Worcester Warriors were on the other end of yet another Gallagher Premiership drubbing as they conceded 66 points to Northampton Saints at Franklin's Gardens.

Northampton's new South African winger Courtnall Skosan scored a hat-trick of tries as the hosts racked up 10 in total on what was a truly forgettable evening for the visitors.

Skosan's efforts were added to by scores from Dan Biggar, Alex Mitchell (2), Api Ratuniyarawa, Rory Hutchinson and two from Tommy Freeman.

Worcester's only score came from Will Chudley in the first quarter but it proved to be nothing but the merest of consolations.

Having been hit for 48 by Leicester Tigers last week, Worcester were looking for a reaction at the Gardens but it was not to be and an early yellow card for Duhan van der Merwe set the tone for what was to follow.

The Scottish winger winger was sin binned for a dangerous clear out at the ruck after a quick check with the TMO and the hosts got to taking full advantage just minutes later.

Dan Biggar caught everyone napping from a penalty to take a quick tap and burrow his way over the line before Warriors, rather fortuitously took the lead.

Saints tried to play their way out of trouble after the restart but scrum-half Chudley charged down Dingwall's clearing kick to touch down.

Alex Mitchell then profited from a neat backs move from close range to spring through a gap and score as the game swung back in the hosts' favour.

Smith kicked a penalty to reduce the deficit to two points at 12-10 but that was as good as it got for Warriors on the night as it all fell apart thereafter.

Second-row Api Ratuniyarawa showed his strength to muscle over for the third before the bonus-point was wrapped up before the half-hour mark when Skosan got his first of the night after collecting a grubber kick from Biggar.

And then just moments Northampton had a fifth as Hutchinson intercepted a pass from Rory Sutherland to go the length of the pitch and score to leave Warriors 33-10 down.

The second-half was as miserable as the first as Saints just piled on the pressure and did not let off for a single moment.

It started with Skosan spectacularly diving in the corner for his second before Freeman streaked away for the seventh after some rather lousy tackling from Warriors.

The Saints were in relentless form and they past the half-century with still 22 minutes to play as Skosan completed his hat-trick with a simple finish.

Warriors looked shellshocked and did not know where to look as Mitchell scored another before Freeman completed the rout with the last play.

156 points conceded in three Premiership games and another defeat at Northampton.
