Worcester run riot against Burcuresti

Worcester Warriors smashed their Amlin Challenge Cup Pool 1 rivals Bucharest Wolves 57 -13 at Sixways Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Worcester ran riot in the match and outscored their opponents by eight tries to one.

Worcester Warriors ran in nine tries as discipline cost Bucharest Wolves dearly
at Sixways.

The victory sees Worcester maintain the pressure on Stade Francais ahead of
their crucial Round Six clash.

Florin Vlaicu booted the visitors into an unlikely lead in Worcester but the
home side quickly turned the screw and earned a penalty try which Joe Carlisle
duly converted.

Marcel Garvey and Nile Dacres touched down in quick succession for Worcester
before Vlaicu landed his second penalty to bring the scores to 19-6.

Former England wing Garvey scorched away for his second try on 32 minutes as
the Wolves had to deal with a second player in the sin-bin.

Aleki Luitui crashed over for another Warriors score shortly after the interval
and Chris Pennell quickly got in on the action.

Valentin Popirlan grabbed a try for Bucharest as the Wolves continued fighting
despite having two more players sent to the sin-bin in the second-half.

But Worcester finished with a bang with Josh Drauniniu, Miles Benjamin and
Jake Abbott all crossing for scores.
