George opened the scoring after 7 minutes then repeated the feat on the 20 minute mark.
Full-back Ben Ransom scored in between George’s first half brace in the 16th minute with winger Jack Wilson scoring just before the halftime whistle in the 39th minute – Hodgson converted all the scores to give Saracens 28-0 led at the break.
There was no rest bite for the Rovers as Saracens ran in a further seven tries in the second 40. George completed his hat-trick in the 45th minute, and scores from Michael Tagicakibau (56’ & 69’), a second for Jack Wilson (59’), Richard Barrington (61’), Ben Ransom (67’) with Saracens final score coming in the 80th minute.
