Junior Match Report: Gloucester 71-10 Bath Rugby

13 November 2021

Gloucester's experience told as Bath Rugby suffered a big defeat in the first round of the Premiership Rugby Cup.

Fielding a starting team with over 600 appearance more than the Blue, Black and White, the hosts scored 11 tries with ex-England Number 8 Ben Morgan scoring a hat-trick.

Jack Clement came off the bench to score two tries while flankers Lewis Ludlow and Ruan Ackermann also crossed the whitewash.

Kyle Moyle, Andrew Davidson, Fraser Balmain and Jake Morris completed Gloucester's try-scoring with Lloyd Evans kicking eight conversions.

Bath's moment of the match came on the hour mark. Following a well-executed line-out, Will Butt powered on to a flat pass to get the visitors on the front foot. Debutant Tom Carr-Smith swooped in to lift the ball to Ruaridh McConnochie who popped on to George Worboys.

The Academy fly-half hit a brilliant line and converted his try to add to his earlier three points.

A hard evening for Bath's lessons.
