Saracens who have been the Champion Cup holders are preparing to achieve 12 straight wins when they take part in English Premiership rivals Sale in Europe on Saturday.
Followed by another weekend of interesting lines, the concern of head knocks will be picked up as George North, the winger of Northampton who was stood down soon after the controversy that took place last weekend in the league action.
The Saints are ready to take on Leinster without North in sole game that would be held on Friday. The Sale captain Josh Beaumont is unsure of what to expect from the champions Saracens who defeated them last month in the Premiership. Beaumont said that they have recently played with Saracens and certainly know how good they are. Saracens are the champions of Europe and the real challenge is to play with them as per the captain.
The next two weeks will definitely be an interesting one. Sale has to stop doing silly errors in the game to ensure that they defeat Saracens which is not at all easy considering how strong and efficient Saracens are.
Saracens was only two wins away to beat the record of Munster of 13 tournament victories which was held between 2005 and 2007. With the signing of the world famous Australian lock Will Skelton, it will be a tough competition indeed. The coach of Saracens Mark McCall, who was defeated by Bath last time in the premiership, has not been defeated in Europe for the last one in the semi final in 2015. During the last season, Saracens successfully won all 9 matches to achieve the title. Now the real challenge is to achieve maximum points by Saracens to ensure that they get qualified to win the match. With the entry of some of the best champions like Skelton, Saracens will certainly make it to victory. All in all, it is going to be an interesting and captivating competition to watch.
