First half

Bath played the first 20 minutes with 14 men as Valeriy Morozov and Max Clark received yellow cards.  

The TMO was busy in that period, denying Gloucester three scores while Clark had one ruled out of his own for the Blue, Black and White. 

Just after the hosts’ final disallowed score, Harris flopped over the whitewash following a good run from Atkinson and Rees-Zammit danced into the corner on 29 minutes. 

The Wales international scored a second moments later, collecting his own grubber to dot down and Atkinson’s offload out a tackle set Carreras on a free run to the line. 

SECOND HALF

Rees-Zammit was key in sending Morgan over just after the break and the young flyer caused further havoc as Atkinson ran in under the sticks. 

Gloucester captain Ludlow’s converted try made it 45-0 before Tom Seabrook saw yellow for a high tackle. 

The Cherry & Whites weren’t dented by the man disadvantage as scrum-half Meehan dived into the corner ahead of prop Ford-Robinson finishing on the opposite side.

Alemanno put extra gloss on the scoreline late on.
