Worcester Warriors thrash Italian outfit Rovigo 90-3 in Amlin Challenge Cup
WARRIORS re-wrote their European record book for the second week running with a 90-3 demolition of Italian minnows Rovigo.
Worcester scored 14 tries at Sixways - one more than the record 13 they managed against Gernika last weekend - while Joe Carlisle's 30-point haul was an individual record, surpassing Shane Drahm's 21.
David Lemi scorched over for four tries to match the record Rico Gear set against Gran Parma.
However, the terribly one-sided contest, which also saw tries for Andy Short (3), Carlisle (2), Matt Kvesic (2), Errie Claassens, Sam Betty and Craig Gillies, raises questions about the future of the tournament.
Warriors head coach Richard Hill said: "I was pleased with that - we had a spell at the end of the first-half when it went a bit quiet, but we spoke about that at half-time and they responded with a superb second-half.
"This group could come down to points difference and we want to get a home tie in the quarter-finals."
