Bath head into the quarter-finals of the Amlin Challenge Cup as the highest ranked team after thrashing Bucaresti 53-8.

The hosts scored a total of nine tries at the Rec to give them 29 points and make them the best-ranked pool winners, and thus avoiding the three Heineken Cup teams in the knockout phase.

Full-back Jack Cuthbert had the honour of banking the bonus point with his second try and Bath's fourth after just 27 minutes, hooker Tom Dunn getting the try scoring underway after 13 minutes before Bath were awarded a penalty try by referee Laurent Cardona.

Horacio Agulla got their fifth after the break but at least the Wolves got some reward with the ball in hand with scrum-half Grigoras Diaconescu going over the home line.

But it was pretty quickly back to business for Bath as Nick Koster and Chris Cook crossed before Cuthbert completed his hat-trick with Bath's eighth amid the inevitable rush of replacements.

There was still time for Will Skuse to take their tournament tally of tries to a hugely impressive 37 in their pursuit of more European glory.
