A David Strettle hat-trick helps Saracens to a comfortable 47-17 win over Worcester Warriors in the Aviva Premiership.

Saracens have strengthened their hold at the top of the Aviva Premiership this afternoon with a 47-17 win over Worcester Warriors.

A first-half hat-trick from David Strettle helped the hosts race into a comfortable lead, but Josh Drauniniu crossed the whitewash for the visitors just before half time to get Worcester back into the game.

Worcester continued their comeback after the break, as Matt Kvesic broke through the home side's defence to cut their lead to six points.

However, Sarries struck back, with Carlos Nieto, Chris Ashton and Jackson Wray finding the try line for the league leaders.

The win leaves Saracens nine points clear at the top of the table, while Worcester remain ninth.
