Saracens end Sharks’ play-off hopes

10 May 2003
Saracens end Sharks’ play-off hopes

Sharks miss out on the play-offs involving the top three clubs by virtue of Saints having won just one more game than them. Nevertheless, Sharks still qualify for the Heineken Cup by finishing fourth on the Premiership table.

Saracens, on the other hand, lift themselves to eighth on the table after finding themselves just a single point above the relegation zone. They now face Leeds away on May 18.

Although Saracens only outscored their opposition by four tries to three, it was Saracens fly-half Andy Goode who was on song with his boot to convert all four tries and slot over one penalty.

Wallaby Tim Horan slotted a drop-goal for Saracens towards the end of the game, but the Sharks managed to get a consolation try two minutes from time when England utility back Jason Robinson crossed over for his side's third try and his second of the match.
