Fixture News Match Day Guide – Saracens v Saints
The Aviva Premiership returns with a bang on Sunday as the Saints head to Saracens for a first versus second clash at Allianz Park. Here’s everything you need to know about the mouth-watering Round 19 clash…
VENUE Allianz Park
KICK OFF 2.00pm
TV Live on BT Sport, with text commentary at www.saintslive.co.uk
ACTION PREVIEW The big games keep coming thick and fast and having secured a European home semi-final of their own last weekend, Saracens will no doubt be on a high for Sunday afternoon following their excellent display at Ulster.
As well as being top two in the table, Sarries (53) and the Saints (52) are also the league’s top two try scorers.
Couple that with mean defences (Saints 1st, 22 tries conceded; Saracens 4th, 27 tries conceded) and you see that there is certainly very little between the teams!
Saints have overcome Saracens in each of their last four meetings, including last season’s semi-final at Allianz Park, but the hosts will head into the game on a run of five straight Aviva Premiership wins – their last defeat coming at home to London Irish in February
