SSA PoM for May is …….. Jamie George

Saracens PhotocallMay 2015 – a month we won’t forget in a hurry! And for Jamie George a month, and a season, he won’t forget in a hurry. Having to cope with more than his fair share of hooking in Schalk Brits’ absence this season, Jamie has proved something that we’ve know for a long time, that he’s got a brilliant future ahead of him. Sadly it took an unpleasant gesture from someone who should know much better, to open up the opportunity for Jamie to join the England World Cup training squad. So, an England call-up, the Premiership trophy and now

It’s Billy! For the second time this season, Billy Vunipola scoops the SSA Player of the Month award.

BillyVIt’s Billy!

For the second time this season, Billy Vunipola scoops the SSA Player of the Month award. A huge month for Saracens, and some huge performances from Billy against Racing Metro, Leicester Tigers, Clermont Auvergne and Northampton Saints, although his early departure in the Saints game left us wondering what might have been!

Plans are afoot to make the presentation to Billy, and to Ben Spencer for March, at the WolfPack bus after the game against Exeter Chiefs on Sunday.

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
