At half-time they were only 3-0 up against the second-bottom side and left it until the very last play of the game to secure the bonus-point try through Alex Toolis, which takes them temporarily fifth in the Guinness Pro12.

Solomons said: “Our first half was very poor. We didn’t fire a single shot and we had 40 minutes to save our season basically. We got the critical bonus point.”
