Although A&C competed in the Saracens mini tournament on a number of occasions (winning more than once), this was our first full fixture. Confidence was high after excellent results but in the opening periods it was clear that this would be a hard morning. Saracens played with controlled passion and their handling, on a windy, cold day was excellent. Two tries down at the end of the first period, deservedly, A&C roared back in the second period and quickly scored. Saracens continued to pressurise and despite some excellent defence from A&C, scored twice more. The final try was scored by A&C to bring the score to 12 – 20 and led to a pulsating final few minutes. The scoreline fairly reflected the balance of the game but A&C were never out of the game and the commitment of all players was palpable
