Result: Saracens beaten by London Irish

Saracens miss the chance to move to the top of the Aviva Premiership by losing 29-16 at London Irish.

London Irish have taken a 29-16 win to stun Saracens in the Aviva Premiership this afternoon.

There were few try-scoring opportunities in the opening 40 minutes, Tom Homer and Charlie Hodgson each kicking three penalties to see the sides level at 9-9 at half time.

Shane Geraghty managed to cross the try line in the 52nd minute to help the Exiles edge ahead, but David Strettle scored for Saracens to reduce the hosts' lead.

Irish maintained their attacking style, and managed to add a second try through Ofisa Treviranus, with just over 10 minutes left to play.

The loss sees Saracens drop to third in the table, while London Irish have closed the gap to 10th-placed London Welsh to just one point.
