Gloucester 22 Wasps 20: Relief as Robinson lifts strugglers

Late show: Nicky Robinson kicked Gloucester to victory

Nicky Robinson's penalty six minutes from time took Gloucester to their second win of the season.

Dave Walder's early penalty was cancelled out by the first of three first-half successes from Tim Taylor, who got the nod to start at outside-half ahead of Robinson.

Eight more points from Taylor's boot, including the conversion of a Eliota Fuimaono-Sapolu try, gave his side a 16-10 lead at the break.

With Tim Payne in the sinbin, Wasps took the lead thanks to Joe Simpson's converted try, to add to Dan Ward-Smith's first-half effort.

But Robinson came off the bench to land two late penalties to win it.
