The BBC reports that Brent Russel was again looking dangerous over the weekend where his new club Saracens beat struggling Worcester in the English Premiership.
Saracens’ Brent Russell was a constant threat
Saracens (6) 19
Tries: F Ongaro
Pens: Jackson 4
Worcester (3) 6
Pens: L Crichton
Drop goal: L Crichton
Saracens overcame struggling Worcester thanks to a Fabio Ongaro try and the kicking of Glen Jackson.
The home side were below their best but still had too much strength for Worcester who remain in the bottom two in the Premiership league table.
The only try came after a drive to the line was held up short and Ongaro took advantage of an overlap to go over.
Jackson contributed 14 points from the boot, while Worcester scored only through the kicks of Loki Crichton.
Saracens director of rugby Alan Gaffney:
“We came here expecting a hard game and that’s not a trite statement.
“We’ve battled against Worcester for two seasons and not too many sides put them away comfortably.
“We came back from a week’s break and were a bit sloppy in training, and took that on to the pitch. But after the break we played the way we wanted to.”
Worcester director of rugby Mike Ruddock:
“The best team won but I don’t think Saracens played to the level they are capable of either.
“We didn’t play to our potential, but we’ll dust ourselves down and get ourselves right for next week.
“We slipped back into old ways with basic mistakes letting us down. Things that were haunting us earlier in the season re-emerged.”
