Owen Farrell edged the battle of the erratic goal-kickers as Saracens won a compelling contest 19-13 against Munster at Vicarage Road to top Pool One of the Heineken Cup.
With two games remaining in the pool stage, Saracens hold a two-point advantage over Racing Metro and a three-point cushion over Munster. Saracens were deserved winners, overcoming the loss of Will Fraser to the sin bin, but had to rely on 14 points from the boot of Farrell for their success along with David Strettle's first-half try.
Munster grabbed an interception try from Doug Howlett - which Ronan O'Gara converted in addition to two penalties - but the away side failed to take advantage of Fraser's absence and two late misses from O'Gara cost them dearly.
