Wasps forward James Haskell insists that his side will not take anything for granted after moving into the play-off spots with a win over Bath.
Bath had taken the early initiative and led 12-3 after 20 minutes through tries from Nick Abendanon and Michael Claassens, but Christian Wade’s trickery, Stephen Jones’ majestic right boot - which gathered 17 points in total - and Chris Bell’s late effort proved too much for the visitors.
Wade’s brilliant solo effort, his sixth try of the Premiership season, turned the tide in Wasps’ favour but Haskell insists they will not be getting carried away despite moving into fourth.
“It’s exciting [that we’re in the top four], but the good thing is that our feet will be firmly back on the floor [next week],” said Haskell.
“We are pleased as a team but we know there’s a lot of work to do. There’s a long way to go.
“We’ve got a new team with a lot of young talent, with great new signings like Ashley Johnson. In the Premiership slow and steady wins the race and we’ve just got to keep going and look at our games and keep on improving.
“I think belief comes from doing a lot of hard work, sometimes in our review meetings you’re not sure if you have won the game given the amount of scrutiny we are put under but everyone is working hard towards the same goal.
