Vesty leads Bath to victory

It was the Sam Vesty show at Kingston Park as the Bath fly-half rattled up 17 points from four penalties, a drop goal and a conversion and engineered the game's only try as his side rumbled to a comfortable 22-9 Premiership victory over Newcastle.

Bath's pack dominated the game and Newcastle did themselves no favours by conceding lots of penalties, mainly at the breakdown, and an early try from Matt Carraro from which they never really recovered.

Three first-half penalties from Jimmy Gopperth was all Newcastle could manage.
