Worcester poor start continues

Worcester's woes continued after a last-gasp try from Tanguy Molcard saw them lose 19-15 to Biarritz in Amlin Challenge Cup Pool One.

The Warriors had lost all seven previous fixtures at Sixways this season but looked set to break their duck thanks to tries from Dean Hammond and Alex Grove, and the boot of Chris Pennell.

However, Molcard crossed with the very last play to leave Worcester head coach Dean Ryan waiting for his first win in 12 European and Aviva Premiership games this term.

Worcester led 12-0 with just over half an hour gone after Hammond crossed on 26 minutes and Grove followed suit five minutes later, but Pennell could only convert one score having also missed an earlier penalty.

A converted try from American wing Taku Ngwenya cut the gap to 12-7 four minutes before the break when Ofa Fainga'anuku had been yellow carded, and Biarritz surged ahead with 62 minutes played when Yann Lesgourgues crossed under the posts.

Pennell's kick then looked to have won it for Worcester but Molcard ensured their nightmare start continued.
