Wasps secured a dramatic victory over struggling Worcester thanks to two tries in the final two minutes of today's game.

Warriors deservedly led at the break after a try from Vuna, but a 78th minute score from Halai put Wasps ahead in the match for the first time.

Straight from the restart, Tagicakibau's turnover touchdown not only earned Wasps a four-try bonus point, but it also denied Worcester a losing bonus point.

Wasps now move up to sixth in the table while Worcester remain in 10th.
