London Irish sneak past Sarries

London Irish continued their charge towards the play offs recording their fifth straight Premiership win on saturday night after beating Saracens by 27 points to 24.

Sarries could have drawn the match had Glen Jackson kicked a late penalty but he missed and Saracens were handed their fifth defeat in their last seven games (three in the premiership).

Saracens were ahead by one point at the break but Australian import Peter Hewat did the damage kicking 17 points for the Exiles.
