Premiership: Saracens 31-17 Bath

Saracens produced a stunning first-half display to secure a convincing win over Bath and maintain their 100% start.

Owen Farrell and Tom Heathcote exchanged early penalties but dominant Sarries soon took over.

Tries from Alex Goode and Matt Stevens, and two from David Strettle - all converted by Farrell - secured the hosts a bonus point by half-time.

Bath's Semesa Rokoduguni and Dave Attwood crossed after the break, George Ford converting, but it was not enough.
