Bath reach Euro final

A SOLITARY try from former England prop forward Victor Ubogu and five penalties from full back Jon Callard were enough to ensure that Bath reached the final of the European Cup with a 20-14 win over French club Pau at the Recreation Ground in Bath yesterday.

They will meet the winners of the other all-French semi-final between Toulouse and Brive which takes place on Sunday. Bath, who suffered their worst ever defeat in the league when they conceded 50 points to Saracens last Sunday, came into the match as underdogs but immediately got stuck into the Frenchmen.

They consistently pushed the ball up into the Pau 22 but were let down by poor finishing.
