Worcester make history at Exeter, Sarries win
Saracens moved to within two points of the Premiership summit by beating Newcastle Falcons, after struggling Worcester Warriors had earned a historic win in a low-scoring affair at leaders Exeter Chiefs.
The Warriors defeated the defending champions 6-5 to record a first win at Sandy Park, putting a 12-point buffer between themselves and bottom club London Irish.
Mitch Lees crossed for Exeter after the break to ensure a nervy ending, but the Warriors held on for a famous win.
Massive thanks to the Warriors faithful today who drove the boys on, especially at the end!

That allowed Saracens to close on top spot thanks to a convincing 25-3 win over Newcastle at Allianz Park.
Leicester Tigers’ hit-and-miss season continued in a 24-17 reverse at Gloucester, with Henry Trinder scoring twice for the hosts.
Rounding off the action, Irish lost for the 13th time in 14 league matches this season as Sale Sharks ground out a 13-9 victory.
