Result: Leicester Tigers 25-50 Saracens
Saracens extend their winning streak to three games after a convincing win at Welford Road.

Saracens have extended their unbeaten run to three games following their win over Leicester at Welford Road.

Fly-half Charlie Hodgson scored three first-half penalties and converted two tries, one scored by himself and the other by Ernst Joubert to give the away team a comfortable lead at the break. Billy Twelvetrees' two penalties and a Niall Morris try left Leicester trailing by 12.

Owen Farrell and Jamie George each scored a try inside the first five minutes of the second half to extend Saracens' lead. Julian Salvi responded for the hosts in a matter of minutes to close the gap to 17 points, but the Tigers couldn't capitalise before Joubert restored the 20-plus point Sarries lead.

Neither side scored again until the final five minutes, when Ben Woods' score for the home side was again equalled following Farrell's second try of the match and last-minute penalty.
