OUR FAVOURITE GAMES # 1 SARACENS v LEICESTER TIGERS 28.5.11
With no rugby in sight for months, I thought this was a good excuse to take a trip down memory lane and republish reports of some of our favourite games. I've started with that first Premiership title back in 2011. If you have a favourite game please post below and over the next few weeks/months I'll republish the report
TIGERS LOSE THEIR BITE
A sunny Allianz Park welcomed a Tigers team that like Saracens have had some trouble securing wins on the road. The visitors came to the game with one win in the last eight meetings between the two team but with one of the heaviest packs ever to play in the Premiership. Could they grind Saracens into submission like the Tigers teams of old?
BACK TO WINNING WAYS
So Round 12 of the GP sees the boys on the road again - to the Gardens. Ourselves and Saints were both recipients of proper towellings last weekend at the hands of Wasps and Exeter respectively, so both sides were looking for a vast improvement in both attack and defence.
THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES
Liam Williams joined Saracens at the beginning of the 2017-18 season with the unenviable task of filling Chris Ashton’s not inconsiderable boots. Our Liam (as our little group liked to call him) does not sport the typical rugby-player’s physique – maybe that was why it took so long for him to be discovered. He was working as a scaffolder until he was picked up by Llanelli scout Kevin George and invited to join the club, moving to Scarlets in 2011. Tall and scrawny with knees so far apart you could fly a small plane through them, many people wouldn’t have given him a second look but on the rugby field he came alive. He had the skill-set, the bloody-mindedness and the determination not to be beaten that made him a winner
A FEW THOUGHTS FROM COVENTRY
Just back - we very much got what we deserved - and so did Wasps who played some delightful rugby; at pace, created many chances and exploited our mistakes. Gopperth and Umaga controlled the game superbly. The opposite of the Sale performance from us, though perhaps good in the long run for we fans to remind us of what a drubbing feels like! We shouldn't expect miracles from our heavily depleted and undermined squad too often.
