Gloucester rampant in Italy as Welsh sides slip up
Saturday 19 October 2002
Gloucester made it two wins out of two in the Heineken Cup, overwhelming Viadana 80-28 last night in Italy. Winger James Simpson-Daniel and fellow back Terry Fanolua both scored hat-tricks as Nigel Melville's side followed up last week's impressive defeat of Munster.
Llanelli's spirited fightback against Bourgoin proved in vain as the home side produced a late rally to win 54-38. Trailing 24-3 in the 20th minute, Llanelli went in front just after half-time following a Martyn Madden try. However, in an exciting if error-strewn finale, Jean-Francois Couxcame and Glenn Davis went over to clinch the game for Bourgoin.
David Humphreys kicked 20 points as Ulster recorded their first victory, running out 25-6 winners to condemn Cardiff to almost certain elimination from the competition.
To compound Welsh woe, Newport fell to their eighth successive defeat in all competitions this season. They let slip a 19-14 interval lead at Rodney Parade to lose 30-19 to Toulouse, who had French international Xavier Garbajosa, sent off in injury time.
