European Champions Cup: Clermont 17-28 Saracens
Saracens made it back-to-back Champions Cup triumphs as they deservedly defeated Clermont 28-17 at Murrayfield on Saturday.
Early tries from England internationals Chris Ashton and George Kruis helped Sarries into a 12-0 lead, but Clermont hit back through powerhouse centre Remi Lamerat’s converted try.
After Owen Farrell edged Sarries eight points clear a dazzling Nick Abendanon try saw Clermont move back within a point.
But a combination of fullback Alex Goode’s try and Farrell’s boot ensured Saracens retained their crown in style.
