Hodgson earns plaudits on his Saracens debut

PREMIERSHIP champions Saracens recorded their second win from three games this season with an 18-6 victory over promoted Worcester.

Sarries trailed at the break but Charlie Hodgson brought the scores level after the interval before David Strettle scored in the corner.

Brad Barritt then appeared to have been stopped short of the line for his try, converted by Hodgson, which proved good enough for the victory.

“Charlie Hodgson did very well on his first start, especially when you consider that he had no pre-season with us,” said Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall.
