Edinburgh secure bonus-point win over Wasps

Edinburgh made it two victories out of three in this season's Challenge Cup pool stage as they beat Wasps 31-20 at Murrayfield on Friday.
Lima Sopoaga put Wasps ahead after 16 minutes with a penalty but the hosts took the lead soon after and Edinburgh went into the second half with a 10-6 buffer.
Two quick tries at the start of the second half from Blair Kinghorn and Duhan van der Merwe put the Scots firmly in the lead, with Simon Hickey converting both.
Wasps fought back though, with tries from Sopoaga and Nizaam Carr reducing the deficit, but they could not prevent Edinburgh sealing a crucial bonus-point win when George Taylor crossed with seven minutes remaining.
The defeat means Wasps remain third in the Challenge Cup pool but crucially they are now seven points behind both Edinburgh and Top 14 side Bordeaux-Begles.
