It was by now ludicrously straightforward for the house aspect. Tries both aspect of half-time by Carreras and Ben Morgan extinguished any faint prospect that Bath might repeat what Northampton did to them final week and are available to life as they have been being buried.
Tries from Atkinson, skipper Lewis Ludlow, alternative scrum-half Ben Meehan and prop Jamal Ford-Robinson adopted earlier than Alemanno rounded off the rout.
