David Lemi helped himself to four tries as Worcester went on the rampage for the second week in a row in the Amlin Challenge Cup, beating Rovigo 90-3 on Saturday.

A week after plundering 13 tries in an 85-5 win in Spain over Bizkaia Gernika, the Warriors made it an unlucky afternoon for the Italians adding 14 more in the Pool Two clash at Sixways.

Samoan wing Lemi scored twice in each half to equal All Black wing Rico Gear's club European record against GRAN Parma four seasons ago, but his 20 points were beaten by outside half Joe Carlisle.

Seven days after notching 20 points in Spain, Carlisle eclipsed Shane Drahm's record of 21 points in a match against Montauban four years ago, ending with a match haul of 30 from 10 conversions and two tries.

Wing Andy Short also helped himself to a hat-trick and England Under-20 back-rower Matt Kvesic scored twice.

The next two games will be a different prospect for the Warriors however, as they chase a second Amlin Challenge Cup final berth.

Both assignments are against Perpignan, who scored 10 tries in their 79-12 away win in Rovigo.

The Warriors will have home advantage in the first of the back-to-back games on Thursday, December 6 before they face Top 14 side away.
