Saracens are on the verge of qualification for the next round of the Heineken Cup after they beat Biarritz 20-16 at Vicarage Road on Sunday. Owen Farrell kicked over five from five penalties as they battled past the French outfit.
A little under 7000 fans watched key performances from Farrell and Alex Goode as they contributed towards Saracens being in a position whereby they need just one point from their trip to Treviso this coming weekend.
Young number nine Ben Spencer had crossed for their only try of the match while Dimitri Yachvilli converted his own charge down try for the visitors, and kicked two penalties.
"We are pleased to have won the game - these kind of games are about getting the job done," said Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall.
"There were times in the first half and the start of the second where we were very dominant and at 14-6 we had an opportunity to pull away and break them. We couldn't do that but the last 20 minutes characterised everything we are about as a club with the the work ethic and discipline."
The following highlights feature not only the tries, but some nice pieces of play around the park (including a bit hit). It's in French, which is not the host broadcaster language but all we have available right now. If you'd like to contribute with highlights or short clip, please get in touch.
