Bath boosted by bonus-point win

Michael Claassens and Tom Biggs each scored a brace of tries as Bath continued their quest for a top-six place in the Aviva Premiership with a 36-17 bonus-point victory over Worcester.

With Matt Banahan grabbing the fifth try, Bath celebrated their sixth win out of seven in all competitions and are mounting their customary late charge for Heineken Cup qualification.

And they still have another route to Europe's premier tournament through the LV= Cup, meeting Leicester at the Rec next Friday night.

Worcester, who scored tries through Tom Arscott and Miles Benjamin, battled gamely but lost the match in a 12-minute spell in the first half when they conceded three tries.
