Saracens put the boot into Ospreys in LV Cup

Saracens remained unbeaten in the Anglo Welsh LV= Cup after they beat the Ospreys 9-21 in a tryless encounter at the Liberty Stadium.

Ben Spencer kicked all the points for Sarries as they ground their way to victory
at the Liberty Stadium.

The young scrum-half finished with 21 points as he kicked seven penalties in
a tryless affair.

It wasn’t easy early on for Sarries, who lost winger George Perkins to a yellow
card midway through the first half, with Sam Davies keeping the Ospreys very
much in touch with two early penalties of his own.

However Spencer finished the half with a total of four penalties to give the
visitors a 12-6 lead, and they were able to build on that after the break.

Despite a Davies three-pointer bringing the Ospreys back to within three with
25 minutes remaining, that was as good as it got for them.

Spencer added three more penalties, and ensured that Sarries picked up a second
successive win after their opening success against Quins.
