IT was a festive treat for supporters at the StoneX Stadium as Saracens scored nine tries on route to an entertaining 61-29 win over a battling Worcester Warriors side.

But Gareth Simpson's 76th minute try ensured Worcester did leave London with an unlikely point as a late flurry of scores from the visitors put some smiles on faces of the Warriors supporters in attendance.

Ashley Beck added a fifth try in the final throws of the match after Francois Venter had crossed twice in the second-half following a first-half try from Joe Batley.

But it was an otherwise ruthless display from Saracens, who scored their tries through a brace each for Billy Vunipola, Max Malins and Alex Lewington and further scores from Alex Goode, Nick Isiekwe and Nick Tomkins.

It was a blistering start from the hosts and Lewington had his first when he finished in the corner.

Saracens were crushing the Worcester pack at scrum time and Vunipola touched down as he pushed the set-piece over the try line to take the lead to 12-0.

Goode then ghosted through the Warriors already tiring defence for the third before Tompkins secured the extra point with the fourth try.

Worcester were struggling for any kind of possession in the Saracens half and were continuously being forced backwards by their relentless hosts and they had their fifth try of the afternoon when second-row Isiekwe showed off his pace to dummy past Fin Smith and dive over for a popular score.

Worcester finally got on the scoresheet after some sustained pressure in the Saracens 22 enabled Batley to crash over but Lewington then scored in the final play of the half as the home side hit 40.

It was an encouraging start to the second period for the away side, however, as Venter crashed through a few tacklers to stretch over and score their second try.

But Saracens roared back instantly as Ben Earl profited from a mix up under the high ball between Andrew Kitchener and Gareth Simpson.

Vunipola added an eighth try from another successful driving maul from close range before Malins stormed through a gap to make it nine.

But then came the late show from the away side, who scored their third after a lovely flowing move ended with Venter touching down.

The bonus-point was then secured with four minutes to go when Joe Batley and Ted Hill combined to take play into the 22 before Simpson sniped around the fringes for a try.

Another play from one 22 to another then provided Smith the chance to kick to the corner where Beck was there to collect and add further cheer for the few Warriors supporters.
