Aviva Premiership leaders Harlequins notch up a convincing 33-17 win over struggling Wasps at the Stoop.

Harlequins have strengthened their grip at the top of the Aviva Premiership table with a 33-17 win over London Wasps at the Stoop.

Nicky Robinson's penalty had fired the visitors into an early 3-0 lead before Rory Clegg levelled up the scores with a kick of his own.

Quins then took control of the game as two tries in quick succession from Ugo Monye and George Robson put them 16-3 ahead.

However, Wasps game themselves hope five minutes before half time when Christian Wade's try was converted to make it 16-10 to the home side at the break.

Harlequins came out fired up after the interval and made their dominance pay with Chris Robshaw's converted score on 45 minutes.

Jordan Turner-Hall touched down just before the hour, while another Clegg penalty gave his side a commanding 33-10 advantage.

Ross Filipo's converted try had given Wasps some hope with 15 minutes to play, but the Aviva Premiership leaders shut them out for the win.
