PRIESTLAND PENALTY BAGS FIRST BATH WIN
Bath 18 Wasps 16 Tony Lewing
BATH sealed their first win in the competition, though both sides’ chances of progressing have long since fallen by the wayside.
A 79th-minute penalty from Welsh fly-half Rhys Priestland settled this frantic clash at The Rec after scrum-half Max Green and number eight Zach Mercer had scored tries for Bath.
Priestland added another penalty as well as a conversion.
Wasps scored their only one try through Nathan Hughes, but stayed in the contest as Lima Sopoaga kicked two penalties and a conversion, with Rob Miller also scoring from the tee.
Sopoaga was shown a yellow card for a no-arms block on Jackson Willison and a frenetic final 10 minutes brought the crowd of 13,307 to their feet.
