  4. Full-time

    Bath 18-24 Wasps

    A fifth successive win for Wasps for the first time in this competition since the 2012-13 season.

    It's another defeat for Bath, but they do come away with the losing bonus point.

  5. Try (Mafi, missed con Homer)

    Bath 18-24 Wasps

    And Bath get that losing bonus point score from a catch-and-drive. 

    Japan international Amanaki Mafi the man who touches it down after the maul rumbles over.

    Tom Homer off target with the conversion.

  6. Bath 13-24 Wasps

    Final minute at The Rec.

    Bath have a line-out on Wasps' five-metre line for a consolation try.

  7. Worrying news for England?

    FT: Worcester 31-23 Sale

    Sale forward Josh Beaumont, who has been on the fringe of the England side during the Six Nations, was forced off with an injury at Worcester...

    Josh Beaumont

    As mentioned earlier, Bath centre Ollie Devoto was also taken off at half-time at The Rec with concussion which could rule him out of the match against Ireland next week.

  8. Bath 13-24 Wasps

    Bath going in search of a score here in the final three minutes to claim a losing bonus point.

    Wasps back to full strength with the return of Thomas Young from the bin and they are sniffing a bonus point try to go with a fifth win in succession.

  9. Bath 13-24 Wasps

    Big burst to the Bath line by Christian Wade, showing all the pace that we know he possesses.

    He's brought down 10 metres short. Wasps shift it left, but they spurn the fourth try as Charles Piutau's pass to Frank Halai is fumbled.

    Should've been a hat-trick for the winger in the closing six minutes.

  10. Penalty (Gopperth)

    Bath 13-24 Wasps

    Into the last 10 minutes at The Rec and Wasps have got some of their earlier lead back after Ross Batty is penalised for coming in at the side.

    Bit of a delay before Jimmy Gopperth kicks the three points as captain George Smith seems to have had the decision taken out of his hands. He wanted to go for the corner, but referee Tom Foley says the tee was already bought onto the field.

  11. Full-time

    Worcester 31-23 Sale

    Carl Kirwan

    Worcester's 13-game, four-month wait for a win is over!

    Three tries and a 16-point haul from fly-half Tom Heathcote has secured four points for Dean Ryan's side who are up to 10th.

    Sale take a try bonus point after scoring four tries.

  12. Full-time

    Saracens 25-12 Gloucester

    Ben Ransom

    An immense second-half display from a 14-man Saracens side sees them bounce back from that huge loss to Wasps last week with a gritty victory over Gloucester.

    Ben Ransom grabbed the game's only try inside four minutes and while Schalk Brits saw red on 29 minutes, the Premiership leaders came up with a memorable win thanks to six penalties from Charlie Hodgson and a huge display from the Sarries pack.

  13. Try (Homer, con Homer)

    Bath 13-21 Wasps

    Last 15 minutes and Bath have finally woken up in this one.

    Aided by an earlier yellow card to Thomas Young, they capitalise on the man advantage and Tom Homer runs on to Matt Banahan's grubber just in time.

    Homer then adds the extras to his own try off the tee.

  14. Saracens 25-12 Gloucester

    Surely that is game done now. Charlie Hodgson lands a sixth penalty for Saracens with three minutes remaining at Allianz Park.

  15. Try (Haley, missed con)

    Worcester 31-23 Sale

    Mike Haley's burst into the line and crashes over for Sale for his second of the afternoon.

    That is a try bonus point for Sale but with Cipriani's missed conversion, his fourth from five, they're not on for a losing bonus point,

    90 seconds left.

  16. Worcester 31-18 Sale

    Chris Cusiter

    Just over three minutes left and Worcester are heading to a first win in 13 games as Nick Schonert jogs on so they have a full complement of 15 men.

    Sale's best hope is a losing bonus point - a fourth try will give them another point too with a try bonus.

  17. Try (McIntyre, missed con Gopperth)

    Bath 6-21 Wasps

    That could well be that at The Rec. A third try of the afternoon for Wasps through prop Simon McIntyre.

    Jimmy Gopperth the man who engineered it originally and his offload to Christian Wade almost led to the score, but after he was held up, McIntyre was there to put it down.

    Gopperth misses the conversion.

  18. Saracens 22-12 Gloucester

    Nine minutes remaining and Saracens have their biggest lead of the contest, Charlie Hodgson sending a fifth penalty through the sticks.

    A staggering display at scrum time has been the key to this second-half performance against Gloucester. Remember, this is a Saracens side that have been a man down since the 29-minute mark.

  19. Bath 6-16 Wasps

    Bath so close to getting the try that would've pulled them right back into this one.

    Jimmy Gopperth wrestles possession back for Wasps from five metres out and the visitors can break clear quickly back up to halfway as we enter the final quarter of this one.

  20. Worcester 31-18 Sale

    Danny Cipriani

    Sale, with the man advantage, were unable to nudge over from successive scrums as they piled pressure on the Worcester try line.

    The Sharks spin it out to the backs but it results in a knock-on and Worcester have a relieving scrum where they will hope to get the ball upfield.

    Six minutes left.
