We never looked like scoring, other than the interception try but it was always going to be difficult against that Saracens side.

Discipline wasn't good, and particularly dull from Will Welch who must have gifted 12 points.
Lineout misfired, as did Saracens' and there were handling errors from both sides.

Major plus for us was the defence which was excellent, well organised and committed.

I was against this exercise from the start (financial gain aside) and not convinced it has offered any benefit apart from the cash.

We cannot possibly be well-prepared for Bath next week after that trip. Probably won't affect Saracens too much as they could beat most teams playing at 70-80%.
