Wasps coach Warren Gatland said the Heineken Cup champions had some work to do after nearly letting Calvisano back into the match at the San Michele
Wasps held on for a 31-22 victory against a gritty Italian club, but Calvisano's 19-5 "victory" in the second half did not go unnoticed.
"We gave our youngsters a good run-out today and they played well," said Gatland, referring to winger Michael Roberts' hat-trick on his Cup debut.
"It was good Heineken Cup experience for them, however our second half was rather disappointing as they out-scored us three tries to one.
"Having said that, we played really well in the first half and I felt it was over by half-time," the New Zealander said.
"It is very important to win your games, but now with a home and an away win our season is still on track."
