London - England captain Owen Farrell kicked 20 points on his return to club duty following the World Cup as Saracens defeated Bath 25-12 to chip away at their record 35-point deduction for breaching the salary cap.

The defending Premiership champions were playing for the first time since accepting their points deduction and a 5.4 million fine.

Saracens also scored the only try of the game with winger Sean Maitland crossing in the 33rd minute.

Maro Itoje and Billy Vunipola were also making their first appearances for Saracens since the World Cup final on November 2, while Elliot Daly made his debut at full-back following his move from Wasps in the summer.
