Bath Rugby ensured their winning start to their European campaign continued with a determined 26-10 victory over Newport Gwent Dragons at the Rec this afternoon.
The win sees them finish the first two rounds at the top of Pool Two in the Amlin Challenge Cup, three points clear of today’s opponents.
The home side started brightly, but Tom Heathcote’s early shot at goal skewed just wide of the posts from a difficult angle.
The miss didn’t deter Bath though, and they kept up the pressure in the Newport half and after some patient build-up and quick passing along the back line, Academy winger Richard Lane found himself in plenty of space to gallop over the line unopposed. Heathcote was on target with the conversion taking the score to 7-0 after seven minutes.
