A review of the weekend’s action so far in the Guinness Premiership.
Sporting Life reports that Gloucester blasted their way to second place in the Guinness Premiership with a 39-10 victory over Bristol in their West Country derby at Kingsholm.
The hosts scored tries through Olly Morgan, Peter Buxton (two), Alex Brown and Ryan Lamb in a one-sided romp.
Bottom-placed Bristol meanwhile had to make do with a late touchdown from David Lemi.
Worcester built on last week’s impressive win at Sale by defeating a combative Newcastle side 26-11 in a poor match.
The game only came to life in the last 10 minutes for as, until then, it had been an error-ridden affair, full of penalty awards.
Worcester were fortunate to be ahead at the interval but they were much the better team in the second half.
Chris Latham was the outstanding player, combining some lengthy touch-finding with some creative running.
Newcastle had no such talisman and seem destined to be competing with Bristol for the relegation spot this season.Tweet
