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.
