Bristol got the ideal start as Philippa Tuttiett scored on 8 minutes, with the conversion slotted neatly through the posts.

Shortly after Wasps were award a penalty to bring the score to 3 – 7.

Tilly Vaughan-Fowler got the next score, with Sue Neumann converting successfully – lead to half time with a scoreline of 3 – 14.

Wasps started a comeback of their own, getting three tries in the remaining 25 minutes, however an intercept try from Olivia Jones secured the win for Bristol, with the final score 18 – 26.
