Saracens take on Harlequins in a London-derby at a sold out Allianz Park on Sunday 24th March and American International Chris Wyles admitted the squad can’t wait for the of the top-of-the-table clash.
Wyles enthused: “It’s pretty exciting. It’s straight after the conclusion of the Six Nations which will mean we’ll have the whole squad back together and let’s not beat around the bush, next weekend is a top of the table clash, and if we come away with a positive result we will be in a good position.”
Next Sunday’s fixture has long been sold-out, and despite the importance and local bragging rights that are associated with the clash against second-placed Quins, Wyles stressed that Saracens will be preparing for this game just like any other.
He said: “It’s our next game, which means it’s our biggest one. Regardless of who we are playing, we treat the next opposition as the most important, and they are our priority and are at the forefront of minds. This week we will be preparing to take on a very good Harlequins side, and our focus will just be that. We endeavour not to get ahead of ourselves or look too far into the future.”
