JAMIE Shillcock's second-half hat-trick condemned Bath to the bottom of the table as Worcester Warriors produced a stunning second-half display to end the Gallagher Premiership season on a high note.

Tom Dunn scored the bonus-point score for Bath early in the second-half but Warriors responded from going 17-27 down by scoring four tries of their own without response, including Shillcock's triple.

Bath thought they had got themselves back in the contest but a high tackle on Kyle Hatherell saw it chalked off and instead, Joe Batley sealed the deal before Shillcock's final try in the closing stages wrapped up the win.

Warriors led through Hatherell's early score but Bath's Will Muir scored twice whilst captain Ted Hill was in the sin bin to lead at the break but Gareth Simpson sparked the comeback soon after the restart, to see Worcester make it a positive end to the campaign.

It could well have been a relegation decider had the league not been ringfenced but as it is, the match still held significance.

A number of players were playing the final game for the club before departing, in particular the centurion trio of Ethan Waller, Sam Lewis and Niall Annett.

It was the perfect start when Hatherell powered his way over the try-line in the fourth minute.

But Bath were dangerous in attack and were 19-10 up at the break after wing Will Muir scored twice and tighthead Will Stuart picked a gap in the defence, all whilst Ted Hill was in the sin bin.

Warriors responded effectively, however, as Shillcock and Duhan van der Merwe combined superbly and scrum-half Simpson got a boot rather than a hand to a pass and followed up to score.

But Bath scored their fourth soon after to stretch the lead to ten points following Tom Dunn's try.

Warriors faced the gloom of finishing the season bottom of the table but Shillcock scored two in three minutes to ease those fears and edge ahead.

A key decision then went Warriors’ way when Bath had their captain Charlie Ewels sin-binned for a shoulder-to-head tackle on Hatherell.

Not only were Bath reduced to 14-men for ten minutes but they also had a try disallowed for the offence which came earlier in the attack.

Instead it was Warriors who sealed the win when Joe Batley charged down an attempted clearance close to the line and dotted down.

Shillcock’s hat-trick dashed Bath’s hopes of a losing bonus point and came after another superb sustained attack with winger van der Merwe, who was a menacing presence all afternoon, drew two tacklers and slipped an inside pass to the full-back.

Fans were able to celebrate with the players and coaches after the game on the Sixways turf, as well as say their goodbyes to the likes of Annett, Lewis and Waler, all of whom received the best reception following the game.
