- Bath 44-52 Wasps
- Cruse and Odogwu score two tries each for Wasps
For those seeking escape from wider troubles, the Rec this Friday night was the place to be – if only anyone had been allowed in. No fewer than 96 points scored, but a riot of running from start to finish. And once the dust had settled, yet another win for Wasps, yet another defeat for Bath. It is difficult to know what the significance of points are these days, so many awarded for events off the field, but the five Wasps picked up here take them into the top four of what passes for the table.
Bath, incredibly given the rate at which they opened, had to wait until the sixth minute of over-time to register their bonus-point try. Having led by 13 points early on, then 12 with half-time approaching, an eight-point defeat will hurt. But what a match they contributed towards.
