Stephen Jones impressed on his Wasps debut

Stephen Jones landed 23 points on his Wasps debut to help his new club to their first Aviva Premiership win of the season against London Irish.

The 34-year-old Welshman, with 104 caps for his country, produced a perfect kicking performance, slotting five penalties and also converting two tries from Tom Varndell and one each from scrum-half Joe Simpson and replacement prop Zak Taulafo in a 43-14 victory.

It provided a bonus-point winning start for Wasps' new ownership consortium, who took control of the club from former owner Steve Hayes this week.

Irish replied with a try from England Under-20 winger Marland Yarde and three penalties from fly-half Steven Shingler.
