Aug 26, 2014

Global Network review


Six of Saracens nine Global Network teams were in action over the weekend, Henry Fraser rounds up the action.

Abu Dhabi Saracens

Currently in preseason.

Impala Saracens, Nairobi

Looking to continue their success so far in the Safaricom 7's, Impala Saracens started the weekend in great style with an opening 27-0 win over Daystar. Unfortunately back-to-back loses against Kabras and Strathmore resigned Impala Saracens into the bowl competition. Impala Saracens showed their prowess brushing aside teams in the bowl competition to reach the final. An extremely tense match against the Western Bulls was decided by a single score with Impala Saracens winning 5-0.

KL Saracens

Currently in preseason.

Lelo Saracens, Tbilisi

Lelo Saracens continued their victorious start to their title defence with 20-0 victory away against Batumi. Lelo Saracens currently reside in second place, just a bonus point separating them from early league leaders, Kharevi Rustavi.

Moscow Saracens

Moscow Saracens were heavily beaten by league leaders Yenisey Krasnoyarsk  54-17. They remain third with nine points from five games in the play-off round of the top five teams.

São Paulo Saracens

São Paulo Saracens will have to wait another week before they can get their season back on track. The weekends match against Curitiba Rugby was postponed due to no medical support. The revised date is yet to be decided.

Timisoara Saracens beat CSM Olimpia 25-9 in a convincing three try display to confirm second spot in the Super Liga CEC Bank, four points behind leaders Baia Mare.
