Fightback Ensures Top 4


By New Cherry
April 14 2019

A superb second half fight back clinched the bonus point win against a Barff side which had been leading 17-0. It means we are now 14 points ahead of fifth placed Saints with just three games remaining. Mathematicians will say we need one more win but rugby experts say we will deffo finish top four ..

Matt Banahan's runs from full back provided the inspiration for the 27-23 win.

Ruaridh McConnochie and Tom Dunn scored as Bath raced into that 17-0 lead but we got one back just before the break as Bath played for time only to allow Josh Hohneck to score.

Beno Obano's yellow in the second half was seized upon by Glaws with Ruan Ackermann scoring.

Then Banahan broke to set up Henry Purdy.

The bonus point came courtesy of Tom Seabrook managing to avoid touch after that man Banahan had burst into the attack.
