Wasps resisted a courageous second-half display by Leicester Tigers to earn a narrow victory in a captivating eight-try game at the Ricoh Arena.
Scores by Juan de Jongh and Josh Bassett saw Wasps race 14-0 ahead.
Tigers hit back to trail 25-18, but the controversial dismissal of Will Spencer for a high tackle turned the game heavily in Wasps’ favour by the break.
Johnny May’s second try helped put Tigers ahead but three Lima Sopoaga kicks sealed victory for the hosts.
