Premiership champions Saracens won 'The Big Game' at Twickenham to inflict a first league defeat of the season on leaders Harlequins.

Owen Farrell's boot did the early damage, aided by a try from Quins old boy David Strettle, to open up a 19-6 lead in front of an 82,000 crowd.

Prop Joe Marler crossed after the break but Nick Evans, who had landed two penalties, missed the conversion.

Sarries hung on to close the gap at the top to just five points.

It represented a world record for the highest attendance for a regular season club fixture.
