Flood kicked three conversions and a penalty in an exciting game as Andy Goode matched him boot for boot to leave the game with an impressive 16-point haul.
Former England rugby league flyer Kyle Eastmond made a case to be England's 19th dual-code international as he battered through the London Wasps defence to score a stunning first-ever Premiership try in Bath's 30-23 win.
Matt Banahan scored the first try of the game and Olly Barkley chipped in with 21 points to make it two wins in two for Bath.
England head coach Stuart Lancaster recently picked out Wasps' 21-year-old Christian Wade as a star of the future and he didn't disappoint with a 72nd-minute effort in a losing cause.
Lancaster was present at the Salford City Stadium to witness a classy display from his first-choice fly-half from last year's RBS 6 Nations campaign as Charlie Hodgson grabbed 18 points in Saracens 23-16 win over Sale.
But the England boss would have been rubbing his hands with glee as Chris Ashton continued his fine start to the season with a third try in his first two games to turn the match.
Owen Farrell was assured when he came on in the second half but the mercurial talent of Danny Cipriani was on show and he was steady in scoring 11 points.
And 22-year-old Freddie Burns produced the performance of the day as Gloucester downed London Irish 40-31.
Burns, who has been tipped by many as and England star in the making, was nerveless with the boot and took away 25 points from the game as each defence was given a torrid time.
