Premiership Rugby Cup semi-final: Worcester Warriors 22 Saracens 38
Saracens reached the Premiership Rugby Cup final with an emphatic 38-22 win over Worcester Warriors.
Tries from scrum-half Tom Whiteley and wing Rotimi Segun, the former converted by Alex Lozowski, put Sarries 12-0 up inside 10 minutes and centre Lozowski tacked on two penalties to make it 18-0.
Worcester finally got on the board with a Scott Van Breda penalty and though Whiteley brilliantly held Matt Cox up on the line, their first try soon arrived courtesy of full-back Nick David - who collided with team-mate Tom Howe as he scored and, like hooker Niall Annett before him, left the field using his shirt as a makeshift sling.
Lozowski landed two more penalties and though Howe’s try cut the deficit once more, Max Malins raced clear for a third Sarries try on the hour.
