Saracens started their Anglo Welsh LV Cup campaign with a four try 38-21 smashing of Premiership rivals Leicester Tigers at Goldington Road.

Saracens made an explosive start in front of the 3,168 strong crowd and managed to keep Leicester scoreless until half time.

Sarries had raced into a 30-0 lead thanks to tries from hooker Jamie George, centre Duncan Taylor and winger Joe Maddock.

Tigers rallied in the second half however and tries from Joe Cain and debutant number eight Michael Noone cut the deficit.

But Sarries openside Andy Saull's try in the 64th minute meant that Harry Thacker last minute try was a mere consolation.
