Wasps won their first Premiership game of the season to move off the foot of the table on Sunday.

Tries from George Skivington and Daniel Cipriani helped Wasps into a 15-3 lead but two Eoghan Hickey penalties trimmed the gap to six points at the break.

Tom Voyce scored a converted try two minutes after the re-start before Mark van Gisbergen's penalty made it 25-9.

Delon Armitage crossed for the Exiles but Wasps had the last word through Van Gisbergen's third penalty.
