As part of our way of catching up on the past few weeks rugby, we bring you the highlights of this tight encounter between Worcester Warriors and Bristol from a few weeks back.
It was a Guinness Premiership weekend that produced a few nailbiters that went right down to the wire with this match in particular being decided by a late Ed Barnes penalty kick.
The match ended with a 20-20 draw, denying the Warriors a victory they should have secured given their superior possession and field position.
A quick lineout caught Worcester by surprise, allowing David Lemi to jink towards the 22-metre line, where he was stopped by a high tackle.
However, Mike Ruddock, the Worcester director of rugby, said that some of his players felt the decision was a little harsh.
But we must respect it as we had a quality referee and we should never have allowed them that quick lineout, he said. I felt we were the better side, although it was a really good battle and we knew Bristol would be scrapping for their lives.
Well do what we can to recap other matches that have taken place over the past few weeks, so please be patient, and send through your requests or contributions where possible.
