Tom Willis’ late attempt helped Wasps begin their Premiership marketing campaign with a slim win over Bristol.

A trio of Jimmy Gopperth penalties edged Wasps forward after Sam Bedlow had kicked the Bears forward.

Harry Randall burrowed over for Bristol earlier than Jack Willis rumbled over to place Wasps again in entrance.

Bears skipper Siale Piutau crossed to revive the lead in a dramatic ultimate quarter, however Willis touched down with two minutes left to nick the win.

Extra to observe.
