Saracens beat Worcester and secure Semi-final

Saracens managed to beat Worcester in the Anglo Welsh LV Cup 12-22 which effectively knocked London Irish out of the tournament and also secured them a place in the semi-finals.


Mark McCall’s side were without several of their first team stars away on international duty, yet managed to upset the hosts thanks to a brace of tries from number eight Ernst Joubert and five penalty kicks from scrum-half Ben Spencer.


Worcester produced two tries of their own through number eight Blair Cowan and winger Josh Drauniniu.


“This group of players don’t normally play and they are ring rusty, but


they did extremely well today as it is now eight out of nine wins for us and this one over Worcester, our bogey team,” said Saracens coach Alex Sanderson.


“We want to be greedy and win all three. The best sides in history have won all three and that is what we aim to do.”
