Defending champions Exeter Chiefs extended their lead at the top of the Premiership to seven points with a 24-12 win over challengers Saracens.
Joe Simmonds kicked the table-toppers to victory on Sunday, dispatching four penalties before a penalty try gave Exeter some breathing space late on.
And Saracens dropped to third after Wasps’ hard-fought 24-16 triumph over London Irish saw the Coventry-based outfit climb to second in the table.
Tom Cruse scored a brace for Wasps, with his second try – on 77 minutes – vital to hold off the Irish fightback, Dave Porecki and Petrus Du Plessis having gone over in the second half.

Alafoti Faosiliva had drawn Worcester level at the midway point of the first half, but Greg Bateman’s 36th-minute effort allowed Leicester to accelerate out of sight and Manu Tuilagi was also on the scoreboard late on.
Harlequins were also comfortable winners, coming from behind to see off Bath 20-5.
