Joe Simpson, Tom Varndell, Ben Jacobs and Dominic Waldouck crossed for the Aviva Premiership club while Dave Walder kicked 18 points to lift them into second place, two points behind the champions.

Glasgow breached the goalline on two occasions through Ruaridh Jackson and Dougie Hall, but failed to secure a losing bonus-point with a late assault.


Biarritz maintained their unbeaten start in Pool Four of the Heineken Cup with an emphatic 35-15 bonus-point home victory over Ulster.

Scrum-half Dimitri Yachvili was the architect for last season's finalists with a 15-point tally, including three penalties and three conversions. Wing Takudzwa Ngwenya grabbed a brace of second half-tries while Manuel Carizza and Sylvain Marconnet also crossed to seal maximum points for the French giants.

The result left big-spending Ulster empty-handed despite late consolation scores from Andrew Trimble and Stephen Ferris.


Leicester took control of Pool Five in the Heineken Cup as five second-half tries saw them ruthlessly brush aside the Scarlets with a bonus-point 46-10 win at Welford Road.

The hosts led 13-10 after an absorbing first half thanks to a Martin Castrogiovanni try and eight points from Toby Flood. The Scarlets had grabbed the first try of the game, a lovely score from Morgan Stoddart, with Stephen Jones adding the conversion and a penalty.

But the Welsh side were blown away as Ben Youngs, Thomas Waldrom and Tom Croft went over within 10 minutes of the resumption, with further tries from flanker Croft and centre Matty Smith completing the scoring.

A late flurry of points saw Perpignan to a first victory in Pool Five of the Heineken Cup, though the 35-14 scoreline was harsh on a well-matched Treviso side.

The teams were locked at 14-14 with 20 minutes remaining but the hosts broke free with a penalty try before Gerrie Britz and Damien Chouly crossed in the closing stages.

Jerome Porical and Gavin Hume made the early scores for Perpignan, with Tommaso Benvenuti touching down twice for the visitors. Porical added three conversions, with David Mele and Kevin Boulogne also on target, while Luke McLean had two successful kicks for Treviso.
