    Sunday's Premiership action

    Christian Wade

    There's two more games to come tomorrow to cap off the weekend.

    Here's what's on offer (both 15:00 GMT kick-offs):

    • Sale v Wasps

    Make sure to join for all the action from around 14:45 GMT on Sunday. Until then.... 

  2. Bath have just enough in victory

    Bath 22-12 Harlequins

    Rhys Priestland's boot proved vital for Bath on an afternoon of disjointed rugby from both sides.

    There were tries for Harlequins for Tim Visser and Marland Yarde but the boot of the Welsh fly-half is what eventually made the difference for the hosts at The Rec.

  3. Short's hat-trick bags Chiefs a bonus

    Worcester 32-48 Exeter

    Exeter certainly turned things around after a bits and pieces first half against Worcester.

    Trailing 18-17 at the break, they ran away with the game after a yellow card for Alafoti Faosiliva cost the hosts.

    Three tries in all for Short and seven in total for Exeter, but a brave Worcester battled all the way to the end and scored four tries of their own.

  4. Pietersen marks return with double as Tigers trash Bristol

    Leicester 50-17 Bristol

    There were star performances across the board for Leicester Tigers, headlined by the returning duo of JP Pietersen and Telusa Veainu.

    The way they linked up for the second of Pietersen's tries is one to behold.

    A tough day for Bristol, it must be said as they lose ground in the fight to avoid relegation.

    JP Pietersen

    JP Pietersen marks his first Leicester appearance for 11 weeks with two tries in the Tigers' rout of bottom side Bristol.

  7. Post update

    Well, what an afternoon of action. Reaction on its way...

  8. Full-time

    Bath 22-12 Harlequins

    Bath weren't at their very best today but their bench made their mark on the fixture and Rhys Priestland's accuracy off the tee proved to be the difference. 

    Harlequins played their part in the game but will leave The Rec with nothing. 

  9. Full-time

    Leicester 50-17 Bristol

    Leicester run in eight tries against Bristol on the way to their biggest win of the season and arguably their finest display of the season.

    It was an exhausting game of attacking rugby. And right until the end, Premiership bottom side Bristol pushed the hosts, with the television match official ruling out another late score.

  10. Penalty (Priestland)

    Bath 22-12 Harlequins

    Rhys Priestland has packed his kicking boots today and as Harlequins' discipline strays again it looks like Bath will take the W at The Rec. 

  11. Full-time

    Worcester 32-48 Exeter

    Ryan Mills' trusty boot slotted over that conversion from Willison's late score as Worcester take what might end up being a vital point come the end of the season.

    But, it's James Short who will take the headlines with his hat-trick of tries in a bonus-point win for Exeter which sees them draw level on points with Saracens.

  12. Try (Willison, con Lamb)

    Worcester 32-48 Exeter

    Worcester may well have been second best in this second half but they are going to take a bonus point from this one.

    A fourth try for them comes right at the death through centre Jackson Willison.

  13. Penalty (Priestland)

    Bath 19-12 Harlequins

    Harlequins have just been caught short by their discipline and they're made to pay as Rhys Priestland slots his fourth penalty of the afternoon. 

    With just five minutes to go will this cushion be enough for the home side? 

  14. Try (Short, missed con Slade)

    Worcester 25-48 Exeter

    And it's exactly the same story at Sixways.

    It's a seventh of the afternoon for Exeter and a hat-trick for winger James Short. Henry Slade misses the chance to bring up the half-century though as he misses the conversion.

  15. Try (Ford-Robinson, con Woodward)

    Leicester 50-17 Bristol

    Tries, tries, tries. It is raining the things at Welford Road.

    This time it is Bristol that get over the line. Owen Williams has a kick charged down and Jamal Ford-Robinson touches down. 

    Jamal Ford-Robinson of Bristol Rugby scores a try
  16. Try (Bateman, con Williams)

    Leicester 50-10 Bristol

    The Leicester forwards have been in roaring form all day and that latest try is testament to everything they have done.

    Greg Bateman goes over under the power of a catch-and-drive from a line-out.

  17. Try (Clark, con Priestland)

    Bath 16-12 Harlequins

    Finally Bath gain a little bit of cohesive possession and work their way over the line. 

    Rhys Priestland's break gets them up field before Kahn Fotuali'i gets the tempo high and Max Clark takes a hard line through to score. 

    Again Priestland adds the extras and the hosts are back ahead after 64 minutes. 

  18. Post update

    Bath 9-12 Harlequins

    Harlequins are enjoying plenty of possession right now and are looking the more dangerous of the two sides. That said, Kahn Fotuali'i is proving to be a menace the breakdown and giving his side opportunities to work from. 

  19. Try (Campagnaro, con Slade)

    Worcester 25-43 Exeter

    An absolute try-fest at Sixways. You can't take your eyes off it.

    It's a sixth try for Exeter from Michele Campagnaro, but the move was all about Henry Slade.

    He's switched to fly-half after Gareth Steenson went off injured and manage to carve open Worcester's defence before off-loading to Campagnaro.

  20. Try (Heem, con Mills)

    Worcester 25-36 Exeter

    Bryce Heem

    Worcester still fighting in this match after a nightmare 10 minutes.

    Bryce Heem crashes over for their third try after a great bit of work from Francois Hougaard.

    Ryan Mills adds the conversion.
