Saracens score five tries in an easy victory against Edinburgh in the Heineken Cup this afternoon.

Saracens have finished the pool stage of the Heineken Cup with an easy win over Edinburgh.

Ashton added his second shortly after the break before a Matt Stevens effort left Saracens well in control of the tie.

Edinburgh pushed hard to try to reduce the hosts lead, but they were unable to match Saracens' pace, allowing them two tries late in the match, with Charlie Hodgson and Chris Wyles taking the ball across the line.
