Exiles suffer another defeat

Delon Armitage marked his return to the London Irish starting line-up with two tries but they were not enough to save the Exiles from their seventh successive Aviva Premiership defeat, going down 28-19 to Saracens.

Armitage, who had been on the bench for the previous two matches, struck in each half for Irish, whose other nine points came from three Tom Homer penalties.

Saracens won the match on the back of an immaculate kicking display from England fly-half Charlie Hodgson, who landed five penalties from five attempts, struck two drop-goals and converted Sarries' only try, scored by flanker Will Fraser.
