Europe: Gallagher and Guinness WRaps, T14 to finish yet

Gallagher, Guinness: By the Numbers

Gallagher Premiership

2             instances of drawn scores at 10s and 17s before Gloucester 8man, Ben Morgan, grounded at ’75 to provide the crowd at Kingsholm much joy in victory over league-leading Exeter Chiefs, 24-17;

4             trys for Wasps on the road at Ashton Gardens meant the 5-pointer in the win over host, Bristol Bears, 29-22, and Hornets are keeping a playoff spot in view;

9             trys for Northampton, including braces by 9, Cobus Reinach, and flyer, Tom Collins, as Saints held a clinic at Franklin’s Gardens; 32-10 margin at the break didn’t get any better for Sale as home team stormed for 32 more in the second stanza and the 67-20 result;

10           for Bath 10, Rhys Priestland on 2-and-2 from his shoe and Bath got the 5-pointer at the Recreation Ground over Newcastle Falcons, 30-13;

5             points, 10-5, the halftime lead squandered by visiting Leicester Tigers and a comeback Saracens put 28 aboard in the last 40 with their defense standing up to claim the bonus-point win at Barnet Copthall, 33-10;

80          points and 12 trys in all between the XVs in a lively match at the Stoop; Quins were counting better than a-point-a-minute and up 21-0 by the 18th, before Worcester got aboard on a grounding by 2, Jack Singleton, and its conversion by 10, Duncan Weir; 4, 1st-40, 2-pointers by just-turned 20 years old Harlequins 10, Marcus Smith in the 47-33 victory;

Guinness Pro 14

2             trys for Edinburgh winger, Jimmy Johnstone, converted by 10, Jaco Van der Walt, in the 1st-40 kept Dragons in sight as the lads went to lockers after 40 at Murrayfield with home team 3 points adrift, 14-17; but a Duhan Van der Merwe brace in the second stanza capped an Edinburgh return after shutting down the Dragons fire in that last 40 for 34-17 victory;

7             trys for Munster, 3 scored during 3, 10-minute assessments periods for the BadBoy Kings as homeboys powered by the Monarchs at Thomond Park, 45-nil;

8             the measure for Ulster on the trot in a soggy Swansea and sfa for their hosts as Ospreys suffered the ignominy of 0-8, moist, unhappiness at home in the Liberty; zeroes at the half;

21           points in the first 21 minutes meant 21-nil the Leinster lead on the road before Zebre owned the last 10 minutes of the 1st-40 for 21 and 19 midpoint tallies at Sergio Lanfranchi; but travelers got 3 more in the second stanza against only 1 for their hosts for 40-24, 5-point, road ecstasy for the Irish; a brace of scores by Leinster openside, Max Deegan, and a pair for Zebre fullback Francois Brummer;

10           points in the last 20 minutes provided the 6-point margin of victory for Treviso as the home team returned from 15-19 down at the hour mark, to record 25-19 victory over Scarlets and draw level on the table with second-placed Edinburgh; brace by Llanelli 15, Johnny McNicholl, in the losing effort;

8             in the last ‘8 for Connacht broke the 17-all deadlock and the Galwaymen returned from 9 points down approaching the hour mark for a 25-17 wakeup of Fast Cats at the Sportsground;

2             missed conversions the difference in a 10-try affair at the Arms Park: Glasgow were in front comfortably, 38-22, with less than 10 minutes left on the clock, but they nearly left the door open to death as Blues came back with a brace of scores at ’75 and ’78 to close, yet never surmount the gap, and 38-34 the 5-point success for Warriors;
