Streather: Saracens ready to fight on all fronts

TimStreatherSaracens1415SB1005

Centre Tim Streather admits Saracens are in for a thrilling end to the season as they head into this weekend’s LV= Cup semi final on an Aviva Premiership Rugby high.

Sarries became the first side to beat Wasps at the Ricoh Arena in the league as tries from Jackson Wray and Chris Wyles, plus 16 points from the boot of Alex Goode, was enough for an impressive 26-17 victory last Sunday.

The win leaves them third as the top half of the Aviva Premiership Rugby table becomes increasingly congested.

And Streather insists the triumph proved the perfect preparation for their LV= Cup showdown with Northampton Saints at Allianz Park on Saturday.

“It was a big game for us as a club,” he said. “Obviously Wasps were tied on points with us so we highlighted it as a massive game and we were very happy to come away with four points.

“It’s a very tight league this year. We identified this point of the season as being very important and to achieve the goals we wanted to at the start of the season.

“So far we are building towards that and progressing well.

"We just have to be at our very best against Northampton, they are a very good side and top of the Premiership so whatever side they put out will be a very strong one.

"We know we will have to be at our very best but we are at home, we take a lot of pride at home and we want to win this and get to the final so we are very excited about the game on Saturday."

There are just five Aviva Premiership Rugby rounds to go, the LV= Cup has boiled down to the last four and there is a European quarter-final on the horizon for Sarries.

It is well and truly crunch time for the Londoners, but Streather insists a long road to success still lies ahead.

“We have a lot of games to play and we’re happy where we are but there is still a lot of work to do,” he added.

“We are under no illusions that there is still a lot to do if we are to continue to challenge and we have to be at our very best if we are going to do that.

“We are very confident in our game plan and the squad that we have got so it is going to be a very exciting end
to the season.

“It’s an old cliché that you only look at the next game but that is exactly what we are doing.

“We trying to get as many points as we can from every game and we are not looking at anyone in particular to try and catch up with.”
