A night with The Saracens
With the girls coming back from their week with Dad and Shirley, I took the opportunity to grab a couple of tickets to take Dad to Goldington Road to watch a pre-season friendly:
BEDFORD BLUES 3 SARACENS 47
The final score may have been emphatic but this was always going to be the toughest test of Bedford Blues’ pre-season as they were eventually overpowered by Premiership giants Saracens.
However, this was a gutsy display by the Blues in the face of one of the strongest sides in Europe, who had to work hard for every one of their seven tries.
The hosts restricted Sarries to just two scores as they dug in during the first half, but Saracens were able to bring on 18 players after the break and this amazing strength in depth proved to be too much.
Some huge hits, great view from our ‘directors box’ seats (and a couple of pints of Eagle) turned out to be a really good evening.
