Gloucester Rugby beat Bath 64-0 in a record victory in the West Country derby, scoring 10 tries against the Blue, Black and Whites.
It was a phenomenal and historic afternoon with Gloucester Rugby claiming the bonus point win over Bath.
Gloucester Rugby had in fact secured the bonus point by half time and took a 24-0 lead into the break thanks to scores from Chris Harris, two from Louis Rees-Zammit and a phenomenal finish from Santiago Carreras to end the first half.
The derby started with Bath’s Valeriy Morozov getting yellow carded for a high tackle and it wasn’t long before they had a second yellow when Max Clark was yellow carded for tripping Charlie Chapman in the build up to our first score.
Chris Harris managed to get over the line after a few false starts from the Cherry and Whites.
Louis Rees-Zammit then got over for two scores with the second being a true classic. The winger chipped the ball through twice, placing a hand on it as it bounced over the line to secure the try.
To finish the first half, Santiago Carreras picked up a Mark Atkinson offload to race over in the corner.
In the second half, Ben Morgan got over the line immediately thanks to a inside ball from Louis Rees-Zammit.
Mark Atkinson, Lewis Ludlow, Ben Meehan, Jamal Ford-Robinson and Matias Alemanno all got over for tries, cementing the historic win over Bath.
Key moment – Jamal Ford-Robinson’s score
Fan favourite Jamal Ford-Robinson scored a fantastic try which any winger would be proud of. The replacement prop received the ball in space and showed true pace to get over the line to finish it off, much to the delight of the Kingsholm crowd.
