In the big Amlin Challenge Cup game of the weekend, Bayonne fly-half Benjamin Boyet's eleven points proved priceless for the hosts.
Boyet opened the scoring with an early penalty before Nicky Robinson then levelled matters. The Wasps playmaker soon added another penalty.
But then home wing Yoann Huget crossed for the only try of the game, with fly-half Boyet's extra two points sending a strong-looking Bayonne outfit in at the interval 13-6 to the good.
Mike Phillips, Joe Rokocoko, Neemia Tialata and Cedric Heymans were on show for the French side, but it was Boyet who kept them ticking over with points in the second-half.
Replacement Elliot Daly scored a late try for Wasps but Robinson's wayward conversion from the touchline meant the Aviva Premiership outfit left Stade Jean Dauger pointless.
Pen: Boyet 3
Pen: Robinson 2
