Round-Up: Redpath praises team ethic after Gloucester's try glut

outside centre Jonny May scored three of Gloucester's 14 tries as they completed a resounding 90-7 victory over Rovigo at Kingsholm in the Amlin Challenge Cup on Saturday. Olly Morgan scored two tries, as did wings James Simpson-Daniel and Lesley Vainikolo.

"I'm certainly not going to get carried away with a 90-point win because sometimes games like this are harder to play," said the Gloucester coach, Bryan Redpath, as his side bounced back from the previous week's defeat at Agen. "There were some really good displays of teamwork. Henry Trinder passed the ball like all he was thinking about was the team and not himself and that pleased me."

Andy Hazell scored first for Gloucester before Simpson-Daniel ran in two tries and scores from Freddie Burns, May, Morgan and Vainikolo followed as well as a penalty try. Vainikolo crossed again immediately after the break before May added his second and third. Morgan then got his second while Trinder and Charlie Sharples also got in on the act.

Elsewhere, Harlequins prevailed 55-17 over Cavalieri at The Stoop with Tom Williams, who was at the centre of last year's "Bloodgate" scandal, getting a hat-trick. Rory Clegg and Rima Wakarua exchanged penalties in the opening 10 minutes before Williams crossed the line for Quins just 60 seconds later. Clegg and George Lowe then combined to release Ross Chisholm, who touched down. Lowe added another and the hosts won a penalty try, which Clegg converted to make it 29-3.

Chisholm then chased down Clegg's chip to record the hosts' fifth try. Cavalieri did respond after the break with a try from Denis Majstorovic but Williams completed his treble and Sam Smith crossed the line, too.
