Worcester run riot against Madrid

Worcester Warriors ran riot at the Sixways Stadium, ending their poor run of form with an eight-try demolition of Olympus Madrid.

England Sevens star Matthew Cox scored a hat-trick, Jake Abbott bagged a brace and Sam Tuitupou, Chris Pennell and Greg King also crossed to see the hosts to a 54-3 victory.

The result ended a run of eight games without a win for Worcester, who are already out of contention in Pool Two.

Despite Abbott’s early score, Madrid were still in the game until shortly before half-time. But Tuitupou crossed and Abbott added his second to put Worcester in command at the break.

The second-half belonged to Cox, who ran in a hat-trick, while Pennell and King added late scores as the Warriors romped home.
