Will Saracens win a trophy this season?

Post by Mark62 » Sun Apr 16, 2017 12:03 pm

On form they are the best team in Europe. That being said they are playing Munster in Ireland next weekend, hard enough under normal circumstances , let alone the wave of emotion that is helping to carry Munster along this season.
Then looking at the premiership fixtures you would expect Wasps to win their next 2 and Exeter to win their penultimate game, meaning Saracens go to Wasps last game of the season likely to be cemented in third and facing a trip to Sandy Park in the semi.

If they didn't win a trophy would this season be deemed to be a failure

When you are at the top the only way is down!

I still rate them a the best team in the league and probably Europe.

Their form seems to have peaked late in the season but more than enough in the tank to win the AP and CC.

Losing to the sinners just now though

Hardly the highest of peaks, Saracens have lost three of their last five away games in PR; Bath, Worcester and Gloucester.

You might as well say Tigers' recent form late in the season has been impressive. I seem to recall you need seven for it to be statistically regarded as form.

Jinx. Not sure whether that was wanted or not. Bristol pushed Wasps closer than I would have expected, helped by the only 14 points in the last 15 minutes.

One more win for Wasps will secure a home semi and most probably top spot. Expect a semi final on the Friday at the Ricoh.

Out of the three trips we could have, that's the one I fancy our chances in the most.
Blimey...

Sarries sent virtually a second team out against Saints first team and turned them over. That's impressive.

I can't see Saracens being bothered about playing home or away. They've played clever this season and targeted both major competitions. I'd put a lot of money on them squeezing Exeter out of it in the semis and decimating the Wasps pack or us in the final.

Only the Irish teams can stop the double on current form.

But I didn't, the post is about Saracens not Tigers! is this a forum or a kangaroo court where small print required :smt043

I really thought Saracens were going to lose today and what do I know they still managed to bag the win.
They picked a much changed team today leaving out several big players from the 23 altogether which IMO is ominous for the rest, they take risks for development, they could afford it today but still I wonder how many clubs would've risked the win in selection as far as Saracens did today!
