Stevens previews London Irish clash

Saracens return to Premiership action on Saturday afternoon when they travel to the Madejski Stadium to face an in-form London Irish team.

The game pairs two sides, who find themselves in contrasting positions on the league table, yet conversely are two of the form sides this calendar year.

Saracens have only won one of the last four league fixtures away from home against the Exiles, and prop Matt Stevens knows any visit to Reading will be a battle.

He said: “Every trip to the Madejski has proved to be a tough proposition over the last few seasons, and this weekend will prove no-exception.”

Irish have recently discovered their form and have scored 12 tries in the last six matches, and it is Exiles ability to attack that the ex-England International Stevens highlights as one of their biggest threats.

He added: “It’s going to be a tough game; Irish have recently picked up some good results, and as a side they have always liked to throw the ball about and we are certainly going to have to be on our guard this Saturday.”
