Bath finished the match with three yellow cards and one red, allowing Worcester winger Bryce Heem to stroll over in the last play of the match to level the scores, before fly half Duncan Weir scored the match-winning conversion.

Ross Batty was the first man to leave the pitch for Bath, conceding a red card for a neck-roll in the 63rd minute. Remarkably the other three yellow cards all came in overtime, starting with replacement front rower Max Lahiff for an infringement at the breakdown in the 83rd minute.

Next up was another replacement front rower, Lucas Noguera Paz for collapsing the scrum in the 87th minute before Aled Brew was binned for being offside in the 94th minute.

This remarkable victory leaves Worcester four points clear of Newcastle, who currently occupy the relegation spot at the bottom of the table. The two sides are due to meet on Sunday 3 March in Newcastle.
