Saracens 62-5 Worcester Warriors, Allianz Park
Saracens ran a seven try riot as they thrashed Worcester Warriors 62-5 in their Gallagher Premiership clash at Allianz Park on Saturday.
This is Saracens' sixth win from eight games as they move to -7 points while Worcester are at seventh place with 17 points.
The game also saw Worcester lock Michael Fatialofa leave the field with a neck injury. Ben Earl kick started the proceedings with a sixth minute penalty goal and Owen Farrell kicked the conversion to make the scoreline 7-0.
There was looking back for Mark McCall's men with Rotimi Segun (11' and 40'), Brad Barritt (21') and Mako Vunipola (29') also dotted down making the scoreline 31-0 by the end of the first half.
Saracens extended their momentum into the second half with back to back tries from Richard Barrington and Maro Itoje before Ed Fidow's try at the end of the third quarter helped the Warriors off the mark.
With further tries from Duncan Taylor, Jackson Wray and Elliot Daly coming in the final 22 minutes, Saracens ensured they completed a dominating 62-5 win.
"We talked about playing with some real intensity and high work-rate and I think that's what happened really - so an enjoyable performance," said Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall.
"It's really important as we go through these months ahead that we enjoy our rugby and I thought there was a real joy in the players, especially in the first half.
"I think the really positive narrative of our season has been the emergence of a lot of our younger players and the academy crop - Rotimi Segun scored a couple of tries and you've got Ben Earl and Nick Isiekwe, who were fantastic again."
