The second quarter of the match ensued with no further score added as the Willis brothers both produced key turnovers in their own 22 when Bristol were well placed, and Spink spurned a great opportunity when he failed to handle Atkinson's teasing pass. England lock Joe Launchbury's brilliant finish in the corner was chalked off due to an earlier forward pass and this was compounded when Atkinson skewed a routine penalty wide. Sheedy made no such mistake from a simpler position. Bristol stretched their lead to 12 entering the final 20 minutes when two Wasps handling errors saw Bristol go from 22 to 22 and Charles Piutau teased his former employers before offloading to Bradbury to reach over despite Alfie Barbeary's tackle attempt. Wasps huffed and puffed in attack but were met by a resolute defensive effort as Bristol showed some of the attributes that saw them finish top of the table only two seasons ago.
It took Genge just two minutes to get the opening try on his first game back to his hometown club from Leicester and Callum Sheedy kicked the conversion before Piers Francis slotted a penalty goal in the 9th minute to make it 7-3. Bath, who lost Chris Cloete with an ankle injury in the 7th minute also lost Beno Obano to injury at the end of the first quarter. Skipper Ben Spencer sniped in after Josh Mcnally sent an inside pass and Francis, who slotted the conversion also followed it with a penalty goal 7-13.
We just made far too many mistakes with the ball, that's why I'm constantly saying "we've got to improve our skillset" and that's what we want from Wasps players.

Tom Cruse's early try wasn't to be a tone setter for Lee Blackett's side as Callum Sheedy's penalty and his converted try gave Bristol a half-time lead. Charlie Atkinson kicked a penalty but then missed a straightforward opportunity that would've put Wasps ahead. From therein the scoring was all in Bristol's favour as a Sheedy landed a penalty and a dropgoal either side of Magnus Bradbury's try to secure a 23-8 victory on the road. The encounter had started so well for Wasps as they took the lead just five minutes in.
When Wasps did find a route through the wall of white before them, an error would follow as a subdued home crowd headed for the exits by the time Sheedy landed a nonchalant dropgoal to put the result beyond any doubt. 21:11KEY EVENTWasps player ratingsFind out how we rated the Wasps players out of 10 by clicking here.
