London Wasps made it four wins from four in the Amlin Challenge Cup Pool stages as they overcame Grenoble 32-12 at Adams Park on Sunday.

The victory leaves the English side three points clear of Bayonne, who sit second in the group.

Wasps' tries came from flank James Haskell and left wing Tom Varndell while Ratu Alipate Ratini replied with a brace for the Top 14 outfit.

But it was the boot of home fly-half Joe Carlisle which proved the difference as he kicked 19 points to go with three from full-back Elliott Daly.

The scorers:

For Wasps:
Tries: Haskell, Varndell
Con: Carlisle 2
Pen: Carlisle 5, Daly

For Grenoble:
Tries: Ratini 2
Con: Bezy
