Worcester Cavaliers suffer Aviva 'A' League drubbing at Sale Jets
WORCESTER Cavaliers suffered yet another chastening defeat in the Aviva ‘A’ League as they went down 42-0 to Sale Jets at Heywood Road last night.
On the back of 82-0 and 67-10 home drubbings to Gloucester United and Northampton Wanderers respectively, the youthful Cavaliers side made it a hat-trick of hammerings as they were out-classed by Sale.
The Worcester side, who included fit-again flanker Neil Best, never took a backwards step, but the home side ran in five tries to coast to victory.
Jordan Davies put the Jets ahead with a third-minute penalty, before both sides tried to run the ball across the width of the Heywood Road pitch.
Fly-half Davies nudged Jets further ahead with two more penalties, before the game's first try on 31 minutes, with Davies finishing off a sweeping backs' move.
Winger Royle went over for try two before the break, while the final attack of the first-half saw Worcester full-back Ben Howard collect a high ball and take off on a decent run until he was stopped in his tracks by Jacob.
Worcester's George Porter and Howard made good breaks from defence at the start of the second-half, but the impetus swiftly returned to the home side as Jennings and Doyle made significant surges before try three arrived after 65 minutes when Royle crossed.
Four minutes later, a James chip-and-chase led to a try from the supporting Jennings for the bonus point.
Worcester continued to try and make the most of limited possession, but with two minutes of play left, a strong drive from Flynn set up a try on the left for James, who converted his own effort.
