England winger Chris Ashton grabbed the crucial try as Aviva Premiership leaders Saracens fought back from 13-0 down to beat Wasps 22-13.

Wasps scored all their points in the opening 13 minutes, with full-back Elliot Daly landing two long-range penalties either side of a try from 21-year-old winger Christian Wade which was converted by Stephen Jones.

However, Saracens hit back almost immediately with a try from USA international Chris Wyles, and a penalty from Owen Farrell saw them go into the interval 13-8 behind. The visitors then completed their comeback in the second half thanks to Ashton's 66th-minute score and three more Farrell penalties.
