Saracens 24-25 Gloucester: Visitors end dry spell as heartbreak ends late for Sarries


Arsenes was beaten at home by Gloucester in a heartbreaking Saturday Saturday for the first time since 2008.

The visitors won 25–24 despite pressure from Surgeon, which saw them with 14 points against two Gloucester players at Sin-Bin during a portion of the first half.

Fraser Balmain, Jack Singleton and Lewis Ludlow scored two penalties and two conversions with Adam Hastings for Gloucester before a late-missing conversion from Alex Lozowski guaranteed their victory.

The Saracens outlasted their opponents in a matter of tries, touching four times through Dom Morris, Rotimi Segundo, Theo McFarland and Alex Levington. However, while Lazowski added extras for two of them, he also missed a simple conversion—his late effort before that became widespread—which ultimately proved costly.

The first 15 minutes were without a score as both sides favored the air route to progress without much success before Gloucester opened the scoring.

He turned down two kickable penalties in favor of a driving line-out and was rewarded with another when Balmain scored a touchdown.

Gloucester were excited to take the opening score, but their enthusiasm turned sour after two players attempted to lose at Sin-Bin within a minute.

First Santiago Carreras was given the yellow card for a deliberate knock-on, before Morris crashed with guest captain Ludlow, then sin-bound to come to the side in an attempt to stop the score.

Gloucester had little chance of containing their opponents with 13 men and it was no surprise when it took advantage of the opening space to leave behind two defenders for the Saracens’ second attempt – both converted by Lazowski. it was done.

Career made a timely comeback so that his side could react directly from the start again. Maro Etoje fails to collect and the ball comes loose and Jordy Reid bursts and sends the over to former Saracen Singleton.
