PLAYER RAT­INGS

Bath Chronicle - - SPORT -

6 Jac­ques van Rooyen Scrum­maged pretty well in the first half and af­ter com­ing back on in added time when the yel­low cards were be­ing bran­dished.

6 Tom Dunn Made plenty of tack­les, didn’t have much of an at­tack­ing im­pact.

7 Henry Thomas Scrum­maged well, won a jackal penalty and was keen to get his hands on the ball again. Stead­ied the ship at the end along with the other front-row starters.

5 Char­lie Ewels Missed a num­ber of tack­les and was quiet be­fore tak­ing a heavy blow to the head.

6 Dave Attwood A big de­fen­sive shift but gave away a cou­ple of penal­ties. Didn’t get much ball.

6 Tom El­lis Didn’t touch the ball be­fore be­ing re­placed with what looked like an arm in­jury.

5 Fran­cois Louw Very quiet com­pared to the last cou­ple of weeks. Worces­ter did a very good job of keep­ing him away from the ball at the break­down.

7 Zach Mercer Bath’s liveli­est for­ward. Made 82m, scored a try and was high on the tackle count. Pos­si­bly tried too hard at times. Some­times team­mates were in bet­ter po­si­tions for the pass.

6 Will Chud­ley (c) Didn’t have snap of pre­vi­ous weeks, but Worces­ter’s gang tack­ling and coun­ter­ruck­ing meant ball was a lot slower. Box-kick­ing hit and miss.

7 Fred­die Burns Three or four nice touch-fin­ders and a cou­ple of pin­point cross­field kicks. Per­fect from the tee. Some kicks from hand weren’t as well placed and strug­gled to get play­ers out­side fir­ing.

7 Cooper Vuna Looked lively when the ball came his way. Took a cross­field kick and com­bined well with James Wil­son when the full-back thought he had scored in the first half.

7 Jamie Roberts Some big car­ries and big hits again from the in­side cen­tre.

6 Max Wright A quiet one from the 21-year-old, who rarely touched the ball but made his tack­les.

7 Semesa Roko­duguni Ran his heart out and had some joy but was well shack­led by the Worces­ter de­fence.

6 James Wil­son Looked good with ball in hand but his punts often found Worces­ter hands.

Re­place­ments 2 Ross Batty – Sent off. Bath had a great at­tack­ing po­si­tion when he neck-rolled Sam Lewis. 5 Lu­cas Noguera – Sin-binned in added time. 4 Max Lahiff – Knocked on, gave away penal­ties and sin-binned for killing the ball. 5 Rhys Pri­est­land – Missed sev­eral tack­les and looked rusty with ball in hand. 5 Aled Brew – Put in some big hits. His last one was from an off­side po­si­tion as Worces­ter looked for the win­ning try and he was shown a yel­low card. El­liott Stooke – 6, Josh Bayliss – 6.
