Wasps today announced they have lifted a club suspension imposed on their England prop Tim Payne.

Payne's team-mate, Wales international Andy Powell, remains suspended pending further investigations into an incident in a London pub earlier this week.

Both players were suspended by Wasps on Tuesday.

Powell said he had been knocked unconscious and required stitches in a head wound after what he claimed was "a bit of banter" with football fans escalated into a fight.
