number 2- Birmingham New Street to Coventry and we've finally found some fellow Wasps fans!

Arrived at the Ricoh and here is a matchday essential

You don't often say this at the Ricoh but it is rocking here and still 50 minutes until kick off!

Just over 10 minutes to kick off, Ricoh is rocking already, I'll see you on the other side.

HALF TIME: Wasps 19-3 Leicester Tigers, its men v boys here at the Ricoh, Wasps brilliant in attack and strong in defence, a pleased Rob here
