Worcester Warriors snatched a 21-19 victory over an 11-man Bath side on Saturday afternoon at the Sixways stadium to boost their survival hopes.

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.

    How can Bath be down to 11?! First yellow was in the 83rd minute and the game finished in the 98th... That's 15 minutes!

      I didn’t see the game so don’t have any context, but the brew card wasn’t offside and a semi complete scrum isn’t a yellow either on face value. Difficult to know how many warnings were given but could be delays in between for front row changes that extended the length of normal time to be added?

        The scrum penalty should have gone the other way on second viewing. The Worcester tight head lost his feet and is flat on the floor
