GLOUCESTER’S LATE SURGE DOWN BATH
PREMIERSHIP WRAP: OWEN WILLIAMS PROVED ICE RUNS THROUGH HIS VEINS AS HE NAILED AN 88TH-MINUTE CONVERSION TO HAND GLOUCESTER RUGBY THE WEST COUNTRY BRAGGING RIGHTS AT BATH RUGBY.
Rhys Priestland’s penalty gave his side a slender 8-5 lead at the interval after Willi Heinz and Semesa Rokoduguni traded impressive early tries.
The other fixture of the day saw Leicester Tigers made it five Premiership Rugby victories in a row with a stunning 30-13 away win at Newcastle Falcons.
Bath 21-22 Gloucester
While Rokoduguni again cancelled out Heinz in the second half to hand Bath the lead, it was a grandstand finish as the Cherry & Whites piled forwards in search of a match-winning try and up popped Ed Slater to score it with the clock deep into the red.
