Saracens junior academy took on their counterparts from Northampton Saints and the Ospreys on Wednesday afternoon.
Hosted at Saracens training ground at Old Albanians RFC, the triangular format saw the three sides play 40 minutes against each other and offered the coaches of the respective teams a chance to see their younger charges in action for the first time this season.
“It was a good chance to give everyone a bit of game time” explained Academy coach Ian Vass.
“This is the first time after a hard preseason that we could have a look at these players on the pitch”
He added “You don’t really know how some of them will react in a game situation, so we were pleased with how they did out there today, some players really shone and some did better than maybe we expected.”
