Wasps secured a home quarter-final in the Amlin Challenge Cup with a comfortable 36-13 bonus-point victory over French side Bordeaux-Begles in Pool 3 at Adams Park.

The Premiership side, who are struggling in their domestic competition, needed only a victory to win their pool but managed to get a bonus point, scoring four tries, to secure a vital home draw in the quarter-finals.

Elliott Daly, Matt Everard, Tom Lindsay and a penalty try proved to be enough for the former Amlin Challenge Cup Champions, who lifted this trophy in 2003.

The win keeps Wasps at the pool summit despite Bayonne's thumping 92-6 win over minnows Rovigo.
