Wasps secured a Challenge Cup home quarter-final on Sunday with a comfortable bonus-point victory over Bordeaux-Begles in Pool 3 at Adams Park.

Wasps 36 - 13 Bordeaux-Begles

Wasps only needed a victory to beat Bayonne in the race for top spot in Pool 3 but a four-try bonus point was enough to secure a home quarter-final.

Wasps will now face two-time Heineken Cup finalists Biarritz, who join the draw after failing to make the last eight in Europe's top-tier competition.

Tries from Elliott Daly, Matt Everard, Tom Lindsay and a penalty try proved to be enough for the 2003 Challenge Cup Champions.

UBB winger Vunga Lilo stunned the hosts with an early intercept try to take an early lead, but Wasps steadied the ship and led 13-7at half-time.
