Victories for Sarries, Wasps and Harlequins
Wasps got back to winning ways at Northampton whilst there were bonus-point wins for both Saracens and Harlequins at home.
Saracens 44-13 London Irish
The Premiership freight train that is Saracens continued its forward momentum with a routine bonus point win against lowly London Irish.
Irish full-back Tommy Bell’s boot opened the scoring before Mako Vunipola broke through the visitors defence to race over. Two Owen Farrell penalties and a further three points from the boot of Bell left the deficit at seven points when the teams left for the interval.
Fly-half Farrell notched the first set of points in the second period when he converted his own try after collecting a Liam Williams offload he sold a dummy to the Irish defence to dot down.
Both wingers helped the European champions secure the bonus point when Welsh flyer Williams extended his run of try scoring games to three before Chris Wyles continued his rich vain of form.
