Wasps ended Northampton’s unbeaten start to the season with a 26-20 win in a pulsating derby at Coventry.
Sam Matavesi’s try put Saints ahead, but Zach Kibirige levelled before Dan Biggar and Jacob Umaga traded penalties as a tight first half ended 10-10.
Umaga booted Wasps ahead for the first time before Thomas Young’s offload put Dan Robson over to make it 20-10.
Lewis Ludlam cut the gap, but two Jimmy Gopperth penalties sealed the win despite James Fish’s last-gasp score.
