There’s a chance, a small chance…but Saracens are doing everything in their power to secure passage to the Champions Cup quarter-finals and keep their dream of defending their European crown intact.
Mark McCall’s side have already secured the try-scoring bonus point at Allianz Park against the Northampton Saints. Sarries are currently leading 62-14 with a few minutes to go. The home team have scored seven tries as they vent their European frustrations on their familiar visitors.
Ultimately, other results will need to go their way but they can at least acknowledge that they have done everything in their power during today’s game to make their slim hopes a reality.
Owen Farrell has been instrumental for the home side so far in this game, kicking six conversions and five penalties to help produce an insurmountable lead. The English fly-half/inside centre played a pivotal role in his side’s third try of the game which was finished off by Marcelo Bosch.
Farrell sells a delightful dummy to carve right through the Saints defence before offloading to Bosch who had the easiest of tasks to touch down for a try.
Check it out below.
That is lovely!
Marcelo Bosch finishes it off but the work from Owen Farrell in the build up is top class. ⚡️
