Tom West – 8
Crucial try from close range. Scrummaged strongly in the first quarter. Full 80-minute shift and 17 tackles made.
Tommy Taylor – 6
Afternoon ended early with ankle injury.
Biyi Alo – 6
Replaced at half-time by Jeff Toomaga-Allen. Scrummaged well before uncontested scrums came in.
Joe Launchbury – 8
Captain’s shift. Shuddering hit on Tom de Glanville. Defended his own line with ferocity.
James Gaskell – 7
Great hit on Charlie Ewels to dislodge ball. Conceded a needless first-half penalty that resulted in a shot at goal.
Jack Willis – 9.5
Five turnovers to move to 38 for the season. 19 tackles. Carried hard, key run for West’s try. England star in waiting.
Thomas Young – N/A
Last two minutes before suffering a blow to the head.
Brad Shields – 7
Body on the line for cause and helped limit Bath’s all-star back row’s impact on the game.
Lima Sopoaga – 5
Kicked a penalty but his 24-minute contribution will be remembered for a pass that gifted Bath an early try.
Zach Kibirige – 7
Once more showcased his excellent ability under a high ball. Few opportunities to attack but always made metres.
Malakai Fekitoa – 7
Strong defensive shift that helped close out Bath’s strong backline.
Ryan Mills – 6
Steady shift from the centre without being eye-catching.
Marcus Watson – 6
Similarly to Mills, played his part but denied the chance to showcase his skills in attack.
Jacob Umaga – 7.5
Scored a lovely try and kicked to touch well after off day against Sale. Handling on occasions was loose but maintained attacking intent to the end.
Dan Robson – 8
Assist for Umaga’s try was classic Robson. Great game management with kicks from hand. A few loose passes, but edged England rival Ben Spencer in the scrum-half battle.
