The back-row forward popped up on the left wing for Bath and produced a sidestep Cheslin Kolbe would have been proud of as he put his side 20-14 ahead against Leicester Tigers at the Recreation Ground.

Unfortunately for the home team, Leicester fought back to win the Gallagher Premiership match 24-20 but Bayliss’ try caught the eye.

He had only been on the pitch for a couple of minutes, replacing No 8 Nathan Hughes, when he took a pass from Josh McNally then stepped past Freddie Burns and Richard Wigglesworth before running in the score.
