Freddie Burns starred with 19 points as Bath climbed into the Premiership’s top six with a 24-14 win at Wasps.
Bath started the day only three points off the foot of a bunched-up table but ended it only one away from the top four.
Burns scored every one of Bath’s first-half points and it was his try that gave Todd Blackadder’s men the lead for the first time.
Wasps remain fourth but are now on a losing run of four matches in all competitions.
So that concludes the pre-Christmas collection of classics ?
