Charlie Hodgson kicked two penalties for Saracens

Charlie Hodgson and Toby Flood both missed late drop-goal attempts as the Wembley showdown between Saracens and Leicester finished 9-9.

After replacing the off-colour Owen Farrell early in the second half, Hodgson's kicking - both from the tee and in open play - dragged Saracens back into the game. However, after kicking two penalties in quick succession to level proceedings, the 31-year-old was off target with a drop goal in front of the posts.

Opposite number Flood kicked the three penalties that had seemingly put Leicester on course for victory, but the Tigers fly-half was also off target with a drop-goal attempt with the last kick of the game.
