Hodgson boots Sarries to victory

Charlie Hodgson did little to harm his chances of an England recall with six penalties as Saracens beat Northampton 18-12 to reduce Harlequins' lead at the top of the Aviva Premiership to four points.

Ryan Lamb, who replaced Stephen Myler five minutes from time, rescued a losing bonus point for Saints with a 79th-minute penalty.

Myler booted an additional three penalties for the visitors, who sit fourth in the table, 11 points adrift of Harlequins.
