Aviva Premiership round-up: Saracens remain top but Sale and Bath both lose ground

Saturday, February 20, 2016

Saracens 25-12 Gloucester

Charlie Hodgson kicked 20 points as Saracens beat Gloucester at Allianz Park to remain top of the Aviva Premiership.

Full-back Ben Ransom scored the only try of the game after two minutes, which was converted by the former England fly-half, who then kicked six more penalties to ensure the victory.

Gloucester’s didn’t manage to trouble the Saracens try line with all their points coming from the boot of Welshman James Hook.

Worcester 31-25 Sale

Sale Sharks ran out of time as they nearly staged a late comeback away to Premiership strugglers Worcester at Sixways.

Worcester took the lead through tries by Carl Kirwan and Francois Hougaard before Sale hit back with two tries of their own from David Seymour and Tommy Taylor.

Chris Pennell kept Worcester ahead and despite two late scores from the Sharks’ Mike Haley, the 16 points from the boot of Tom Heathcote was enough to secure victory for the hosts.

Bath 18-24 Wasps

Wasps moved into third place in the Premiership table with victory over Bath at the Rec.

Wasps raced into a 21-3 lead with two tries from Frank Halai and one from Simon McIntyre and penalties from Elliot Daly and Ruaridh Jackson.

Bath attempted to stage a comeback as Tom Homer and Amanaki Mafi crossed the whitewash, and two penalties by Rhys Priestland but it was too little, too late for last season’s runners-up.
