The visitors led 9-6 at half-time after penalties from Stephen Donald (2) and Ollie Devoto.

But the hosts turned the game around in the second half thanks to tries from Danny Care and Ugo Monye.


RUGBY: Gloucester lose at Sale

In rugby tonight, Gloucester's hopes of reaching the Premiership play-offs suffered a setback as they lost at Sale.

The Cherry and Whites would have moved above Northampton and Harlequins into third place with a victory. But they only had three penalties from Freddie Burns to show for their night's work as they lost by 32 points to nine.

Bath crash out of the European Challenge Cup

Bath's hopes of winning the European Challenge Cup - a competition they last won 5 years ago - were dashed by a strong Stade Francais team.

Star of the show was Fijian Waisea Vuidarvuwalu who scored two first half tries and had a hand in the others.

The French side led 20-3 at the break, so it was important for Bath to get an early second-half score. They did - from a penalty try.

But Stade weren't going to let the hosts back into the game. Hugo Bonneval restored their cushion, and the same player killed the game off when he crossed the line again just two minutes later.

The scoreline was made more respectable when Michael Claassens and Jack Cuthbert scored two late tries, but it's the Frenchmen who go through to the semi-final.


Yeovil hope to make the play offs

Yeovil Town are hoping to improve their chances of making the play offs.

The Glovers are hosting Shrewsbury at Huish Park tomorrow with League One's top scorer Paddy Madden looking to add to his tally of 22 goals so far. They'll be marking their tenth anniversary of their entry into the Football League. Manager Gary Johnson believes it's possible to make the next step.
