Wasps mounted a second-half comeback to beat Newcastle and move level on points with the Falcons in eighth.
Tries from Marco Fuser and George Wacokecoke helped Newcastle take an 18-6 lead at the break.
But Wasps came out of the blocks with intent in the second half as Brad Shields and Tom West went over from close range to turn it around.
Newcastle second row Greg Peterson and scrum-half Michael Young were both sin-binned to aid Wasps’ turnaround.
