Injuries and unavailabilities really pushed the Men’s 1st XV with only 18 players available. In true Sarries spirit the boys took on Al Ain at the Al Ain Rugby Club and never backed down. Unfortunately Sarries lost 24 – 15 against a full complimented Al Ain team. Special mention must go to the Saracens Tight Five of Big Joe, Callie, Joel, Morne and Kurt for an effort that was nothing short of inspirational. Up until the final 15 minutes Sarries were right in the game but fresh legs from the Al Ain team proved the difference. Captain Jonathon Taylor as always led with utter conviction & humbly paid tribute to Al Ain’s win in his post match speech.
Moving forward we’re learned some lessons both on and off the field….. We prepare for our home game this Friday 9th November at Al Ghazal determined to improve from those lessons.
Thank you to all Sarries supporters! See you at Al Ghazal (aka “The Fortress”!) this coming Friday for our game against the Dubai Tigers – 5 pm kick off.
