As it happened: Wasps 59-35 Bristol Bears

Bristol Bears fell to defeat at the Ricoh Arena, but a spirited fightback saw Pat Lam’s men pick up a crucial bonus point on the road.

Max Malins’ 18-point haul led the charge for the Bears from fly half, while Piers O’Conor, a penalty try and Peter McCabe’s first try for the club earned a consolation point in the midlands.

Re-live all of the action from Sunday's Gallagher Premiership defeat to Wasps at the Ricoh Arena, as we dissect the key moments.

19 mins – TRY – 26-0 – Rowlands powers over from close range for the bonus point score.

29 mins – Adeolokun screams down the touchline after break from Malins but he is ushered in to touch one metre out.

34 mins – TRY – 26-7 – Superb from Malins, who steps back inside and cruises under the posts. The fly half also converts.

36 mins – TRY – 26-14 – Impressive stuff once again from Malins, who breaks and plays a one-two with O’Conor, who touches down.

40 mins – TRY – 31-14 – Kibirige goes over out wide on the stroke of half time.

HT: Wasps 31-14 Bristol Bears

48 mins – TRY – 38-14 – Robson touches down from counterattack, started by Umaga's flat cross-kick. Gopperth converts.

53 mins – TRY – 45-14 – Penalty try at scrum time sees Wasps pass the 40-point mark.

59 mins – TRY – 45-21 – Zinging pass from Malins sends Byrne through the gap and the hooker links up with the fly half for a second. Conversion added.

69 mins – TRY – 52-21 – Tom Willis spins out of contact to score Wasps' eighth.

73 mins – TRY – 52-28 – That's the all-important bonus-point for the Bears - penalty try awarded by Ian Tempest after superb driving lineout from the visitors.
