Wasps claim much-needed win

Wasps ended their nine-match Aviva Premiership losing streak to ease their relegation fears - but the 18-13 victory over London Irish came at a cost with the loss of scrum-half Joe Simpson.

Simpson, one of the 18 players released from England's RBS 6 Nations training squad, dislocated his left shoulder in the first half.

But Wasps overcame the setback to move eight points clear of bottom club Newcastle Falcons with a victory which could rescue their season.

Fly-half Nicky Robinson kicked all their points with six penalties from seven attempts.

Irish replied with the only try of the match from Fijian winger Sailosi Tagicakibau, with fly-half Steve Shingler landing the conversion and two penalties.
