RugbyU: Record 83,889-crowd as Saracens go top

Saracens turned on the style to go top of the Premiership with a 39-17 rout of Harlequins in front of a record crowd for a club rugby match on Saturday. A new attendance record for a club match of 83,889 was set at Wembley and the bumper crowd were treated to a dominant Saracens display as they took advantage of Harlequins' decision to rest England internationals Chris Robshaw, Danny Care and Mike Brown following their involvement in the Six Nations.

RugbyU: Sting in tale as Wasps leave Worcester facing drop

Premiership strugglers Worcester are in danger of crashing out of the English top-flight after Wasps snatched a dramatic 13-11 win at Sixways on Friday. The Warriors led 11-6 heading into the last minute after flanker Sam Betty's second-half try looked to have secured four crucial points. Wasps had been the last Premiership side beaten by Worcester in March last year, since when the Warriors had gone 21 league games without a win.
