Miller loving life with on-song Wasps

RobMiller15SB1005

After a record-breaking Ricoh Arena debut and victory at Kingsholm in the space of a week, Rob Miller has no complaints with life at Wasps.

Miller switched Sale Sharks for Adams Park last summer and after a handful of early appearances off the bench he is now part of the furniture.

Often deployed at full-back but also stepping in at fly-half when needed, the 25-year-old has proven himself a useful asset to Dai Young already.

And with the club making great strides both on and off the pitch – settled into their new Coventry home and within touching distance of the Aviva Premiership Rugby top four – Miller admits life is good.

“The game at the Ricoh was awesome for us,” he said. “To play in front of that many fans was great and a lot of credit must go to the backroom staff and everyone behind the scenes.

“It is a really good set-up down here and obviously exciting times with the move to the new stadium. On the field we are performing quite well and it is just about being confident. I have really enjoyed my time here so far.

“For the last few years Wasps have made no secret that they were looking to own their own stadium. It showed the other week that it’s obviously a great club and that it is great for us as players.

“It was really good to get the win, especially down at Gloucester. It is a very tough place to go. We didn’t feel we performed as well as we could have, but we got the important win.

“Historically Gloucester have always been good at home and they probably always will be. You have got the atmosphere of the shed and I think they were pretty close to a sell-out.”

Italian international Andrea Masi provides stiff competition at full-back, but Miller insists he is enjoying the battle for a starting berth.

And with wingers like Christian Wade, Tom Varndell and Sailosi Tagicakibau by his side, the former England U20 man is in good company.

“It is nice to play in the back three with those guys – they are always going to look to beat the first man if they can,” Miller added.

“Everyone across the league knows how much of a threat Wadey is. He has been going really well and looking really sharp in training.

“Me and Masi are sharing the game time around and it is healthy around the squad.  We have got the strength in depth and people can slot in quite seamlessly.”
