Bath edge out Leeds

A spectacular Nick Abendanon try straight after half-time helped Bath clinch a 16-13 win over Leeds Carnegie - their second success in eight days.

Abendanon latched onto a cleverly-disguised inside pass from fly-half Butch James and outpaced the cover, rolling over to touch down as he was caught on the line. Olly Barkley converted and added three penalties.

Steve Thompson scored a second-half try for the visitors, with Ceiron Thomas kicking five points and Scott Barrow adding a drop-goal.
