Olly Barkley kicked eight penalty goals as Bath edged their clash with Worcester

Olly Barkley kicked all of Bath's points including a last-minute penalty to snatch a dramatic 24-23 Aviva Premiership victory over Worcester at Sixways.

Bath had not led until the 65th minute but even when home lock James Percival responded by crashing over for the only try of the game soon after, it was the accuracy of Barkley that proved decisive.

By contrast Andy Goode, who scored six penalties, spurned a couple of kicks late on, including failing to convert Percival's 69th-minute score, which proved crucial when his opposite number landed the winning blow with the final kick of the game.
