Saracens and England forward Maro Itoje injured in Stoop defeat

Saracens and England forward Maro Itoje injured in Stoop defeat”

That was until England scrum-half Care produced a moment of magic, launching a pinpoint cross-field kick to set up Charlie Walker for a richly deserved try on the right flank to breach a stoic Saracens defence 25 minutes in. This was a huge game for us and this is a big win.

"Danny is a wonderful footballer who could have played professional football", said Kingston.

Farrell kicked his second penalty before there was an injury departure for Quins when skipper James Horwill limped off.

Kingston continued: "We lost senior players at crucial times so I got a message on that the remaining players had to step up even more".

"It's only one league win but it will give us belief and I genuinely believe that this is the strongest squad we've had at the club since we've been here".

Quins dominated for long periods against their London rivals, but an early try from captain Brad Barritt and 14 points from the boot of Owen Farrell looked to have given Sarries a first win in five in all competitions.

He has undergone scans on the injury and Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall expects to know more about its extent on Monday.

They are nine points behind leaders Exeter and McCall added: "We were authors of our downfall, as we weren't smart or intelligent, and chucked the game away".

There was further bad news for Saracens as England lock Maro Itoje suffered a suspected broken jaw and is a major doubt for the weekend's European Champions Cup showdown with Clermont Auvergne.

"There was a lot of effort from us, but it was ultimately wasted effort and the defeat was self-inflicted. We gave away some awful penalties on the halfway line and put ourselves under pressure".

"Maro has gone to hospital with a facial injury so we'll get an update in the next 24 hours", he said.
