Joe Simpson embarks on a mazy run
Wasps scored four tries to secure top spot

Wasps secured a home quarter-final in the European Challenge Cup with a hard-fought bonus-point victory against Bordeaux-Begles in Pool Three.

Vunga Lilo's try gave the visitors an early lead before Elliot Daly and Matt Everard put Wasps 13-7 ahead.

Davis kicked three more penalties after the break, with Laurent Ferreres adding three points for the visitors.

Wasps were then awarded a penalty try before Tom Lindsay crossed to give them a comfortable margin of victory.

The Premiership strugglers have secured a home tie with Biarritz in the last eight and, if they win, will face Brive or Scarlets in the semi-finals.
