Sanderson hoping to spread the Saracens word

The Saracens squad are currently in the north Atlantic island of Bermuda this week.

The team have visited a number of the islands schools to coach some of the islands up and coming athletes. At Cedar Bridge Academy coach Alex Sanderson and players Richard Barrington, Jamie George, David Strettle and Michael Tagicakibau were on hand to lend their expertise at a coaching session with the pupils on Tuesday afternoon.

Saracens forwards coach Alex Sanderson; "It has been a very enjoyable day. To be able to come and spread the Saracens gospel here in Bermuda is brilliant. The guys seemed to really enjoy today, and if we can provide for them a platform to express themselves then great.

"We just want to have fun. Fun with a rugby ball, and spread the message about how great this game can be".

Saracens are in Bermuda to raise money for the islands Beyond Rugby charity. They will face an invitational select XV called the 'Bermudan Barbarians' on Saturday that includes the likes of Bath and England full-back Nick Abendanon, Sale Sharks' Mark Cueto, Harlequins' No.8 Nick Easter and many more established stars.
