Warriors keep hopes alive

Worcester Warriors travel to Paris next weekend with a slim chance of qualification from Amlin Challenge Cup Pool One following their 55-10 win over Crociati.

The Warriors brushed past the Italians by running in nine tries at Sixways to keep them within sight of Stade Francais, who won 34-13 at Bucharest Wolves.

Worcester must now beat Stade and deny the home team a bonus point to stand any chance of progressing to the knock-out stage for the first time in three years.

Full back Errie Claassens set the tone for the afternoon by crossing with just 71 seconds on the clock, and with further tries from centre Alex Grove and fly half Andy Goode, plus a second for Claassens, the Warriors had wrapped up a bonus point before half-time.

Two more tries in the opening 10 minutes of the second half from Tom Arscott and Josh Drauniniu increased the lead, and while Crociati managed to get on the scoresheet with a penalty try the Warriors continued to turn the screw.

Replacement hooker Ollie Hayes and lock Ben Gulliver ensured that the forwards contributed to the home scoring, but when Miles Benjamin went over with six minutes remaining not only had every Worcester back bagged a try but the Warriors had also secured their biggest win of the season so far.
