Worcester Warriors hold off London Welsh

Worcester Warriors beat London Welsh 13-6 in a tight Aviva Premiership match held at Sixways Stadium on Friday evening.


The first half was a close affair as Gordon Ross slotted two penalties and former England fly half Andy Goode landed two penalties as well.


The teams went in for half time level on 6 points each as the four penalties were the only points scored.


Ross missed a penalty early on in the second half but Worcester got the breakthrough fifteen minutes into the half when Semisi Taulava scored what turned out to be the only try of the match.


Neither team were able to break away from the other even though they tried to change matters by bringing on most of their replacements through the second half.


London Welsh had a couple of opportunites to draw closer but Gordon Ross’ missed penalty in the 75th minute was his second miss of the half.


The result lifts Worcester to eighth in the Premiership table but just four points ahead of London Welsh.
