Worcester Warriors 3-25 Saracens, Sixways Stadium
Scorecard

Chris Wyles scored a try each in either half as Saracens went on to beat Worcester Warriors with a 3-25 margin in their Aviva Premiership clash at Sixways on Friday.

The European Champions suffered a setback even before the game started when Schalk Brits was ruled out due to illness and Jamie George stepped in. It took Wyles just five minutes to get Saracens off the mark with a try while fly-half Alex Lozowski kicked a conversion and a penalty to take them to a 10 point lead.

Worcester finally opened their account in the 30th minute with a three-pointer from Jamie Shillcock but his efforts were negated by Lozowski, who responded with a penalty of his own to ensure Saracens went into half-time with a 3-13 lead.

As Worcester failed to add any point in the second half, tries from Alex Goode (51') and Wyles (75') took them to a position of comfort while Owen Farrell, who came off the bench in the 57th minute slotted a conversion at the closing stage to seal a 22 point victory for Sarries.

The win has taken Saracens to second position in the table while Worcester Warriors languish at the bottom after losing all the five games this season.
