the Saracens in the final of the English championship by beating the Harlequins

The Saracens advance to the final of the English championship after their success Saturday (34-17) against the Harlequins. They will face Leicester or Northampton for the title.

Despite an early match rate, the Saracens are qualifying for the final of the England rugby championship, the year of their return to the elite, beating the reigning Harlequins on Saturday (34-17).

Administratively reinstated at the end of the 2019/2020 season for repeated violations of the salary ceiling, the Saracens were remanded after a single year of purgatory, having retained their full effect of international duties.

Seconds of the regular season, they partyed favorably against the Harlequins (3rd), who had beaten twice, 29-22 outside and 19-10 at home.

The Harlequins, however, quickly took the lead with a strong try from Alex Dombrandt (3rd) and a second in the half -time Danny Care, served at height by Marcus Smith after a sublime percussion by the young opener of the XV d’Angleterre (12 -3, 20e).

The Saracens then woke up at the urging of their flanker Ben Earl, who once again justified his designation as a Premier League player. Joe Marler and Will Evans’ double-laying attempt was a fact to explode before he stretched all his way to apply at arm’s length (8-12, 24th).

Profiting from an adverse yellow cardboard, for a dangerous plaque that left an impressive cut on the back of Owen Farrell’s skull, the premises then passed in front. Farrell, who had apparently kept all his spirits up, offered Nick Tompkins an easy test, a very nice pass under his stomach and while he was on the ground (15-12, 35th).

The Saracens were nailed the nail early in the second period by the inconvenient Earl (20-12, 41st), and then by Aled Davies (27-12, 53rd). But three yellow cards against Elliot Daly (57th), Billy Vunipola (63rd) and Alex Lozowski (73rd) could have cost them dearly, an attempt by Cadan Murley to bring the Harlequins to 10 points (27-17, 66th).

Even in digital inferiority, the Saracens finished beautifully, with a third try, in force, with Ben Earl logically elected man of the match (34-17, 80th).

The Saracens will face the winning club in the other semi-final between Leicester, which ended the regular season, at Northampton next Saturday in Twickenham.
