Weston's dominance enabled them to score 5 to Bath's 1. Goals came from Edward who had a quality game, two more for S Coles, L Coles and Maloney.
There were many fine performances, Simmonds started to find his form in the latter part of the game and his distribution was accurate, Morgan showed maturity at times and glimpses of the player he could be, Rhian and Farrence showed much experience in times of trouble and Watkins swam his heart out but the man of the match, sponsored by the Woolpack, goes to S Coles for his goals despite not being able to last the game.
