Cipriani’s try was his first since re-joining Wasps from Sale this summer, as the England international ran in from 50 metres out to dot down.

Dai Young’s side needed to win by a 56-point margin to go top of the Premiership, but have won their first three league games for the first time since 2009-10 to keep pace with Bath and Saracens.

However, victory extends their winning run at the Ricoh Arena to 11 matches, stretching back to December 2015.

For Andy Robinson’s Bristol it was a third successive defeat following their promotion to the top flight and they remain bottom, although they finished the game just a try away from a bonus point.
