When Saracens take Maro Itoje off after less than an hour it is a safe bet they have the match won and so it proved with a routine victory to Bucks Womens Jersey compound Worcester’s woes. It was a contest that exposed the Warriors’ limitations rather than Saracens’ strengths and, for all the hosts’ huff and puff, the lack of quality is concerning.
They have lost all five of their matches so far, they have publicly confirmed Bucks Jersey that Bucks Authentic Jersey they Kings Jersey are Kings Authentic Jersey seeking investment to ease heavy financial losses and they are rooted to the bottom of the table. Ben Te’o has been linked with Saracens of late and he would have been forgiven for casting an envious eye at the opposition.For Saracens Itojewas robust in the tackle – when is he not? – but it is telling that he was replaced so early considering he had played every minute of his side’s season up until then, on the back of 34 matches in total last term. Saracens, to their credit, keep acknowledging as much, but he is going to need a break if he is to last the course.
“We wanted to get Maro off early today and keep him as fresh as we can,” said the Saracens director of rugby, Mark McCall. “There’s a plan for Maro between England and ourselves. That will be clear in due course but Maro will get plenty of rest.”George Kruis also caught the eye but it was not a classic performance from Saracens, whose failure to record a bonus point – Brad Barritt would have delivered it had he not dropped the ball with the try-line beckoning – allowed Newcastle to go top of the Premiership table by beating London Irish. “It’s a bit of a mixed bag, a mix of emotions,” added McCall. “We defended really well the whole game but there’s big frustration in the group. To not complete the job and get the bonus point is ultimately frustrating.”
Saracens managed only one try in the first half, finished by Chris Wyles after a fine long pass from Alex Goode – a rare moment of quality in a closely fought 40 minutes. Sean Maitland went close on the right – his last involvement before going off with an ankle injury – but the ball was worked back to the left for the American winger to cruise over. Alex Lozowski was on target with the tricky conversion and a Darren Collison Youth Jersey routine penalty but that roused Worcester. They hammered away but while Saracens may have been limited in attack, they were resolute in defence.Saracens repeatedly put boot to ball, often through the scrum-half Ben Spencer, but Chris Pennell is no mug under the high ball and Worcester did register a penalty through Jamie Shillcock, swiftly cancelled out by Lozowski. After 52 minutes Saracens were over again when Goode was clear down the right after Duncan Taylor slipped past Alafoti Fa’siliva. Lozowski missed the conversion but 15 points looked insurmountable for Worcester, considering they had scored only 20 combined in their previous two home matches.
In truth, they did not come close and though some solace can be taken that the floodgates did not open, Wyles added a bit of gloss for Saracens with a sharply taken try in the right corner late on after Goode’s measured kick. “It’s the story of our season so far,” said Worcester’s director of rugby, Gary Gold. “Plenty of courage, plenty of hard work, we never gave up but there were critical errors at critical times. We’re not far off but we’re not scoring tries at the moment.”Elsewhere Newcastle soared to top spot with their fourth win of the season, with Niki Goneva at his dazzling best in a 29-17 win against London Irish. Goneva registered two tries, both before half-time after Juan Pablo Socino had starting things off. Will Welch grabbed the fourth while Conor Gilesan and Tom Fowlie restored some respectability for the Exiles.Meanwhile Byron McGuigan scored a hat-trick as Sale ran in seven tries to thrash Gloucester 57-10 at the AJ Bell Stadium.
