Maro Itoje kicked things off with a superb solo try before scores from Sean Maitland and Brad Barritt saw the hosts take further control of proceedings.

Virgille Lacombe went under the posts after a quick penalty to keep Lyon’s faint hopes alive with just over 10 minute to play, but Alex Lewington rounded off Saracens’ win as he crossed for the all-important fourth try.
