Report: Bath Rugby U18s 77-17 Bristol Bears U18s

Bristol Academy U18s were overpowered by local rivals Bath in a one-sided affair at Wootton Bassett RFC on Saturday.

The visitors conceded eleven tries in a 77-17 defeat in the Academy U18s league to remain without a win in the competition so far.

In an evenly contested opening period, both sides exchanged scores, before Bath added a quickfire double before the interval to go in ahead at 35-12.

But, in a one-sided second half, Bristol struggled to cope with Bath’s dominance, as the hosts added seven further scores, while the Bears crossed for a consolation effort.

Next up, Bristol travel to London Irish in the penultimate round of the U18s league.
