Farrell on target in Sarries win

Owen Farrell kicked a record 10 penalties in a Heineken Cup tie to clinch a sensational 37-28 victory for Saracens at Racing Metro.

The England fly-half was imperious with the boot in the face of a partisan French crowd, with a perfect 11 kicks from as many attempts in a staggering 32-point haul.

Chris Wyles scored Saracens' only try of a tense clash, though the Aviva Premiership side had to cope with two yellow cards and a worrying injury to David Strettle to pull off a vital victory.

The result leaves Saracens one win away from reaching the quarter-finals for the second year in succession.

Luc Ducalcon and Juan Imhoff (two) were the try-scorers for Metro, with Sebastien Descons kicking the rest of their points.
