Bristol 22-17 Worcester
Bristol's David Lemi
Lemi's two tries helped Bristol edge to victory

Bristol (12) 22
Try: Lemi (2), Cox
Cons: Gray (2)
DGs: Gray

Worcester (17) 17
Try: Tucker, Delport
Pens: Drahm
Cons: Drahm (2)

Two tries by David Lemi sent 14-man Worcester to defeat at Bristol, as Craig Gillies was sent off late on.

A Worcester penalty in a threatening position was turned over after Gillies stamped on Joe El-Abd, who was yellow carded for holding his ankle in a ruck.

Lemi and Sam Cox scored to give Bristol an early lead but tries by Mark Tucker and Thinus Delport gave Worcester hope.

The lead given by Lemi's second and a drop goal by David Gray looked perilously slim until Gillies saw red.


  • Worcester director of rugby John Brain:
  • "We mauled it forward and we had an advantage so it's extremely unfortunate to give that up because I felt that we could snatch the game.

    "I don't think that we deserved to win this game.

    "We did pretty well but I think Bristol controlled possession and position better than us."

    Replacements: Linklater, Clarke, Hohneck, Budgett, Nicholls, Strange, Lima.

    Replacements: Windo, Lutui, Blaze, Quinnell, Runciman, Lombard, Best.
