Bath Rugby marched into European Challenge Cup quarter-finals with Samoan heavyweight Isaac Feaunati scoring a brace in their 31-13 win over Auch.
The win means Bath are sure of a home quarter-final and will be joined by Worcester who made mincemeat of Bucuresti at Sixways.
Back at the recreation ground, Feaunati's countryman and fellow back-rower Eliota Fuimaono opened the scoring with a try in the fifth minute, and things looked bleak for the French visitors when Feaunati smashed his way over the line to double the score.
In-form full-back Joe Maddock added a third on the half-hour mark, Auch
replacement Yohann Marty found himself in the sin-bin for a professional foul
and Feaunati's second try midway through the second half secured the bonus point
that guarantees the England club a home quarter-final.
Worcester made it at least two England clubs with a home quarter-final by
crushing Bucuresti 46-0 at Sixways.
Coach Mike Ruddock is finding the Guinness Premiership tough, but is having no
problems in the Challenge Cup, finishing the pool stages with 29 points out of
a possible 30.
Prop Matt Mullan scored twice while Rico Gear, Miles Benjamin, Dale Rasmussen,
James Brown and Gavin Quinnell all went over in the predictable rout.
Elsewhere, Italian side Petrarca secured their first victory of the competition
with a 17-5 win at home to Bayonne.
Petrarca led 10-0 at halftime, thanks to a try from winger Mike Palefau, and
full-back Enrico Patrizio added a five-pointer in the second half to hold off a
French comeback. Montauban finished the pool stage with three wins from their
six matches after an entertaining 34-17 win at GRAN Parma.
Scotland lock Scott Murray was among the visitors four try-scorers, with Parma
fly-half Rima Wakarua providing 12 of his sides points.
