Charlie Hodgson

Many congratulations to Charlie, having put in an enormous shift in Owen Farrell’s absence, with four very tough games against Bath, Gloucester, Clermont and Munster during October. All being well, we hope to present Charlie with the award after the home European Championship game against Sale on December 13th.

Have you thought about using GoCarShare for away travel?

SSA Quiz Night: Discipline, Honesty, Work Rate, Humility

Quiz 1

 

All four of those well-established Saracens’ values were in evidence at the SSA Quiz Night. With 17 teams (a record!) challenging for the prize of a table in the 100 Club for the LV Cup game against Exeter, a packed 100 Club worked hard on the pre-quiz curry before settling down to tackle the quiz with a sense of discipline and honesty. Humility came into the equation at the end of the evening when the teams finishing first and second opted to stand aside and let the prize go to the third place team. How did that happen?

SSA Awards Evening: Wow! didn’t that go well?

Awards2

First of all, a big thank you to all of our members who came along to the Awards Evening. We were trying a different format, i.e. a buffet reception, and judging by the feedback, it feels as if we’ve got the right formula for Awards Evenings in future seasons. But it wasn’t just the format that made the evening a success; the seven players who came along, our host Hugh Vyvyan, and our guests from the Club, the Sports Foundation and the Saracens WW1 Project all played a big part in making the evening a thoroughly enjoyable occasion.

The award

Saracens and the Honourable Artillery Company: Did you know….?

With Saracens returning this week to the HAC for their game against Ospreys, did you know that the relationship with the HAC goes back over 100 years.

HAC

The first game between the two dates back as far as the 1900/01 season, with the Saracens ‘Crusaders’ side (effectively the 2nd team), under the leadership of J G Brodie, defeating the HAC “A” side for a rare victory that season.

Saracens Rugby Club and WW1: Can you help?

Colin Veitch (Coaching Development Manager for the Saracens Amateurs) and Tom Weir (vice-captain of the amateur 1st XV) have approached the SSA in connection with the Saracens RFC WW1 Project. Colin and Tom have set themselves the goal of uncovering & recording, for the first time, the history of those Saracens Club members that fought and died in the Great War.

Their intention is to pay tribute to our fellow Saracens players who lost their lives in the conflict by creating a Roll of Honour at the Club, which they hope will serve as a permanent and appropriate reminder of their sacrifice.
