There’s more to come - Lozowski
Despite winning 44-19 in the Gallagher Premiership semi-final against Gloucester, the whole Saracens group is confident they have more to give.
The Cherry & Whites crossed after one minute before Sarries hit back with six tries at Allianz Park to set up a Twickenham meeting with Exeter Chiefs for the second season in a row.
Victorious over the Devon outfit in the final last term, the Men in Black suffered defeat at Sandy Park in 2017 having just won the Heineken Champions Cup.
With this year’s European title secured, centre Alex Lozowski is hopeful the team can press on to retain their domestic crown.
He said: “We spoke after the last final about how we wanted to crack on and keep getting better. We saw glimpses of that but hopefully there’s more to come against Exeter.”
The England international continued: “Gloucester showed their teeth early on and got off to a great start which was a bit of a nightmare for us.
“We knew it was going to be really hard but to come back from that early setback shows the character of the boys and the team spirit.
“They’ve got some big physical players who I thought we dealt with really well and we just concentrated doing our thing and when we had the opportunity to strike we did that as well.”
Lozowski lost his midfield partner Brad Barritt to injury in the first half of Saturday’s win but his replacement made a massive impact.
On his 100thSaracens appearance, Nick Tompkins crossed for a hat-trick and Lozowski was full of praise for the 24-year-old.
“When Nick came on he was his usual self; full of energy, very direct, aggressive and that’s just what he’s good at.
“To get three tries in a semi-final is amazing especially on his 100thgame – hopefully he’ll do the same next week!”
