Bath United power through to A League final




Bath United powered into the Aviva A League Final with a convincing 39-21 win over the Sale Jets this evening at the Recreation Ground.

United were greeted by a 6000 strong capacity crowd at the Rec - a record for a home A league fixture - and were quick to gain an early advantage through some great attacking play. Olly Woodburn and Richard Lane combined on the right wing at first, before the ball was spread wide across the pitch. Kyle Eastmond fed Tom Biggs, who burst down the left wing, passing the ball back inside to Eastmond who flew over the line after only a minute on the clock. Tom Heathcote was on target with his first attempt at goal to add to the extra two points. 7-0.

From the restart United were on the attack again and after some patient build up play, Tom Dunn peeled off the back of a great driving maul to dart over. Heathcote was again on song with the conversion attempt. 14-0.

London Wasps 5 Bath Rugby 28

Two tries from Semesa Rokoduguni saw Bath Rugby emphatically end London Wasps' 100 per cent home record in the Aviva Premiership as they came away from Adams Park with a 28-5 victory.

Wasps had so far been unbeatable at home however Bath arrived in the capital confident of changing all that having won their last six games in all competitions.

And after George Ford had got the visitors on the board with a penalty and a drop goal winger Rokoduguni popped up with his first try of the game just before half-time to hand Bath an 11-0 lead at the interval.

"I think we did look hungry," Hatley said. "That's what competition for places does. That healthy competition means that every single opportunity, they're going to have to take with both hands.

Bath Rugby Statement

Contrary to current reports, Bath Rugby can confirm that Kyle Eastmond is still in contract with the Club and is very much part of the squad.

An incident arose at the Sale game last Friday which has led to an internal investigation, but this has been dealt with and both parties have put the matter behind them.

The Club will be making no further comment on this matter.

Bath Rugby seal dramatic late win at Sale Sharks

Bath Rugby sealed a dramatic late 20-27 victory against Sale Sharks at the AJ Bell Stadium tonight, with the winning try scored in the 80th minute.
The first half was an even display, starting with a Joe Ford penalty for the Sharks three minutes after the opening whistle.

Bath did very well to keep Sale out in the first quarter, the home side exerting pressure with the ball in hand. Nonetheless, the visitors kept their nerve in defence – not least out wide, where Tom Biggs showed precision and force in the tackle.

The key moment for Bath came on 24 minutes, after Shark fly-half Ford was deemed to have made his clearance kick from outside his 22. Suddenly the visitors had the invite their forwards had been waiting for, the resulting maul guzzling up yards patiently until Anthony Perenise touched down amidst the mass of bodies in the in-goal area. Tom Heathcote converted to make it 3-7.

Worcester 6 Bath 21: Perenise powers visitors into second place

Worcester are still searching for their first Premiership win of the season after Bath condemned them to their seventh consecutive loss.

The Warriors already appear doomed to relegation as they now find themselves eight points adrift at the foot of the table with their nearest rivals, Gloucester and London Irish, both having home games to come this weekend and with it a chance to extend their advantage.
In the incessant rain, Bath were more streetwise than their opponents and took their chances whereas Worcester did not.
