Sarries clinch dramatic win

A controversial late try by centre Brad Barritt and a Owen Farrell touchline conversion gave reigning champions Saracens a last-gasp 19-17 Aviva Premiership victory to end Gloucester's 22-match winning run at Kingsholm.

It was the only time Saracens led in the match and the result kept them in second place in the table.

The match, which saw the return to club action of Mike Tindall and Eliota Fuimaono-Sapolu after their respective World Cup controversies, was niggly throughout after a fracas inside 15 seconds lit the blue touch paper and referee Tim Wigglesworth had to talk to both captains.
