Connacht were unable to make it a clean sweep for the Irish provinces in the Champions Cup this weekend, after they were beaten by English Premiership side Wasps.
Pat Lam's side scored two tries but came unstuck in the second half, allowing the home side to complete a bonus point victory.
Tries from Kieran Marmion and Rory Parata kept the Pro12 champions in the game but there was to be no answer to two late tries in the game, Josh Bassett securing the victory as he crossed in the final five minutes.
Jack Carty had a mixed day from the boot, making conversions from both tries but only slotting over one of the three penalties awarded to Connacht.
