The SSA Special Award for Outstanding Performance

2ndRow 012 The SSA chooses to recognise outstanding contributions to Saracens Rugby Club by means of a special annual award. Last year the award was made to Richard Hill. This year, the obvious candidate was Steve Borthwick, who recently announced that he would be retiring at the end of this season. Since Steve is unlikely to be available at the time of the SSA Awards Dinner (in September), we took the opportunity at the 2nd Row evening to make the presentation to Steve.

Every Saracens’ supporter will appreciate the energy, humility and leadership that Steve has given to the club

The dark arts of the 2nd Row

2ndRow 010

It’s official; competence in literacy and numeracy are essential qualities to become a 2nd row forward. It also helps to be 7ft tall and weighing in at something approaching 20 stone. A detailed interrogation by our own drop-goal kicking ex-2nd row, Hugh Vyvyan, of four of our current tall boys, uncovered some of the mysteries of line-out codes, random acts of violence in the set-piece and shameful anecdotes of days, and games, gone by. In an ‘enlightening’ evening, Steve Borthwick, George Kruis, Mouritz Botha and Alistair Hargreaves, at Hugh Vyvyan’s prompting, gave us numerous ‘insights’ into life in the

Chris Wyles voted SSA Player of the Month for February

WylesChris Wyles was the winner in the vote for the SSA Player of the Month for February. In a tough month, with games against London Irish, Sale, Exeter and Bath, Chris demonstrated his versatility by playing at centre and on the wing, and by scoring the opening try in a classic encounter away to Bath.

With no home games until the visit of Northampton Saints on April 13th, we will have to wait before we can present Chris with his award, but there’s a queue developing as we also await the opportunity to present Alex Goode with the award for January.

SSA coach travel

Please note that the SSA are planning to run a coach to the Leicester game on May 10th, details will be available on here nearer the time. However, we will not be running coaches to the Harlequins game at Wembley or to the remaining Premiership Away games. It is possible that we will run coaches should we have an away semi-final for the Premiership or Heineken Cup.

Alex Goode voted SSA Player of the Month for January

GoodeyAlex Goode was the clear winner in the vote for the SSA Player of the Month for January. Alex turned in a string of great performances throughout the month, capped by an outstanding try in the Heineken Cup game against Connacht at Allianz Park. Alex is currently with the England squad during the 6 Nations, so we will have to wait until we can present him with his award, but as soon as we can, well make the presentation to Alex after a home game, in the Olympic Bar at Allianz Park.

The Connacht Clan

photo1aDespite their obvious disappointment with the result, the Connacht Clan were in good humour following the HC match at Allianz Park, so long as you chose not to discus the match. The customary exchange of memorabilia took place in the Olympic Bar, with an inscribed ‘commemorative fez’ being presented to our visitors, and, in return, we received a Connacht playing shirt, signed by the entire Connacht squad.
