Saracens and Harlequins look unstoppable as they march on undefeated in Premier 15s

Saracens and Harlequins remain unbeaten in the Premier 15s after both sides battled to emphatic victories in the sixth round of the tournament.

Defending champions Saracens beat Gloucester-Hartpury 15-7 at Allianz Park. The west country team fought to get back into the game after Sarries were 12-0 up after 37 minutes.

The only points scored in the second half were from a penalty kick by Lisa Martin which secured her new club's side another win. They remain second in the table after London rivals Quins secured another bonus point.

Harlequins also won at home against Loughborough Lightning. Despite the northern side getting off the a flying start, they were up by 17-0 after 25 minutes, Quins hit back to win 22-17.

This is the second time this season that Loughborough have been ahead by 17-0 and went on to lose the game. They also lost in this fashion to, yes you've guessed it, Saracens.

Richmond lost once again as they travelled to Bristol Bears. After making the journey to Bristol the London side lost 26-18.

Bears' Kim Oliver said post-match: "We made it difficult for ourselves, the conditions didn’t help that but we got the job done and secured five points.”

Darlington Mowden Park Sharks (DMPS) secured their third win of the season against Worcester Warriors. DMPS beat the Warriors 32-21, Worcester haven't won a game all season.

Firwood met their Waterloo in a thumping from Wasps, 62-0. The win meant Wasps have crept back into the top four in third position, pushing Gloucester-Hartpury into fourth place.
