Old Patesians simply had too much pace and possession and remain undefeated in the junior county cup with this convincing win, scoring five tries in the process.

From the kick-off, Jake Allen secured possession and charged up field to within ten metres and Nick Chittock, on a typical sniping run from the ruck, opened the scores.

Saracens replied with what was to be their only points of the game, coming from a well-taken dropped goal.

Pats followed up with three points from Hathaway's boot and when Chittock found Hathaway on halfway he linked with flying Sam Colbert-Smith to put new find Guy Parsley in for a try in the corner opening up a ten-point margin at the interval.

With their heads-up, playing down the slope Pats were relentless in attack and stubborn in defence going on to score 20 unanswered points in a dominant second half display.

In-form centre Zach Rob crashed through three tackles under the posts for a converted try and bulldozing Will Safe unselfishly fed his skipper George Carrie who barged over in the corner taking the game out-of-sight.

Superb fullback Hathaway had the last say with a trademark collection and pacey run from inside his 22 carving through defenders for a brilliant individual score.
