Trailing 17-5 at half-time, Chris Boyd's men looked to be in all sorts of trouble.

But the green, black and gold produced a remarkable second half showing to score four tries and win it 31-7 to seal a memorable success.

It was Saints' first win in France in any competition since 2011, and the bonus point victory means Saracens and Gloucester now have to secure five-point wins in their final group games on Sunday to deny Boys's men a place in the last eight..

Saracens are at home to Racing 92 (ko 1pm) and Gloucester travel to Toulouse (ko 3.15pm). Both matches are live on BT Sport.
