WORCESTER Warriors are still looking for their first win of the Aviva Premiership season after two tries from Chris Wyles and an Alex Goode effort steered Saracens to a 25-3 victory at Sixways.

A solitary Jamie Shillcock penalty was all Worcester had to show for their efforts but it could so easily have been more had it not been for the visitors’ outstanding defence that kept them at bay.

For long periods of the game, the Sixways side had their illustrious visitors on the back foot and it was only in the closing stages that Sarries finally took control.

The European champions started strongly and there was little to cheer for the partisan home crowd in the early stages other than a couple of excellent catches under pressure from the returning Chris Pennell.

Early Sarries pressure was rewarded on six minutes when after the ball had been worked from one flank to the other a spectacular long-range pass from Goode found Wyles in acres of space on the left and he gratefully dotted down with Alex Lozowski kicking the conversion.

Six minutes later the Sarries fly-half slotted over a penalty after the Worcester forwards had come in at the side and it looked like being a tough evening for the home side.

But as the half went on bottom-of-the-table Warriors started asking questions of the Premiership high-fliers.

A scrum just failed to find its way over the line before a catch-and-drive move on the right was halted by some desperate defending.

With 32 minutes on the clock Warriors chalked up their first points with Shillcock slotting over a penalty from a little shy of 40 metres.

But any feelings of a fightback were short-lived as the visitors regained their 10-point advantage five minutes later with Lozowski drilling his penalty between the posts after Worcester were penalised at a scrum.

There was a touch of chaos in the closing stages of the half when Warriors' Josh Adams looked to have touched the ball down only for the referee to award a five-metre scrum which came to nothing.

A scrappy start to the second half saw Worcester slowly take control up front with the Sarries scrum going backwards.

The answer proved to be a raft of changes 15 minutes in and the impact was immediate.

After trying to bludgeon their way through the middle, back-row replacement Nick Isiekwe broke the line and fed centre Duncan Taylor who in turn popped the ball up to Goode and he trotted over the line.

Lozowski missed the conversion but Sarries soon went in search of more points, camping on the Warriors line and only a knock-on stopped them from adding a third try.

With an hour gone, Owen Farrell entered the fray while Worcester also made changes including the arrival of Jono Kitto in place of scrum-half Jonny Arr.

On 66 minutes Shillcock thought he had broken clear only for the referee to call play back following a series of knock-ons.

Sarries extended the lead to 25-3 on 79 minutes when an excellent kick to the corner by Goode was gathered by Wyles for his second try of the game which Farrell converted.

The visitors finished the stronger but it was an impressive effort from the home side.
