KICKER Andy Allan suffered a broken ankle as Kilburn Cosmos' solid start gave way to disaster and a 31-0 defeat at Saracens Amateurs.

Allan, along with Mike King, Ali Bursey and Dan Riley, had been instrumental in closing down the Sarries defence as Kilburn dominated in the scrum and kept the pressure on.

Cosmos tickled the try line with some soaring signature lineouts from John Fenlon and a high ball and chase from Ryan Coughlan, but missed their handful of opportunities to score.

And the visitors paid for a brief lapse in concentration five minutes from the interval when Saracens put a converted try on the board against the run of play.

A blinding tackle from Riley then halted Sarries but, from the restart, the home side ran in a second try.

Kilburn struggled to cope with the loss of Allan in the second half and conceded three more tries, two of them converted.
