Good news is it all resumes in just five days time.

See you from 19:30 GMT on Friday for Harlequins v Leicester.

Seconds out - round 13

We'll be back for more live Premiership action next week, starting on Friday night at The Stoop.

Here's a run-down of what to expect.

FT: Saracens 23-64 Wasps

Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall told BT Sport:

"It's hard to know what to say.

"The important thing is what happens next rather than looking back on the performance.

"Wasps were phenomenal today, absolutely brilliant."

How it stands

Confirmation of Wasps' dramatic climb up the table to fourth.

FT: Saracens 23-64 Wasps

Wasps director of rugby Dai Young told BT Sport:

"Everything that we talked about in the week came off. It doesn't happen many times.

"We've got to pinch ourselves because there wasn't much we could pick fault in that.

"Everything went our way today, it doesn't happen often, but it's just one of those games."

FT: Saracens 23-64 Wasps

Wasps flanker George Smith told BT Sport:

"We did make a statement tonight. We thought there was an opportunity to play against these guys and play well.

"The way the boys attended to their work in their preparation for this match was great, so congratulate all the players, they played extremely well.

"Throughout the year we've played well in the first 20 minutes. Those three tries were fantastic, but it's what you do after those three tries and we continued to put pressure on their team."

A helpful reminder

Saracens 23-64 Wasps

If you weren't able to keep pace with who scored what and when, here's some help....

BBC Sport


Saracens 23-64 Wasps

Stay tuned. We'll have some reaction to come from that tremendous victory for Wasps at Allianz Park.


Saracens 23-64 Wasps

George Smith is the man of the match in that pulsating contest.

His Wasps side are up to fourth. Saracens have missed the chance to extend their lead at the top. 

Joel Conlon

Saracens flanker on BBC Radio London

Wasps were very good in both defence and attack. They thoroughly deserve the victory.


Saracens 23-64 Wasps

Ten tries in that one. Don't we just spoil you?


Saracens 23-64 Wasps

Yep, no typo on that scoreline.

It's time up at the end of a quite remarkable 80 minutes of rugby.

Penalty (Lozowski)

Saracens 23-64 Wasps

It's another huge long-range effort from Wasps.

Elliot Daly clearly thinks this one's too close for him so he passes it over to Alex Lozowski to notch it over from 45 metres.

Penalty (Daly)

Saracens 23-61 Wasps

Wow! Just wow....

Elliot Daly hardly looks like he's broken sweat there and he has put it between the posts and over the bar from around 58 metres back.

That is the cherry well and truly on top for Wasps.

Saracens 23-58 Wasps

Saracens give away a penalty on Wasps' 10-metre line for not releasing.

Elliot Daly and his big kicking boot are going to have a go at the posts...

Saracens 23-58 Wasps

Rob Miller and Christain Wade not quite on the same wavelength as Miller's pass goes flying out of touch out wide.

First real error from the visitors with the ball in their hands.

No try

Saracens 23-58 Wasps

Try not given to Saracens as replacement fly-half Nils Mordt is adjudged to have neck-rolled in the tackle on Alex Rieder at the clear out of the earlier ruck.

Try review

Saracens 23-58 Wasps

We could have another one here, for Saracens and Titi Lamositele this time....

Saracens 23-58 Wasps

I honestly didn't think the second half would match the first for entertainment and points.

How wrong you can be....

Try (Robson, con Gopperth)

Saracens 23-58 Wasps

Absolutely fantastic rugby from Wasps. It's Dan Robson with their EIGHTH try of the game!

Error at the line-out by Saracens as it's thrown too long, Nathan Hughes picks it up and runs to within 25 metres of the line. 

Robson is there in support and he has his second try of the afternoon in the simplest fashion.

Conversion kicked by Jimmy Gopperth.

Saracens 23-51 Wasps

More changes from both sides as we enter the closing stages of this quite remarkable game.

Saracens could still pick up two points here with a couple more tries and if they get within seven points of Wasps.

Saracens 23-51 Wasps

Elliot Daly gives us a glimpse of the big kicking skills he possesses and could show for England at centre as he clears for Wasps while under pressure.

But, his forward pack concede a penalty on Saracens' 10-metre line for not releasing.

Saracens 23-51 Wasps

Another great move through the hands by Wasps, but Carlo Festuccia steps up too early in the line and fumbles the ball on Saracens' 22.

Saracens 23-51 Wasps

First real pedestrian phase of this game if you can call it that.

Saracens trying to find a way through the Wasps defensive wall and eventually they give a penalty away on the floor.

Jimmy Gopperth booms the kick well into Saracens' 22.

Saracens 23-51 Wasps

Still 20 minutes to go in this one if you can believe it.....

Saracens 23-51 Wasps

Mike Ellery and Brad Barritt both make some ground for Saracens as they hunt a third try of the game.

Strong defence from Wasps though to eat up some minutes and keep them at bay.

Ellery eventually spills it on the inside ball from Charlie Hodgson. Knock-on.

Saracens 23-51 Wasps

Off goes Wasps prop Simon McIntyre - the nephew of former Leeds United and Sheffield United striker Brian Deane no less. 

A real cult hero of the early Premier League years.

Anyhow, his afternoon is over and Matt Mullan takes his place in the front row.

Try (Hamilton, con Hodgson)

Saracens 23-51 Wasps

Jim Hamilton gets a second try for Saracens after both he and Titi Lamositele went sniffing for the line on the pick-and-drives.

Hamilton is the one to sneak it over and Hodgson quickly adds the extras.

Saracens 16-51 Wasps

Saracens finally get to spend some time in their opponents' 22 from the restart.

Jacques Burger is almost over the line, but is held up a metre short....

Penalty (Gopperth)

So, referee Ian Tempest actually gave a penalty restart after all those handbags following Charles Piutau's try.

Jimmy Gopperth slams it over from 50 metres and it's another three points to punish Saracens further.

Try (C Piutau, con Gopperth)

Saracens 16-48 Wasps

It's seventh-heaven for Wasps and it's a second try of the game for Charles Piutau.

Ian Tempest the referee is also interested in some foul play after the try was scored.

Jacques Burger was having a few afters with Kearnan Myall in the in-goal area. Trevor Fisher taking a long look at it.

No yellow cards after all that and Gopperth kicks another two points for Wasps with the conversion.

Saracens 16-41 Wasps

Christian Wade and Kearnan Myall shove an attack from Saracens out of touch.

First change for Wasps with one of their try-scorers Thomas Young off for a head injury assessment for Alex Rieder. 

Penalty (Gopperth)

Saracens 16-41 Wasps

Jimmy Gopperth takes Wasps past 40 points as he takes advantage from the tee.

His personal points tally now up to 15 as well.

Sin-bin (Hargreaves)

Saracens 16-38 Wasps

Woes continue for Saracens and captain Alistair Hargreaves is in the bin for coming in at the side of the ruck.

Catches George Smith with a knee in the face on the floor in the process.

Saracens 16-38 Wasps

Three changes from Saracens which include Richard Wigglesworth at scrum-half.

They need a change of fortune on the scoreboard as well.

"Criminal" defending from Sarries

Joel Conlon

Saracens flanker on BBC Radio London

It was just a show-and-go from Gopperth, who went through the middle. The way our defensive system works it's just criminal to let him through.

Saracens 16-38 Wasps

Incredible display this so far from Wasps, but can they keep it going for another whopping 35 minutes?

Saracens penalised inside Wasps' 22 as Petrus Du Plessis is caught off his feet.

Try (Gopperth, con Gopperth)

Saracens 16-38 Wasps

My word!

We've picked up from where we left off at the break.

Jimmy Gopperth gets a sixth try of the game for Wasps.

The fly-half wriggles free through the tackles and then adds the extras from his own score and his side are heading for the top four in style.

Saracens 16-31 Wasps

Wasps concede an early penalty and Charlie Hodgson boots it downfield.

Ben Spencer box kick is charged down from the line-out, but Saracens hold them off at the breakdown.


Saracens 16-31 Wasps

And we're back under way.

Can the second 40 minutes match the first?
