A number of Bath Rugby players were on international duty over the weekend. Here’s how they got on…
England 30-6 Australia – Twickenham Stadium
England recorded their second successive victory of the Autumn Internationals, as they swept aside Australia at Twickenham. Bath Rugby's Jonathan Joseph, Sam Underhill and Anthony Watson all played from the start, whilst Semesa Rokoduguni was named among the replacements.
With less than 10 minutes left on the clock, Joseph put the result out of Australia’s reach, as the centre latched on to Danny Care’s clever kick over the top to score his 17th try for his country.
Eddie Jones’ side added a further two tries through Jonny May and Care to complete a resounding win for England.
Wales 13-6 Georgia – Principality Stadium
Bath Rugby’s Rhys Priestland marked his return to the international scene with a composed performance at fly-half for Wales. The playmaker scored two penalties and a conversion, as the hosts managed to fight off the challenge of a dogged Georgian side.
Priestland’s Club teammate Taulupe Faletau also made a brief cameo appearance, with the back rower helping to close out the game in the final five minutes.
France 17-18 South Africa – Stade de France
Francois Louw was back in action for South Africa, as the Springboks bounced back from a heavy defeat against Ireland to beat France in Paris. Tries from Dillyn Leyds and Jesse Kriel, along with eight points from the boot of Handre Pollard gave South Africa their sixth straight win over the French.
Don't forget, you can see all this world-class talent and more back on the big stage in April at The Clash. Tickets available now here
