  1. Thank you and good night!

    FT: Bath 26-31 Wasps

    Right, after nine tries, two yellow cards, not a single attempt at a penalty kick and end-to-end action I'm off for a lie down.

    I hope you enjoyed this evening's Premiership action here, with Wasps going second in the table and Bath getting two losing bonus points.

    Don't forget we have live radio coverage of Saturday's four Premiership matches here on BBC Sport.

  2. More to come this weekend

    FT: Bath 26-31 Wasps

    Dylan Hartley

    If you enjoyed this evening, and you'd need your head examined if you didn't, then tghere's lots more to come this weekend.

    Saturday sees four Premiership matches. Feast your eyes on this...

    • Gloucester v Sale (15:00 GMT)
    • London Irish v Newcastle (15:00 GMT)
    • Saracens v Worcester (15:00 GMT)
    • Harlequins v Northampton (16:00 GMT)

    We'll have live BBC radio commentary on each game, with the focus largely on the bottom half of the table.

  3. 'I felt we won the game two times'

    FT: Bath 26-31 Wasps

    Bath v Wasps

    "I'm delighted," Wasps backs coach Lee Blackett told BT Sport.

    "Whenever you come to a place like this you want to look at performance, but results are the main thing.

    "I felt we won the game two times, we got a great start but had ill-discipline."

    He added: "Whenever we score a couple of tries early on we seem to knock off defensively.

    "When we start not having the ball and defending we tend to generally defend well for the 80 minutes."

  4. Bath 26-31 Wasps

    Missed some of the action in this nine-try thriller - here's the BBC Sport match report to help you catch up.

  5. Post update

    FT: Bath 26-31 Wasps

    Dan Robson

    Wasps opened with three tries in the opening 20 minutes before Bath came back, a fast start that pleased scrum-half Dan Robson.

    "We wanted to go out in the first 20 and put a bit of a marker down," he told BT Sport.

    "That's the kind standard we've set now and hopefully we can keep that going for 80 minutes."

  6. Launchbury: 'Our discipline could have cost us'

    FT: Bath 26-31 Wasps

    Joe Launchbury

    Wasps' England forward Joe Launchbury told BT Sport:

    "I felt our discipline on another day would have cost us a victory.

    "If we'd have lost that victory it would have been a massive shame.

    "We had a couple of cheap yellow cards but we found a way to win and that's where we are as a team at the moment and hopefully we can keep on improving."

  7. Full-time

    Bath 26-31 Wasps

    That's it - Bath lose the ball from the lineout and Wasps kick it to touch to sneak the win - Bath get two losing bonus points, Wasps get a five-point win. Nine tries, two yellow cards, lots of attacking rugby - that was a magnificent game of rugby.

  8. Post update

    Bath 26-31 Wasps

    Bath win a penalty in their own half after Marty Moore goes in off his feet and Rhys Priestland kicks deep to pin Wasps deep in their own half - what an end to this match.

  9. Post update

    Bath 26-31 Wasps

    Bath lose the ball at the key moment and Wasps can break. But this ding-dong phase of play sees Bath get the ball back, come forward and then lose it again. Stop the world, I want to get off!

  10. Post update

    Bath 26-31 Wasps

    What a finish we are getting here. Bath are on the march and have made a good 30 metres with some great running rugby. They are 30-odd metres out now and the home crowd is roaring on their side - can they get an unlikely victory?

  11. Post update

    Bath 26-31 Wasps

    Jo Launchbury drops the ball over the line after an excellent bit of Wasps play. Marcus Watson breaks and is held up by his brother for Bath, but a couple of phases later England's Launchbury forward is released to go over but he cannot keep the ball in his hands and Bath get a let-off.

  12. Post update

    Bath 26-31 Wasps

    Wasps are managing the game with 14 men a lot better in this half than they did in the opening period. They have kept the ball in the Bath half for the last few minutes and have a scrum to force some pressure 22 metres out.

  13. Post update

    Bath 26-31 Wasps

    Unlike the first half Wasps are sticking to the game plan of keeping the ball flowing through the backline with good effect. They look threatening despite being down to 14 men and have got good territory with just over five minutes left of Wille Le Roux's sin-bin.

  14. Try Bath 26-31 Wasps

    Zach Mercer

    With the extra man Bath make no mistake - Zach Mercer goes over right by the left post to bring the home side within a score of the lead. This is starting to get really tasty now.

    Rhys Priestland converts with a chip shot from inbetween the posts.

  15. Sin-bin (Le Roux)

    Bath 19-31 Wasps

    Is the first half repeating itself again? Anthony Watson has a great break, the Wasps defence scramble to keep the home side out, and two Wasps defenders were offside as they try and stop the try, Willie Le Roux being one of them and he gets a 10 minute rest. In the first half Wasps lost Marcus Watson and they got back into the game, can they do it against 14 men again?

  16. Post update

    Bath 19-31 Wasps

    As it stands Wasps will go second in the Premiership with 39 points - six off Exeter who beat them in last year's final and have a game in hand. The way they are playing at times, especially with ball in hand, you think they will be some force as the second half of this season gets going, especially if all their injured players can return.

  17. Try Bath 19-31 Wasps

    Gaby Lovobalavu

    Good hands from Joe Launchbury to release Willie Le Roux who times a nice pass to Gaby Lovobalavu and the late replacement for Kyle Eastmond goes over on the right. That's eight tries for the night and five for Wasps - this game has certainly been worth the entry fee!

    Danny Cirpriani misses a difficult conversion.

  18. Try Bath 19-26 Wasps

    Paul Grant

    Paul Grant goes over after an incessant period of pressure on the Wasps tryline by the Bath forwards after a nice break by their backs. Grant is the man who finally goes over after a good half-dozen phases on the try line.

    Rhys Priestland misses the conversion.

  19. Try review

    Bath 14-26 Wasps

    Checking if there is a double movement. Paul Grant looks to have gone over, but the TMO will decide.....

  20. Post update

    Bath 14-26 Wasps

    Jake Cooper-Woolley is penalised by referee Luke Pearce after an infringement in the scrum. Another one at the set piece and Wasps will lose someone again.
