  2. Coming up this weekend

    FT: Saracens 24-10 Leicester

    After that entertaining afternoon, we have even more Premiership action to look forward to tomorrow

    Then, from 15:00, winless Bristol are at home to Sale Sharks, while there is a heavyweight clash in the south west as Exeter Chiefs entertain in-form Bath at Sandy Park.

  3. Full-time

    Harlequins 36-14 Worcester

    Harlequins pushed on in the second-half to secure a comprehensive bonus-point victory over Worcester.

    Warriors have just one victory in the Premiership this season and sit 11th in the table.

    Harlequins meanwhile move up to fifth.

  4. 'We front up every week'

    FT: Saracens 24-10 Leicester

    Michael Rhodes

    Michael Rhodes speaking on BT Sport:

    "It was a good result and a nice way to go into the two-week break.

    "We knew Tigers would be proactive at the set-piece so we had to work hard on this during the week.

    "I might be in the second row for quite a while now until the guys come back from their injuries. It’s tough in the engine room but I have to get used to it.

    "Maro Itoje's a bit upset that I’m taking his MOTM awards!"

  5. FT: Saracens 24-10 Leicester


    Saracens, despite their injuries, power on regardless with a comfortable victory over Leicester Tigers.

    The 2015/16 champions were efficient all afternoon and they'll finish round seven where they began, on top of the table.

    The home side got points on the board early and despite Leicester rallying in the second-half, Tigers left themselves too much to do.

  6. Full-time

    Saracens 24-10 Leicester

  7. Saracens 24-10 Leicester

    Tigers are camped on the Saracens line as we go back for yet another penalty for offside.

    Some desperate defence from the Champions in the final few minutes.

    Logovi'i Mulipola is carrying hard for Leicester but Ellis Genge loses the ball in the tackle and Alex Lozowski hacks the ball clear.

    The story of Leicester's afternoon.

  8. Elsewhere

    Harlequins 29-14 Worcester

    Harlequins are closing in on victory at the Stoop. Worcester have got around five minutes left to find three scores, which looks very unlikely.

  9. Saracens 24-10 Leicester

    The time is up on Mako Vuniploa's sin bin and Saracens are back to their full complement as Leicester launch another challenge.

    Some lovely hands in the midfield from Tigers before Matthew Tait dinks his kick into touch.

    Leicester have found some opportunities in this final quarter but they've given themselves too much to do.

    Five minutes to play...

  10. Saracens 24-10 Leicester

    Leicester need to fight till the end here. Another converted try and they'll get at least a losing bonus point.

    But the set-piece stats do not read well for Richard Cockerill's side. They give away their third penalty of the afternoon at the scrum.

  11. Saracens 24-10 Leicester

    Yellow Card

    And Leicester are on the attack again. They look a completely different side since Mako Vunipola's sin binning.

    They have options here but they need to be patient.

    And just on cue, Saracens win the penalty. Logovi'i Mulipola off his feet and in at the side.

  12. Post update

    Saracens 24-10 Leicester

    Tim Streather

    Saracens back on BBC Radio London

    That's a really good try from Leicester as Catchpole scores in the corner. It was really sharp play from Freddie Burns, making nice yards.

  13. Try (Catchpole, con Williams)

    Saracens 24-10 Leicester

    The move started way back in their own half and ended with George Catchpole plucking the ball out of the air on the wing to score his first Premiership try.

    Owen Williams slots a tough conversion and Leicester finally have something to cheer about.

    Freddie Burns' entrance has certainly made a difference to this game.

  14. Saracens 24-3 Leicester

    But a South-African double-act stops Leicester in their path. 

    Schalk Burger holds the man up long enough for Schalk Brits to get over the ball. And Saracens win the penalty.

  15. Sin-bin (M Vunipola)

    Saracens 24-3 Leicester

    Mako Vunipola

    An easy decision for Wayne Barnes.

    Freddie Burns with a chip over the top and Mako Vunipola drops the shoulder to stop Burns' path through. He's sent to the bin for 10 minutes.

    And there's a little window here for Leicester.

  16. Saracens 24-3 Leicester

    But it's a much better defensive set from Leicester and they'll be no fourth try (yet) for Saracens.

    Tigers then win the penalty at the scrum and they'll get some welcome relief.

  17. Saracens 24-3 Leicester

    But it looks more likely to be a Saracens score as they chase the bonus-point try.

    Owen Farrell drives the ball hard into the corner and it will be a tough task to stop Saracens from five metres out...

  18. At The Stoop

    Harlequins 21-14 Worcester

    The Stoop

    Meanwhile, Harlequins have a seven-point lead over Worcester, after moving further ahead through Mike Brown's fine try but then seeing their advantage reduced as Be Te'o crosses for the visitors.

  19. Saracens 24-3 Leicester

    Freddie Burns is on for Leicester. Can he help their game to come alive?

    His side are on the attack as substitute Sam Harrison slowly but surely makes his way towards the 22.

    They need to punch through the Saracens line here but the home side are only committing one player to the breakdown.

  20. Saracens 24-3 Leicester

    And it's another turnover by Saracens from a Leicester line-out.

    Having won the penalty, Leicester had the chance to apply the pressure, but they lose it straight away.

    Tom Youngs sets up for another throw-in, this time 30 metres down the field.
