Saracens won their fifth Premiership game in a row after a seven-try mauling of Bristol Bears earned them a bonus point victory at Allianz Park.

Max Malins and Nick Tompkins scored two tries apiece with Mako Vunipola, Ben Earl and Brad Barritt also scoring as Saracens continue their bid to climb off the bottom of the table after being docked 35 points for salary-cap infringements.

Bristol have not won at Saracens for 13 years but led until the very last second of the first half.

They opened the scoring with Luke Morahan's try but Saracens ran riot in the second half scoring five unanswered tries.

Bristol broke the deadlock against the run of play in the 10th minute when Callum Sheedy's crossfield kick found the on-rushing Morahan who gathered and dotted down in the corner to stun the home crowd.
