In a breathless first half, Danny Care struck inside two minutes for Quins following a rampaging run by Alex Dombrandt, before Murley strolled over in the corner for his first try after Elia Elia’s offload.
Murley grabbed his second try 10 minutes before half-time, latching on to a Paul Lasike pass after Marcus Smith’s clever dummy on the half-way line.
Alex Lozowski responded with a try for Saracens, but the hosts pulled clear in the second half – as further scores from Gabriel Ibitoye and Lasike put the game to bed.
Dom Morris, on his Saracens debut, went over for the visitors in the second half, while Quins replacement Martin Landajo scored a sixth try late on.
