Sportsbeat talks to Will Greenwood
NO Mako Vunipola, no problem – that’s the view of Rugby World Cup winner Will Greenwood who reckons the prop’s three-month injury layoff could be a blessing in disguise. The Saracens star will sit out his club’s Gallagher Premiership run-in with a hamstring issue, set to keep him on the sidelines for three months. Eddie Jones can rest easy as far as Greenwood is concerned, despite the fact Vunipola might miss all of England’s four World Cup warm-up matches over the summer.
Boyde to wear blue
An article looking at the recent announcement that Will Boyde after plenty of rumours on social media was indeed joining Cardiff Blues. A very good back row player who at 24-years old still has plenty of rugby years ahead of him in his career.
SARRIES LOOK TO ADD GLOS TO THEIR SEASON
The season is brewing up nicely for the climax of the Gallagher Premiership and Saracens, reigning Champions and newly crowned Champions of Europe (sounds good doesn’t it) will take on Gloucester Rugby on Saturday for the right to defend their domestic title at Twickenham.
View from the south stand: Sale 46 Gloucester 41
A common saying—a refutation—joyous beginnings—inevitable continuations—mayhem and bewilderment—deja vu—expecting the worst—a magnificent finish.

East Meets West: Gallagher Premiership Playoffs
East plays west this weekend in both Premiership semi finals, with the bookmakers predicting a Saracens: Exeter finale. Bath must once more sit out this stage of the season having failed to live up to hope and hype and managing only ‘third best in the west’ and last minute entry to the Champions Cup. Ardent fans across the country will though be watching these games to see who triumphs as must Bath’s new coaching team, to see how it is done. Who then do we think will win and who, as neutrals would we want to?
That's the league sorted
That's the leagues sorted and Chiefs top it once again but this time with more points and tries than they have previously scored.
Worcester Match Report
I thought that when I brought a caravan in Evesham that Worcester away games would be wonderful. Then they got relegated, the return season was a Friday night game that I could not get to from London in time and when my wife asked me to work this Saturday after some staff illness I realised that it wasn’t to be. I did insist on stopping at 3pm, went home and found a feed on Betfair. It did mean though I got to listen to the ref mike all the way through the game even if the screen was phone sized. There was a pretty strong wind; the home team won the toss and played against it first half, just as Sarries do at Allianz. The first exchanges involved a lot of kicking, but eventually Sarries held on to run with it for a few phases. Earl ran through and was stopped by Teo who laid all over him to give away a soft penalty for a 3 point lead.
New Season Starts Here
After a tremendously entertaining season at Goldington Road it's to be hoped that the season ticket sales break records.
Nothing To Lose
We go head to head with Sarries on their own pitch as underdogs. The home side go into the play-off semis as favourites following another excellent season and a throughly professional performance against Leinster in winning the European Championship.
