Bristol Bears went 11 points clear at the top of the Premiership with a 37-20 bonus-point win over Wasps.

Wasps had raced into a 10-point lead thanks to a Sione Vailanu try, but the Bears hit back through Piers O’Conor’s try and three Tiff Eden penalties.

Joe Joyce bulldozed over on the hour mark before Niyi Adeolokun crossed in the corner as Bristol eased clear.

Josh Bassett broke through to give Wasps a consolation score but Chris Vui earned Bristol a last-gasp bonus point.
