Saracens scored a total of 23 tries as the London club demolished Dinamo Bucharest 151-0 in the Parker Pen Challenge Cup.

In doing so they broke almost every record in the competition.

The score was 35 points higher than the previous best, the winning margin 41 points better and the try-count six better.

With the London outfit winning the first-leg match 87-11 in Bucharest, the combined scoreline was 238-11.

Former Australian international centre Tim Horan and hooker Matt Cairns scored a hat-trick apiece in the first-round second-leg tie.

Fijian fly-half Nicky Little and replacement Adryan Winnan kicked a total of eight conversions each in Sunday's record win at Vicarage Road.

Leeds were made to work a little harder for their passage into the second round, with a 52-13 win over Petrarca.

The Premiership side were leading 29-23 after the first leg.

But 17 points from Gordon Ross and two tries from Alan Dickens and Craig Emmerson ensured a much more comfortable route to victory.

Wasps were rarely troubled during their 42-0 win over Overmach Parma.

Fly-half Alex King kicked seven points while former England captain Lawrence Dallaglio was a major influence at the back of the pack scoring two tries.

Elsewhere, a second half hat-trick of tries from England wing Michael Stephenson was the highlight of Newcastle's 33-17 (agg 52-29) win over Grenoble at Kingston Park.

"Our league form has been good in patches and the big thing were trying to shake off is this 'win one lose one' attitude," said Stephenson.
