Saracens Storm suffered defeat in the final of the Aviva A-League last night after they were beaten 37-12 by Harlequins.

Sarries fell behind to an early Ollie Lindsay-Hague try and Quins extended their advantage in the first half when Darryl Marfo touched down and Ben Botica converted.

Marfo scored his second and Quins' third try of the game before the break to put Sarries 17-0 behind.

The Storm started the second half brightly however and Ben Ransom reduced the deficit shortly after the restart with a well-taken try.

Two Botica penalties though and a Charlie Matthews try put the Men in Black out of sight and Lindsay-Hague wrapped up the match with his second try of the game late on.

Storm never gave up and grabbed a consolation when replacement Nick Tompkins went over and Sam Stanley added the extras - but it was too little too late, and Quins ran out deserving winners.
