Hodgson seals Sarries success

Charlie Hodgson scored a late try as Saracens beat Edinburgh

Charlie Hodgson's late try gave Saracens a bonus-point win as they sealed their progress to the last eight of the Heineken Cup with an easy 40-7 victory over Edinburgh.

Sarries made light of the snowy conditions that threatened to blight their last-ever game at Vicarage Road, scoring five tries to qualify from the pool stage for the second season in a row. Chris Ashton gave himself a timely boost two weeks before the start of the RBS 6 Nations with two of the tries, with Sarries' other scores coming from Matt Stevens and Chris Wyles.

Owen Farrell kicked over 15 points for the home side, while Greig Tonks scored Edinburgh's only try which Greig Laidlaw converted.
