Saracens 'confident' ahead of Gnoll test - Itoje
Saracens LV=Cup captain Maro Itoje is looking forward to be playing an in-form Ospreys side, when Saracens travel to the spiritual home of Neath rugby, The Gnoll, on Friday evening.
Itoje, who produced a superb individual performance in a Man of the Match display against Harlequins believes Saracens go into Friday’s game full of confidence after their hard-fought win against their London rivals last weekend.
“We’re in a positive mood going into the game this weekend,” said the 20-year-old skipper. “I felt we played very well in the first half. Harlequins, fair play to them, came back at us in the second half and made it really tough for us. Overall we’re very happy to get the win. Getting a win over your rivals always gives everyone a lift so we’re heading to The Gnoll full of confidence."
He added; “The Ospreys are a top team. They are top of the Pro 12 and have some brilliant players. We have two games this weekend across the squad, so there will be personnel changes. The challenge is to keep a little bit of consistency from last week and put in an 80 minute performance on Friday night.”
