Mills drops in for vic­tory

Sunday Express - - SPORT - By Neil Fissler

WORCES­TER are five points clear at the top of Pool Two with just one game re­main­ing after a 20-18 win at OSPREYS.

Ryan Mills’ last-minute drop goal sealed vic­tory for the War­riors, who trailed 15-7 at half-time.

CON­NACHT beat SALE 20-18 in Gal­way to pull level with them at the top of Pool Three. The hosts led 17-0 at half-time but needed David Hor­witz’s late penalty to seal vic­tory after Sale ral­lied.

HAR­LEQUINS scored four first-half tries as the 31-20 win over GRENO­BLE sent them top of Pool Five.

Nick Fen­ton-Wells grabbed a hat-trick as BRIS­TOL thrashed ENI­SEI-STM 65-9 to go second in Pool Four. ROB BAX­TER has urged his EX­ETER team to “just go for it” when they face French cham­pi­ons CAS­TRES at Sandy Park.

The Chiefs’ hopes of reaching the Heineken Cham­pi­ons Cup’s last eight hinge on them win­ning their fi­nal two Pool Five games. Di­rec­tor of rugby Bax­ter (left) said: “I told the lads if they go to Mun­ster (on Satur­day) with some­thing to play for they are ef­fec­tively in the last 16 of Europe.”

SARA­CENS will progress if they beat Pool Three ri­vals LYON and then GLAS­GOW next Satur­day. Glas­gow, though, could progress as one of the three best run­ners-up if they see off CARDIFF BLUES.
