It was a narrow margin by which Saracens defeated Newcastle. They are now second in the ladder. David Strettle gave the much needed lead for the Sarries which was a clean move.
At the break Saracens were 13- 10. Third attempt was made by Will Welch which was the third. Three penalties were kicked by Ben Spencer by which win was earned by Saracens.
First half was quite power packed with Saull going in for a maul however extras were not added by Tom Catterick. The deficit was reduced by Hodgson as 40 metres was the penalty. Scores were levelled by Tuilagi as manovering was done by the defence of Sarries.
Catterick could not turn the conversion in his favour. Spencer replaced Hodgson to give an edge to the Saracens. For the third attempt Welch was driving for Falcons as mauling by the Newcastle Was continued.
Saracens got some life back as lead was taken over by the two penalties stuck by Spencer which also included a sweet time kick. Attacking threat was not posed by the Newcastle as Spencer began to play and notch up with his boot. Victory was sealed by the Saracens which was hailed as the 10th win. There were replacements in both the team yet could not register a win from Newcastle.
Mark McCall, the director of Saracens rugby pointed out that the game was massive for them and to get maximum points was important for them. The most patient man has been Ben Spencer since he hardly complains and strives harder. Dean Richards, the director of Newcastle on the other hand pointed out that the problem for them was that they could not win. It is low margin which makes things easier for the team. The decision making was poor and should have converted big points.
