Tomkins makes his mark

Joel Tomkins marked his Saracens first team debut with two tries as a commanding second-half performance secured a 41-14 victory over Worcester, although victory is not enough to rescue the club's LV= Cup campaign.

Rugby league convert Tomkins crossed twice after the break as Saracens, trailing for 55 minutes, took control and Nils Mordt kicked 16 points. Peter Stringer, Justin Melck and Jamie George also scored tries for the hosts.

But Bath are running away with their pool, so this is one trophy the reigning Aviva Premiership champions will not be walking away with this season despite victory over Worcester, who led 14-13 at the interval thanks to converted scores from Sam Betty and Tom Arscott.
