Saracens coach Paul Gustard says his side are 'ecstatic' with their 16-6 victory over Northampton
Saracens defence and forwards coach Paul Gustard said his team are "ecstatic" with their 16-6 win over Northampton Saints.
Alex Goode's first half try and 11 points kicked by Owen Farrell ensured a convincing away victory at Franklin's Gardens.
The result not only knocked Saints off the top of the table but saw Saracens take their place at the summit of the Aviva Premiership.
"We’re ecstatic of course we are," defence and forwards coach Paul Gustard said.
"Particularly denying them a bonus-point in our victory is good for us.
"There's four top sides in the competition all vying for the top positions and for us to come to Northampton where we have had good success in the past but to repeat that in tricky and windy conditions today, I thought the boys did very well and we put in a very good second half performance in particular."
Saracens are now a point ahead of second-placed Gloucester and four ahead of fifth-placed Harlequins but having played a game extra.
