Bath breeze past Harlequins
27 Mar 2010
Butch James featured in Bath’s 24-13 victory over the Harlequins at The Rec on Saturday.
The Springbok flyhalf had a quiet game by his own standards and captain Michael Claassens was in trouble with the ref when he tackled Quins’ Danny Care illegally. The former Bok No 9 was sin-binned but, fortunately for Bath, the temporary disadvantage only cost his side six points.
Luke Watson had a strong game at No 8 with some powerful runs and clever offloads. Bath outscored Quins three tries to one.
South African-born Hendre Fourie, who has his sights set on playing for England, was on the losing side as Leeds went down 19-0 to Gloucester. Brian Mujati played 48 minutes in Northampton’s 14-9 win over Wasps.
In Celtic League action, Jean de Villiers scored a try in Munster’s 27-19 win against Glasgow. CJ van der Linde came off the bench in Leinster’s 17-14 victory over Connacht.
