Wasps director of rugby Dai Young has praised his side for their "outstanding" win over Bath on Sunday.

Despite a late fightback from the visitors at Adams Park, Wasps were able to clinch a 29-22 victory to move themselves up to fifth place in the Aviva Premiership table.

"For 65 minutes I thought that we were outstanding; we delivered everything we talked about," Young told the club's official website. "Bath are a real quality outfit and I thought we put them under severe pressure for 65 minutes, stopping them playing, but they showed how good they are in coming back towards the end of the game.

"Everything we talked about we delivered. We had a spell just after half time when we had a few pressure moments during which, if we had come away with points, we could have killed the game off.

"With 15 minutes to go I knew that Bath weren't dead and buried, they are always going to come back at you and luckily we held them off."

Wasps start their European Champions Cup campaign this Sunday with a trip to Leinster.
