Where to go next

With another Premiership weekend done and dusted, you now have my permission to turn your attention towards England, and their Six Nations match against Italy.

Kick off at Twickenham is quickly approaching - you can follow all the action here.

Bristol reaction

FT: Bristol 12-11 Bath; Wasps 35-22 Gloucester

Bristol fly-half Gavin Henson told BT Sport:

"I'm just so happy we saw it out.

"We can take a lot from that which will help for next week, which will be a massive game.

"We're fighting for our lives and there was a good attitude from us today."

Full-time

Wasps 35-22 Gloucester

Wasps go six points clear at the top of the Premiership with a bonus-point win.

Jimmy Gopperth a huge influence with his 25 points.

Full-time

Bristol 12-11 Bath

The reaction at the full-time whistle says it all - this is a massive victory for Bristol.

A first win over their rivals in 11 years, which moves the bottom side to within two points of Worcester, who they visit next Sunday.

Gavin Henson kicks all their points, with Semesa Rokoduguni's try not enough for Bath

Try (Christian Wade)

Wasps 35-22 Gloucester

A fifth try for Wasps and the leading try scorer in the league makes sure of the win if it wasn't already. 

Jimmy Gopperth unable to add to his tally.

Wasps 30-22 Gloucester

One minute left in Coventry. Guess who got man of the match?

Gloucester can still get themselves a losing bonus point with a score.

Bristol 12-11 Bath

The hosts are digging deeper than they probably have done all season.

Bath are probing, but Semesa Rokoduguni in particular is having a frustrating time of it.

Just over two minutes to hold on for a famous win.

Try (Jimmy Gopperth)

Wasps 30-22 Gloucester

What more can you say about this man?

His hat-trick, Wasps' fourth and he has 25 points of their 30 after missing the conversion.

It is off the back of a driving maul and is that the moment Wasps finally secure the win?

Bristol 12-11 Bath

Gavin Henson shows he has defensive steel as well as kicking ability, as he and Jack Lam secure Bristol a precious penalty while under severe pressure.

Bath's Guy Mercer is a tad lucky not to go to the bin - but his arm doesn't make contact with an opponent and he is let off.

Into the last seven minutes.

Try (Max Scott)

Wasps 25-22 Gloucester

Game on. Very, very much game on.

Tom Marshall's break sets up Max Scott who sprints away to dot down near the posts and allows Billy Twelvetrees an easier conversion, which he gets.

Three tries each. A three-point ball game.

No try

Wasps 25-15 Gloucester

It is Kurtley Beale this time with the defence saving moment.

As Gloucester pound the line it looks inevitable they have gone over but the Australian puts enough of his body under the ball to prevent a try.

10 minutes to go.

Try (Semesa Rokoduguni)

Bristol 12-11 Bath

Semesa Rokoduguni
Rex Features

Tusi Pisi has his pass intercepted by Semesa Rokoduguni, who sprints clear from his own half to score his 10th try of the season.

The England international is electric, and the Bristol players chasing him down had to give up.

It was worth the wait for that try, but Bath's Rhys Preistland misses the conversion to leave them a point behind with 11 minutes to go

No try

Wasps 25-15 Gloucester

Josh Bassett thought he had secured that fourth try and bonus-point but credit the scrambling Gloucester defence here.

On the line they are able to get hands under the ball as the Wasps wing stretches to place down and prevent the score.

Bristol 12-6 Bath

Bath have won all three meetings with Bristol so far this season, but the home side aren't far away from getting one back on their rivals.

They look relatively comfortable here, with penalties looking more likely than tries.

Wasps 25-15 Gloucester

There are 14 minutes to go at the Ricoh Arena and lots to play for. 

One try for Wasps secures them a try bonus-point, while a score for Gloucester gets them within lose bonus-point territory.

Penalty (Jimmy Gopperth)

Is there a finer kicker in the Premiership?

Jimmy Gopperth takes his tally for the day up to 20 points with another penalty and importantly puts Wasps more than one score away from Gloucester.

Penalty (Rhys Preistland)

Bristol 12-6 Bath

Rhys Preistland

It wouldn't be a derby without some handbags, but Bristol may regret it as it results in a Bath penalty.

Rhys Preistland hasn't been quite as accurate as his opposite number this afternoon, but makes no mistake this time.

Bristol 12-3 Bath

Less than 25 minutes to play at Ashton Gate.

The way things are going Gavin Henson, who has kicked all of Bristol's points, is heading for man of the match on his return from injury.

Can Bath do anything to stop that?

Wasps 22-15 Gloucester

Willie Le Roux's afternoon is done as Josh Bassett replaces him.

As you'd expect, some classy touches from the South Africa international on show during his 55 minute stint.

Gloucester enjoying a good spell of possession deep in Wasps' territory.

Bristol 12-3 Bath

Jordan Williams is forced off for the hosts with an injury, adding to the already large number of players on the Bristol treatment table.

Their defence remains immaculate though - winning another turnover as Bath try to threaten.

Try (Willie Le Roux)

Wasps 22-15 Gloucester

A sign of champions is how you respond in adversity and Wasps respond immediately.

Danny Cipriani's grubber kick is too good for the Gloucester backline and Thomas Young helps it back inside to Willie Le Roux to score on his first start for his new club.

Jimmy Gopperth gets the better of the swirling wind to add two more.

No try

Bristol 12-3 Bath

Bristol v Bath
Rex Features

Thank goodness for video replays in sport.

David Denton uses his force to dot down in the corner, but yet again Bath are denied by the TMO due to a foot being in touch.

Alby Mathewson is the Bristol man whose tackle saved the day this time.

Penalty (Gavin Henson)

Bristol 12-3 Bath

Where would Bristol be if this man hadn't been out injured since October?

Semesa Rokoduguni fumbles embarrassingly out of play, and a minute later the hosts have a penalty which Gavin Henson dispatches.

He certainly has the upper hand on his fellow countryman so far.

Try (David Halaifonua)

Wasps 15-15 Gloucester

A quiet atmosphere around Wasps' home ground as it has been all Gloucester at the start of the second-half.

Their efforts are rewarded with David Halaifonua dives over out wide. The conversion is not good so we're all square.

Missed penalty

Bristol 9-3 Bath

Bath are awarded a penalty at the driving line-out, but Rhys Preistland's kick is wayward.

Small margins are going to make the difference in this game, you would think.

Second half

Wasps 15-10 Gloucester

James Hook gets the game in Coventry back underway

Can we have some tries please?

Half-time

Bristol 9-3 Bath

Gavin Henson

And we've reached the midway point at Ashton Gate.

All points have come from the boot so far.

Derby games are often close affairs, and this one looks to be no different.

Half-time

Wasps 15-10 Gloucester

Jimmy Gopperth

Gloucester have done very well to disrupt the free-flowing Wasps throughout that first 40 and will feel hard done by not to go in, in the head.

The points machine that is Jimmy Gopperth has put Wasps ahead by scoring all their points - two tries, a penalty and a conversion.

Penalty (Gavin Henson)

Bristol 9-3 Bath

This time Jason Woodward is wronged and gets a penalty for Bristol.

Similar position, same kicker, same result - Gavin Henson gets more points against his old club.

Try (Jimmy Gopperth)

Wasps 15-10 Gloucester

He scores out wide. He scores from the tee. And he scores from the back of a driving maul.

Wasps set up the line-out maul perfectly, the backs flood in and Gopperth adds his muscle to it to get the ball at the back and put down as they cross the line - the adds the conversion.

Penalty (Jimmy Gopperth)

Wasps 8-10 Gloucester

With Wasps on the attack, maybe Jimmy Gopperth could have done better with his delayed pass out wide but the hosts earn a penalty anyway.

The Premiership's leading points scorer makes amends as his strike sails between the posts.

Penalty (Gavin Henson)

Bristol 6-3 Bath

Scrum-half Alby Mathewson wins the home side a penalty, and Gavin Henson has the relatively simple task of dissecting the posts.

Bristol back ahead with a minute left of the first half

Bristol 3-3 Bath

Todd Blackadder

Line-outs aren't straight, the kicking's not accurate and errors are being made.

This is the biggest crowd Bristol Rugby have had at Ashton Gate this season, but this derby is lacking a bit of quality.

Bath boss Todd Blackadder is already pointing fingers.

Wasps 5-10 Gloucester

Willie le Roux

At its best, the Wasps backline is arguably the finest assembled in the country and only added in quality in recent weeks with the addition of South Africa international Willie le Roux.

He's shown a couple of glimpses so far but not been able to have a massive influence on the game.

Bristol 3-3 Bath

Tom Varndell
Rex Features

While the game continues into its 30th minute, the Premiership's record try-scorer Tom Varndell has a disagreement with the Bristol doctor.

He took a knock to the head and wanted a quick return to the pitch after his head injury assessment, but the experts clearly feel he should stay off for the time being.

Varndell looks far from happy with the decision.

Missed penalty

Wasps 5-10 Gloucester

He was two from two before this strike, but former England regular Billy Twelvetrees gets his angles and his strike all wrong from the penalty.

That said, Gloucester enjoying their afternoon at the Premiership leaders so far, enjoying lots of ball.
