Sarries edge Worcester

Neil de Kock scored in Saracens’ 25-20 victory over Worcester that sees them top the Premiership.

The biggest plaudits, however, belong to Glenn Jackson, who kicked six penalties and a conversion to secure the win.

In other results, Bulls-bound lock Juandre Kruger had another strong game in Northampton’s 25-13 triumph over Newcastle. Gcobani Bobo in the Falcons’ midfield continues to struggle to make a telling impression in his first season. Northampton are now just a point behind Saracens in second.

Gloucester wing James Simpson-Daniel scored a hat-trick in his side’s 46-6 demolition of Harlequins. The win keeps Gloucester in the hunt for a semi-final berth.
