Last Match

vs

29/08/2014 - Goldington Road

Saracens go into the London Double Header on the back of an impressive 3-47 win against Championship side Bedford Blues at Goldington Road.

Mark McCall’s side ran in seven tries against the Championship outfit, with centre Tim Streather crossing for two tries in an impressive personal display.

Two penalty tries plus efforts from Will Fraser, Matt Hankin, Tim Streather (2) and Tom Whiteley inflicted the damage on the Blues as Saracens continued their fine preseason form.

Saracens opened the scoring when referee Dean Richards awarded the visitors a penalty try after Bedford collapsed a rolling maul inches away from their own try line.

Blues full back James Pritchard slotted over a 17th minute penalty to reduce Saracens in their only points in the game.

Saracens went close to extending their advantage with David Strettle and Chris Ashton both going close, but it was fit again Will Fraser who would be the next try scorer when he collected a sumptuous pass from Ben Spencer to crash over just left of the Blues uprights. Hodgson duly converted to give Saracens 3-14 lead after half an hour.

As the opening half wore on David Strettle would be sent to the sin bin for an innocuous looking challenge as the teams went into the break with just 11 points between them.

Mark McCall rung the changes at the break with eleven substitutions and it was centre Tim Streather and flanker Matt Hankin who made a particular impact from the wood.

Flanker Hankin was the one who would open the second half scoring when he finished off an efficient rolling maul in the right hand corner after 46 minutes, with Streather crossing for his first of the game minutes later.

Saracens were in the ascendancy at the set-piece, with replacement Petrus Du Plessis causing all kinds of havoc for the Blues and it came as no surprise when Bedford concede their second penalty try of the game when their scrum disintegrated on their own line.

Next to score was young scrum-half Tom Whiteley who finished off a fine individual effort from the base of the ruck in the 64th minute. Then it was Streather who would score the try of the night. Collecting a Nils Mordt bullet pass, Streather showed superb balance and acceleration to waltz through the Blues defence, passing three would-be tacklers with considerable ease to score under the posts.

Full-Time. Bedford Blues 3 Saracens 47.
