Bath United opened their Aviva Premiership A League account with a 36-16 win over the visiting London Wasps A.
United scored four tries to Wasps' two in a back-and-forth encounter that was won by sheer dint of the home side's ability to make the most of the opportunities presented to them.
Wasps fly-half Joe Carlisle's successful ninth-minute penalty kick saw an immediate response from the United backs. Captain Kane Palma-Newport, a constant thorn in Wasps' side, was quick to turn-over a loose ball, which was spun wide by inside centre Gavin Henson to his outside man Max Clark.
Fullback Ludi Hopkinson perfectly judged the line through which to take Clark's soft pass, drawing the last man in Wasps' defence to pop to rampaging wing Tom Biggs, who hared under the posts to score the opening try. With fly-half Tom Heathcote successfully converting, it was 7-3 to United.
