Streather ready to push on for Saracens

Streather ready to push on for Saracens

After notching his second try of the season last time out, Saracens centre Tim Streather insists he is almost back to his best.

Streather crossed for the first score as Saracens booked their place in the LV= Cup semi-finals with a convincing 35-18 win over Exeter Chiefs last weekend.

And the 26-year-old is now keen to transfer that form to Aviva Premiership Rugby, starting with Sunday’s home game against Bath Rugby.

Streather does have one league try already this term, when he touched down after just 48 seconds against London Irish back in September.

The former Nottingham flyer has suffered a disrupted campaign since, spending time on the sidelines through injury, but he is hopeful the Chiefs victory could spark something special, both for him and the team as whole.

“It felt like one of our most composed performances as a side together,” Streather told the Saracens official website.

“I thought we had great width throughout the game in defence and they only really troubled us through our own ill-discipline.

“Speno (Ben Spencer) and Nils (Mordt) have controlled things really well throughout this campaign and I thought they were brilliant once again.

“It was a great performance and one that was a pleasure to have been a part of.

“Personally, it was great to cross for a try. It’s been great to get a run of games together and with every match I’m feeling that little bit sharper.

“It’s always great to score in a game like that, but more to the point it helped us get to the semi-finals.”
