SSA Player of the Month update

First of all, congratulations to Ben Spencer on becoming SSA Player of the Month for March. Ice-cool Ben joins the illustrious list of previous winners for this season. I wonder if the LV Cup winning penalty had something to do with it? But we all know, Ben has really stepped up this season, and has been pivotal in the A-League and LV Cup successes, so the SSA award is well deserved recognition on behalf of Sarries’ fans.

Crouch, Bind, Set

FrontRow-7a

Premiership referees: be scared, very scared, because the next time you officiate at Allianz Park there’s a group of SSA members who are so well informed and knowledgeable on scrummaging that you dare not make an incorrect decision without the error of your ways being presented back to you, ….. in a rather kind and gentle manner!

Hosted by Petrus Du Plessis, aided and abetted by Richard Barrington, Rhys Gill, Juan Figallo and Brett Sharman, the SSA Front Row evening gave unprecedented insights into the good, bad and ugly aspects of the dark arts, as practised by hookers and props

Following on from last season’s Second Row Event, this season we’re going to examine the facts, myths and dark arts of the front row. The evening will be hosted by Petrus Du Plessis, aided and abetted by Richard Barrington, Rhys Gill, Juan Figallo and Brett Sharman. We’ll hear about what happens at the call of crouch, bind, set, and why the referee has no idea what happens thereafter. You will have the opportunity to put your questions to the boys as well, so don’t miss

Heading for the Shed?

Having ended last year with momentum building victories over London Welsh and Newcastle Falcons, and started the New Year with a victory over London Irish, next up, it’s Gloucester on Friday 9th January. With this in mind, GoCarShare, the official car sharing service of Saracens F.C. , are looking to continually and actively engage Saracens fans during 2015, so as to allow as many followers of the Sarries to attend away day games in an easier and cost effective manner. Through use of this service, we hope to bring a large travelling contingent West to raise the roof at Kingsholm on Friday and help the team to yet another

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.

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?
