Bath Rugby 16, Leeds Carnegie 13
In a first half played at a dirge-like 60 beats per minute, it was Nick Abendanon who suddenly sent this game into double time.
Following a turgid, error-ridden opening 40 minutes distinguished by only three penalties and a drop goal, it was a knifing, diagonal run by the Bath wing 50 seconds into the second half that lit the paper under this Aviva Premiership contest.

Steve Meehan admits his Bath Rugby side delivered a patchy showing in today’s narrow win over Leeds Carnegie, but was happy to take the four championship points.
“There’s only one thing worse than winning an ugly match and that’s losing it. I’m delighted with the win,” was the Australian’s verdict after Bath ran out 16-13 winners.
