Result: Strong start helps London Wasps to win

London Wasps clinch their first win of this season's LV= Cup with a 22-15 victory over London Irish.

London Wasps scored three tries inside the opening 25 minutes to set up a 22-15 win over London Irish in the LV= Cup this afternoon.

Charlie Davies sprinted over just three minute into the match to put the home side ahead early on.

Ed Jackson and Josh Bassett both added to the score before half time, giving Wasps a nine-point lead at the break.

Chris Hala'ufia and Jamie Hagan got the visitors back into contention, but the Exiles ran out of steam as they pushed for a potentially game-levelling try late on.

The win is Wasps' first in the competition, while Irish remain without a victory.
