Quins have been busy retaining players reday for a 2020-21 Premiership season without Sarries so we have Will Collier and Alex Dombrandt joining Joe Marler in committing to the club.
IMITATE THE TIGER: BATH v LEICESTER TIGERS
Bath must take a tigerish approach when the Premiership resumes at the Rec on Saturday. Visitors Leicester Tigers started the tournament poorly but have improved in recent matches. A dazzling backs display brought a bonus point win against Bristol in early January, hinting at more to come. Now events beyond the control of either club have changed the dynamics of the tie. So will Tigers’ resurgence continue? Or can Bath gain a home win and build Premiership momentum?
A call to arms…
So the impact of Phil Davies feels like it is starting to take effect, certainly against Newcastle there seemed to be more basics done. Pick and drive, simple line out drills, don’t be afraid to kick… Yes there are still areas of improvement, some within control some most certainly outside, mainly around training 2 evenings a week and a Saturday morning.
Six Nations Sunday
Excellent deal at Butts Park Arena.
SARRIES EDGE A RACING REVIVAL
As I drove to the game, avoiding major road-works, I drove past Richmond Park. I first saw Sarries play there against London Scottish, I think in 1998. We spectators stood on the touchline, separated from the pitch by a rope barrier that gave the touch-judges barely sufficient space in which to run the line. Kyran Bracken was why we were there; he had been a year ahead of my son at school. The opportunity to see Michael Lynagh, Tim Horan and Francois Pienaar also in the same team, was not to be missed. Sarries lost, 24-7, but on that day my support for Sarries was ignited.
Goodbye to Europe
Toulouse showed us what is required to be successful in Europe with a totally deserved 35-14 victory which ended our hopes of being one of the best three runners-up.
On The Up
Good to see Wayne Barnes at Goldington Road playing his part in an enjoyable and sometimes close encounter with Hartpury. A game of two halves with Blues deservedly shading it 28-23 and closing the gap on the handful of clubs seprated by just one bonus point win.
Rollercoaster Ride. Right Result?
SOME may say that Cov are one of the most frustrating sides to follow in the league.
