Report: Worcester Warriors 26-30 Bristol Rugby

Bristol Rugby ended Worcester Warriors unbeaten home run with a 30-26 victory at Sixways.

Auguy Slowik, Charlie Amesbury and Ben Mosses touched down on Saturday as the visitors secured top spot in the Greene King IPA Championship.

Auguy Slowik handed Bristol the lead on his return to the starting line-up, dabbing down in the corner inside ten minutes.

But Worcester responded immediately through Max Stelling, who latched onto Ryan Lamb’s offload and raced in to level proceedings.

Lamb’s well-struck three-pointer edged the Warriors ahead at 10-7 and the fly half added another penalty goal on the stroke of half-time.

Worcester flew out of the traps at the beginning of the second period and extended their advantage when Cooper Vuna powered his way across the whitewash, while Lamb converted from the angle.

Nicky Robinson and Ryan Lamb traded penalties, before Cooper Vuna was sin-binned, reducing the home side to fourteen men.

Bristol reduced the deficit to 23-17 as Ben Mosses latched onto a short ball to carve an opening in the Warriors midfield and dab down for a converted try.

And the visitors turned the game on its head when Charlie Amesbury collected Nicky Robinson’s long pass to canter over in the corner to put Bristol ahead by a single point.

After Jonathan Thomas became the second Warriors man to see yellow, Lamb and Robinson exchanged three pointers to take an enthralling encounter to 26-27 with two minutes left on the clock.

Nicky Robinson’s late penalty goal sealed the victory as Bristol secured top spot in the Greene King IPA Championship.
