Honours even in West Country derby

Honours even in West Country derby

Gloucester outscored Michael Foley’s men two tries to one, but it was the boot of Barkley that once again rescued try-less Bath.

Gloucester led 11-9 at the break, with a try from young England back-row James Forrester and two penalties from French fly-half Ludovic Mercier cancelling out Barkley’s two early penalties and a drop-goal from fly-half Chris Malone.

The second half again saw the Cherry and Whites dominate the try count, with England Sevens star Henry Paul continuing to improve his stock in the 15-man game with a try fifteen minutes into the half.

He converted his own score as well as slotting a penalty, but with Barkley booting a further four penalties to keep the scoreboard ticking over, the Recreation Ground crowd could at least take something from a game which they had looked like losing.
