Jamie George scored a try in front of England head coach Eddie Jones as champions Saracens thumped Sale in a mismatch at Allianz Park. Marcelo Bosch, Sean Maitland (two), George, Chris Wyles and Richard Barrington all touched down for the rampant hosts, who surged 10 points clear at the top of Pool Three.

Hooker George is hoping to capitalise if Dylan Hartley is banned for the beginning of the Six Nations, after being sent off for Northampton against Leinster on Friday, and he did his cause no harm.
