Match Report: Worcester Warriors 3 Saracens 25

Saracens secured their third Aviva Premiership Rugby in a row on Friday night as they recorded a 25-3 win over Worcester Warriors at Sixways.

Chris Wyles and Alex Goode touched down for Saracens either side of half-time with Alex Lozowski knocking over eight points with the boot.

Saracens’ replacement Owen Farrell then found Wyles with a wonderful crossfield late on to add further gloss to the victory.

Jamie Shillcock mustered the Warriors only points of the evening as they failed to reproduce the heroics of their 24-18 win over the European Champions back in February.

Winger Wyles opened the scoring as he raced onto an excellent looping pass from full-back Goode and dotted down in the corner after six minutes.

With British & Irish Lion Farrell on the bench, Lozowski stepped up and knocked over the touchline conversion before adding a penalty to push his side 10-0 up.

On the half hour mark, Shillcock got the home side on the board with a penalty but Lozowski replied almost immediately to restore Saracens’ ten-point advantage.

It was a lead they took into half-time despite Josh Adams’ best efforts who was inches away from scoring. A knock-on within touching distance of the tryline denying the Warriors.

Saracens extended their advantage after 52 minutes as a neat blindside move saw Duncan Taylor make a break before Goode sped away to score.

Lozowski was unable to add the extras but Saracens had a 15-point lead at Sixways.

Second row George Kruis was held up inches short of the line with 68 minutes on the clock following another Taylor break but the Warriors defence stood firm.

But the stubborn Warriors defence couldn’t quite hold on as Farrell’s crossfield kick found Wyles who touched down for his second of the evening.
