Bath Rugby's Six Nations Round-Up

15 February 2016

Several Bath Rugby players were on international duty over the weekend. Here's how they fared...

ENGLAND: Outside centre Jonathan Joseph scored a hat-trick of tries against the Italians in Sunday's 9-40 win in Rome, the first of which kickstarted England's romp to victory after an even first half. Fly-half George Ford also added a try to England's haul, as wing Anthony Watson was a handful on the wing for the full 80 minutes. 

ENGLAND U20: Academy back rower Zach Mercer starred at blindside in another equally convincing victory for the Red Rose versus the Azzurri, which enabled the U20s to bounce back from their opening round defeat to Scotland. 

SCOTLAND: Number eight David Denton continued his fine form for the Scots against Wales at the Millennium Stadium, enjoying a fierce encounter with future Clubmate Toby Faletau. Scotland were, however, unable to overcome a strong late onslaught from Wales to close out one of the games of the tournament.    

WALES: Fly-half Rhys Priestland was a 75th-minute replacement for Dan Biggar. After proving himself a more than capable replacement for Biggar in the draw with Ireland last Saturday, Priestland will be hoping for more action during this year's competition.
