Christian wades in for Wasps

Winger Christian Wade, this season's Aviva Premiership leading tryscorer, grabbed his sixth of the campaign as Wasps overcame visitors Bath 27-24 at Adams Park.

Former Leicester and England flyer Tom Varndell, on the opposite wing, also touched down for the home side.

Their other 17 points came from the boot of Welsh fly-half Nicky Robinson, who landed five penalties and a conversion on his return from a three-match injury-enforced absence.

Bath replied with tries from 20-year-old prop Kane Palma-Newport and flanker Guy Mercer with 19-year-old fly-half Tom Heathcote marking his first senior start with a 14-point kicking haul.
