Amlin Challenge Cup Pool Two: Bath 63-0 Mogliano

Matt Banahan

Bath trounced Mogliano to extend their lead at the top of Pool Two.

The hosts had the bonus point wrapped up inside 30 minutes, with a Matt Garvey brace and further scores by Matt Banahan, George Ford and a penalty try handing them a 29-0 lead at the break.

Bath continued to dominate after the interval, running in a further six tries to complete an emphatic win.

Banahan took his tally to four, while Carl Fearns and two tries by Olly Woodburn completed the scoring.

Mogliano's failure to register a single point means they have scored fewer than any other team in this season's Challenge Cup and leaves them bottom of their pool.

Bath head coach Mike Ford:

"I'm pleased after what's happened over the last two weeks.

"It was a solid performance over there and I thought we played a little bit better at home.

"It was a good opportunity for us to keep playing - no matter what the score was."
