Bath start as they mean to go on

Bath established their Aviva Premiership title credentials with a comfortable 32-16 bonus-point victory against Leeds at a Headingley Carnegie.

Steve Meehan's men rarely hit the heights expected of them this season but they took their chances in clinical fashion and were certainly too good for their hosts.

Full-back Nick Abendanon touched down in the first half before Sam Vesty, Matt Carraro and captain Luke Watson added further scores after the break to secure the bonus point.

Leeds claimed a late consolation try through debutant hooker Steve Thompson.

16-32
